Accordingly, when the mobile storage device 100 is connected to another host device, or when the IP address of the host device is a dynamic IP address, the address assigned to the mobile storage device 100 may be changed. Alternatively, if the IP address assigned to the mobile storage device 100 or the IP address of the external terminal 130 is a private IP address, a device under a Network Address Translator (NAT) Only the private IP address of the public IP address can be known, and it can not know which public IP address is communicating with the outside. Also, a peer communicating with a NAT sub-device outside the NAT can only know the other party's public IP address and the port assigned by the NAT, and the private IP address is unknown. Also, there is a problem that a peer outside the NAT can not initiate communication with the equipment under the NAT first. Therefore, in this case, there is a problem that the mobile storage device 100 and the external terminal 130 can not start direct communication.

Accordingly, the mobile storage device 100 needs to secure the IP address and the port information so that the mobile storage device 100 can communicate with the external terminal 130 in order to connect with the external terminal 130. The mediation server 123 can be used to secure the IP address and port information. In step S420, the mobile storage device 100 may automatically transmit the registration request to the mediation server 123 to the mobile storage device 100. [ Where the registration request may include address information that is assigned to the mobile storage device 100 when the connector is connected to the host device 110. [

Thereafter, in step S430, the mobile storage device 100 connects to the external terminal 130 using the intermediary server 123, and can transmit and receive data by P2P. Here, the mediating server 123 may perform hole punching between the mobile storage device 100 and the external terminal 130.

The current Internet addressing scheme is an addressing scheme in which a global address area and a private address area are connected through a network address transform. Therefore, there is a need for a method for direct communication between the mobile storage device 100 and the external terminal 130, which are two peers in different private networks. Here, hole punching means securing an IP address and a port so that direct communication between peers that can not be directly TCP / UDP communication is possible. A P2P connection between the mobile storage device 100 and the external terminal 130 existing in different networks can be configured using the hole punching.

For example, when providing the mailing service using the mobile storage device 100, the mobile storage device 100 can receive the mail from the external terminal 130 or send the mail to the external terminal 130 . When a mail containing a receiver's mail address is sent from the external terminal 130 and a mail matching the mail address of the mobile storage device 100 is detected by the intermediation server 123 , The mediation server 123 may cause the sent mail to be transmitted to the mail server provided by the mobile storage device 100 and stored in the mobile storage device 100. [

Alternatively, when a media service is provided using the mobile storage device 100, the media portal server 125 may be requested to play media through a portal page. In this case, the mediating server 123 can establish a P2P connection so that the mobile storage device 100 storing the media file and the external terminal 130 can transmit and receive the file.

The mediation server 123 mediates the service so that the service can be delivered to the correct location, for example, in the matching table updated by the block chain server in the case of the mail service. In the case of a mail transmission service, a mail can be transmitted by mapping an address dynamically allocated to the mobile storage device 100 to a virtual fixed address registered at the time of user registration for the mail service. When a media file is transmitted, when a thumbnail or the like of the media displayed on the portal page is selected by user input, the location of the file of the media is mapped with a virtual fixed address and an address dynamically allocated to the mobile storage device 100, Service is provided. In the case of web hosting, the service can be provided by mapping the dynamic fixed address and the dynamically allocated address by the intermediary server.

In this case, the host device 110 may include a display device or a device capable of outputting a screen through a separate display device. For example, the host device 110 may be a computing device connected to the Internet, such as a PC or a smartphone. Or a display device connected to the Internet, such as a host device 110 connected television. Also, according to the embodiment, the mobile storage device 100 may display the membership joining GUI through a display device separate from the host device 110 in step S521.

According to some embodiments, the mobile storage device 100 may allow the host device 110 to display a web page including a subscription GUI using a predetermined URL (Uniform Resource Locator) via a web browser. Alternatively, according to another embodiment, the mobile storage device 100 may execute an application built in the mobile storage device 100 and output an application execution screen including a membership application GUI through the host device 110. [

Thereafter, when the user inputs membership subscription information using the subscription GUI, the mobile storage subsystem 100 can acquire membership subscription information through the host device 110 in step S522. The mobile storage device 100 may transmit the acquired membership subscription information to the platform authentication server 122 to register the mobile storage device 100 as a user device that has input the membership subscription information. In this case, the platform authentication server 122 may match and register the information for identifying the mobile storage device 100 and the user information included in the membership subscription information in step S523.

According to some other embodiments, the mobile storage device 100 may send membership information to the device authentication server 121 along with the device identifier. The device authentication server 121 can first verify whether the device identifier is valid. If the device identifier is valid, the device authentication server 121 can register the user information included in the membership subscription information.

According to some other embodiments, the mobile storage device 100 may execute the subscription process only if it is authenticated to the device from the device authentication server 121 using the device identifier. Referring to FIG. 8, firstly, in step S531, the mobile storage device 100 may transmit an authentication request including a device identifier to the device authentication server 121. FIG.

