VII. Other Notes

Additional notes

kirsten Aldrich, objects to the merits of prior disclosure based on the following patent as:
US Patent No. US8635327
US Patent No. US8606900
US Patent No. US7272639

These patents reference a "machine" as a requesting client or the actor, while the Kirsten Aldrich's patents reference "applications" as the requesting clients or actors. This difference is one of the main objectives that differentiates Kirsten Aldrich's patents from others.

It is notable that all OAuth reference architectures such as rfc6750, as well as 6749, explicitly use "client application" authentication and "application" requests, and etc.

Only those sections of the relevant entry form where the submitter provided information are displayed.
