Agent-implemented locking mechanism Patent #: 5913227
AbstractA system and method for controlling access to an object. The system stores an object and a processor identifier. The system includes a verification agent that can access information embedded in a processor and then calculate from that embedded information a value that may be compared with the stored processor identifier. A comparison agent is used to compare that value with the processor identifier to determine whether the processor corresponds to the processor identifier. If the value that the verification agent returns matches the processor identifier, then the computer grants the user access to the object.
