Aspects of the invention generally relate to a portable storage device having a memory and a standard connector for connecting to a variety of other devices, such as smartphones, tablets, computers, or others. For example, the standard connector can be configured to interface with a cable having a corresponding standard connector on one end and a device-specific connector on the other such that the cable provides the connection between the portable storage device and the other device. The portable storage device can interface with one of such other devices via the standard connector to receive digital data from the other device for storage in memory, or can allow access to digital data stored in memory by the other device.

Aspects of the invention generally relate to a portable storage device having a memory and a plurality of connectors. The portable storage device can include a first connector for connecting to a first remote device, such as a smartphone or tablet. The portable storage device can receive digital data from the remote device, or can transfer digital data to the remote device. The portable storage device can include a second connector for connecting to an external device, such as a computer. Similarly, the second connector can enable the two-way transfer of digital data between the external device and the portable storage device. The portable storage device can include a third connector for connecting to a second remote device to enable the two-way transfer of digital data between the portable storage device and the second remote device. The portable storage device can facilitate data transfer between remote and external devices.

Embodiments of the invention include a caching device for temporary storage of content generated using a content-generating device. The caching device and the content-generating device can be operatively coupled. The caching device can be worn on a users body. The caching device includes a housing, a power source supported by the housing, a storage device adapted to store content, and an antenna supported by the housing. The antenna can transmit or receive content from/to the storage device to/from a content-generating device. The caching device can consume low power and can transfer content at low data rates.

A method for transmitting digital data to a recipient via a communications network includes providing digital data and digitally signing the digital data using N cryptographic keys. Each of the N cryptographic keys is associated with a same sender of the digital data, and N>1. The recipient receives the digital data and verifies the digital signature using N cryptographic keys associated with the N cryptographic keys used to sign the digital data. In dependence upon verifying the digital signature, the recipient accepts the digital data as being authentic.
