Self Modifying Access Code For Altering Capabilities

View page
US Patent:
5671281, Sep 23, 1997
Filed:
Aug 10, 1994
Appl. No.:
8/288100
Inventors:
John Edward Campbell - Hurley NY
Michael James Chan - Raleigh NC
Steven Frank Hajek - West Hurley NY
Paul Leonard Wiltgen - Hurley NY
Assignee:
International Business Machines Corporation - Armonk NY
International Classification:
H04L 932
H04L 900
US Classification:
380 25
Abstract:
A system is disclosed for selectively altering the functional characteristics of a data processing system without physical or mechanical manipulation by providing an access code from a remote personal identification number generator to a secure controller and store of the computer system. This enables remote authorization of change in function of the computer system, such as performance tune up, speeding clock time, changing function and like changes. The computer system is first manufactured having a predetermined set of functional characteristics. A multibit alterable code which includes a functional characteristic definition is then initially loaded into physically secure, nonvolatile memory within the data processing system, utilizing an existing bus, or a fusible link which may be opened after loading is complete. The functional characteristic definition is loaded from nonvolitile memory into a nonscannable register within a secure portion of a control logic circuit each time power is applied to the data processing system and the definition is then utilized to enable only selected functional characteristics. Alternate functional characteristics may thereafter be selectively enabled by entering a security code which matches one of a number of preloaded codes and an encoded alternate functional characteristic definition.

US Patent:
5553144, Sep 3, 1996
Filed:
Mar 7, 1995
Appl. No.:
8/439934
Inventors:
Frank A. Almquist - Kingston NY
David F. Anderson - LaGrangeville NY
John E. Campbell - Hurley NY
Michael J. Chan - Kingston NY
Stephen W. Flaherty - Fishkill NY
Steven F. Hajek - West Hurley NY

Assignee:
International Business Machines Corporation - Armonk NY
International Classification:
H04L 900
H04L 932
US Classification:
380 25
Abstract:
A method and system are disclosed for selectively altering the functional characteristics of a data processing system without physical or mechanical manipulation. A data processing system is first manufactured having a predetermined set of functional characteristics. A multibit alterable code which includes a functional characteristic definition is then initially loaded into physically secure, nonvolatile memory within the data processing system, utilizing an existing bus, or a fusible link which may be opened after loading is complete. The functional characteristic definition is loaded from nonvolatile memory into a nonscannable register within a secure portion of a control logic circuit each time power is applied to the data processing system and the definition is then utilized to enable only selected functional characteristics. Alternate functional characteristics may thereafter be selectively enabled by entering a security code which matches one of a number of preloaded codes and an encoded alternate functional characteristic definition. The alternate functional characteristic definition may be enabled on a one-time, metered, or regularly scheduled basis and variable capability data processing systems may be implemented in this manner utilizing a single manufactured system, without the necessity of manufacturing and storing multiple data processing system models.
