Route1 Receives Allowance of its U.S. Patent Application for the MobiNET

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Sept. 1, 2010) - Route1 Inc. (TSX VENTURE:ROI), a security and identity management company, today announced that the United States Patent and Trademark Office has allowed Route1's patent application titled, "System and Method for Accessing Host Computer via Remote Computer." Route1 expects it to be issued later this year.

The Route1 patent application claims a method of enabling communication between a host and a remote device using a controller, comprising connecting the controller to the host, connecting the controller to the remote device, the host and the remote device being in separate locations, validating, at the controller, digital identity certificates received from each of the host and the remote device, each identity certificate containing: (i) the public half of an asymmetric key algorithm key pair, (ii) identity information, and (iii) a digital signature of the issuing certificate authority, thereby converting the host to a validated host, and converting the remote device to a validated remote device, receiving, at the controller, a selection of the host from the validated remote device, sending parameters for the validated remote device from the controller to the selected host, sending an instruction, from the controller to the selected host, to establish a connection to the remote device, receiving, at the controller, notifications from the selected host and the validated remote device that a connection exists therebetween, and after receiving notice of a connection between the selected host and the validated remote device, refraining from involvement, at the controller, in transporting data between the selected host and the validated remote device, so that the selected host and the validated remote device subsequently communicate with each other without using any resource of the controller.

The patent application was originally filed on September 7, 2004.

This will be Route1's second patent issued by the United States Patent Office. Route1's first patent, U.S. Patent 7,739,726, issued on June 15, 2010 is titled, "Portable Device for Accessing Host Computer via Remote Computer."

Tony Busseri, President and CEO of Route1, explains, "Our first patent covers our MobiKEY device that is used to enable any computer to remotely access their files on a host computer. Our second forthcoming patent covers our MobiNET controller that sets up the connection between a remote computer and a host computer."
