Application: Encryption-based device enrollment (Patent ID: US20240106808A1)

The patent filed by Zoom Video Communications Inc. describes a method and system for managing device enrollment in a user account. The method involves detecting unauthorized access attempts by unenrolled devices, identifying enrolled devices through a signature chain, facilitating enrollment requests between devices, and updating the signature chain to reflect the enrollment status of the unenrolled device. The system includes processors, a communications interface, and computer-readable instructions to execute the device management process, including verifying timestamps, restricting user-account operations on enrolled devices, and authenticating enrollment requests based on reported and estimated device locations.

The system and method outlined in the patent aim to enhance security and access control for user accounts by enabling the seamless enrollment of new devices while ensuring proper authentication and verification processes are followed. By utilizing cryptographic signatures, encrypted attestation messages, and location-based authentication, the system can effectively manage the enrollment of devices, update user account records, and provide access to unenrolled devices once authenticated. Additionally, the system includes features such as restricting user-account operations on enrolled devices for a specified period and monitoring elapsed time to enforce security thresholds. Overall, the patent highlights a comprehensive approach to device management within user accounts, emphasizing security, authentication, and efficient enrollment processes.
