Claim of US Patent No. 9,713,184

1. A method for performing a trusted interaction between a first communication device configured to establish a first wireless
type communication channel and one or more second devices configured to operate on said first wireless type communication
channel, said first wireless type communication channel being of the type suitable to allow the implementation of discovery
operations to search for devices among said one or more second devices that become visible, or discoverable, on said first
wireless type communication channel within a radius of operation of said first wireless type communication channel, said method
providing that said first communication device publishes its device attributes on said first wireless type communication channel
to become visible, and detects through said first wireless type communication channel attributes published by said one or
more second devices to become visible or discoverable, said first communication device accessing a database that comprises
stored attributes of devices to become visible,
wherein
said first communication device is configured to establish a second communication channel to communicate in a client-server
communication relationship with a remotely located computer server to which said database is associated,

said first communication device, after a discovery operation to detect said one or more second devices, sends through said
second communication channel to said remotely located computer server a corresponding decoding request comprising at least
one system identifier, assigned in the database to said first communication device, and said attributes of the one or more
second devices detected on said first wireless type communication channel,

said remotely located computer server performs with respect to said decoding request a decoding operation that comprises at
least one step of obtaining from said database, a respective system identifier of said one or more second detected devices,

said remotely located computer server sends through said second communications channel to said first communication device
a decoding message comprising a result of said decoding operation that comprises said system identifier,

at the first communication device based on the results indicated in said decoding message received from the remotely located
computer server the system identifier received from said remotely located computer server is recorded and the availability
of a determined mode of access to information or services of the one or more second devices detected;

wherein said decoding operation further comprises verifying if, within a determined interval of time, a second decoding request
initiated by the detection of the first communication device by the second detected device has also arrived at the remotely
located computer server.
