Title (EN) PEER-TO-PEER TELEPHONE SYSTEM AND METHOD
(FR) SYSTEME TELEPHONIQUE POSTE A POSTE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)There is provided a peer-to-peer telephone system (10) comprising a plurality of end-users (20, 30) and a communication structure (80) through which one or more end-users (20, 30) are couplable for communication purposes. The system (10) is distinguished in that: (a) the communication structure (80) is substantially de-centralized with regard to communication route switching therein for connecting said one or more end-users (20, 30); (b) said one or more end-users (20, 30) are operable to establish their own communication routes through the structure (80) based on exchange of one or more authorisation certificates, namely User Identity Certificates (UIC), to acquire access to the structure (80); and (c) said structure (80) includes an administration arrangement (100) for issuing said one or more certificates to said one or more end-users (20, 30).
(FR)L'invention se rapporte à un système téléphonique poste à poste (10) comportant une pluralité de postes utilisateurs finals (20, 30) et une structure de communication (80) à travers laquelle un ou plusieurs desdits postes utilisateurs (20, 30) peuvent être connectés à des fins de communications. Ce système (10) se distingue en ce que: (a) la structure de communication (80) est sensiblement décentralisée par rapport à la commutation de voies de communication utilisée pour connecter le ou lesdits postes utilisateurs (20, 30); (b) ledit ou lesdits postes (20, 30) peuvent établir leurs propres voies de communication à travers la structure (80) en fonction de l'échange d'au moins un certificat d'autorisation, notamment un certificat d'identité utilisateur (UIC), afin d'obtenir l'accès à ladite structure (80); et (c) ladite structure (80) comprend un agencement de gestion (100) permettant de délivrer un ou plusieurs certificats audit ou auxdits postes utilisateurs (20, 30).