Thereafter, in step S532, when the mobile storage device 100 succeeds in authentication using the device identifier, the mobile storage device 100 may receive information indicating that the authentication is successful. If the authentication is successful, the mobile storage device 100 can display the membership joining GUI through the host device 100 in step S533.

Thereafter, when the user inputs the membership subscription information into the displayed subscription GUI, the mobile storage device 100 can acquire the entered membership subscription information in step S534. The mobile storage device 100 may also transmit membership subscription information to the platform authentication server 122. Depending on the embodiment, the mobile storage device 100 may forward membership subscription information to the platform authentication server 122 via the device authentication server 121. [

The platform authentication server 122 may generate a device unique key for the mobile storage device 100 when the mobile storage device 100 first logs in. The mobile storage device 100 may obtain the device unique key generated from the platform authentication server 122 (S535).

The mobile storage device 100 may register the entered membership subscription information in the platform authentication server 122. [ Here, the platform authentication server 122 may store the generated device inherent key in association with the membership subscription information (S536). When the membership subscription information is registered in the platform authentication server 122, the mobile storage device 100 can log into the platform authentication server 122 using the login information included in the membership subscription information.

According to some embodiments, when the mobile storage device 100 holding the device unique key is connected to the host device 110, the platform authentication server 122 may validate the unique key of the mobile storage device 100 . When the unique key of the mobile storage device 100 is valid, the stored membership information is matched with the high-quality key, and the login procedure for the mobile storage device 100 is performed using the login information included in the inquired member subscription information can do. That is, after the mobile storage device 100 that has been purchased is registered with the subscription information at the time of first use by the user, the mobile storage device 100 can access the platform authentication server 100 without using any login information, The user can log in to the server 122. Thus, even when the mobile storage device 100 is connected to the host device 110 (for example, the Internet IP address router) without the input device, the platform authentication server 122 can log in. Logging in to the platform authentication server 122 means an operation of authenticating the user from the platform authentication server 122 and confirming the user of the mobile storage device 100.

In the process shown in FIGS. 7 and 8, the membership subscription information and the membership subscription GUI may be a login GUI for receiving login information and login information when the subscription information of the user is pre-registered. The membership information of the user may be registered in the device authentication server 121. Alternatively, the membership information of the user may be registered in the platform authentication server 122. Here, the login information may be information for a user to perform login. For example, the login information may include at least one of a user ID, a password, and biometric information.

If it is determined in step S502 of FIG. 5 that there is a history that the mobile storage device 100 is connected to the network through the host device 110, the mobile storage device 100 logs into the platform authentication server 122, 130, respectively. Alternatively, after the mobile storage device 100 has been registered (S513, S523, or S536) in the platform authentication server 122, the mobile storage device 100 may log in to the platform authentication server 122, Lt; RTI ID = 0.0 > and / or < / RTI >

Referring to FIG. 9, the mobile storage device 100 according to some embodiments may send an authentication request to the platform authentication server 122 in step S541. Here, according to some embodiments, the authentication request transmitted to the platform authentication server 122 may include information on the device inheritance key issued by the mobile storage device 100. The information about the device inheritance key may be the device inherent key itself or information related to the device inherent key. Or some other embodiment, the authentication request sent to the platform authentication server 122 may include login information for the user.

If the authentication corresponding to the authentication request transmitted to the platform authentication server 122 is successful, the address information of the mobile storage device 100 can be registered in the mediation server 123 in step S543. If authentication fails, the mobile storage device 100 may attempt authentication in another manner, attempt authentication again, or terminate the process. Also, according to some embodiments, when data indicating authentication failure is received from the platform authentication server 122, the processor 101 of the mobile storage device 100 outputs the status information about the authentication failure by the indicator 104 The control signal can be outputted. Here, the address information may include an IP address currently assigned to the mobile storage device 100. [ The mobile storage device 100 may forward the address information to the platform authentication server 122 and the platform authentication server 122 may register the address information in the mediation server 123 in step S543. Alternatively, the mobile storage device 100 may receive data indicating that the authentication is successful, and may transmit the address information of the mobile storage device 100 to the mediation server 123 in response to the received data. Alternatively, the mobile storage device 100 may register the address information in the mediation server 123 through another process.

When the address information of the mobile storage device 100 is registered in the mediation server 123, the mobile storage device 100 can be connected to the external terminal 130 through the hole punching process using the mediation server 122 in step S544 have. The method of performing the hole punching between the mobile storage device 100 and the external terminal 130 may be changed according to the embodiment. For example, according to the embodiment, hole punching between the mobile storage device 100 and the external terminal 130 may be performed through a relaying method or a connection reversal method .

Since the mobile storage device 100 and the external terminal 130 transmit and receive P2P data in a hole punching manner, the user can store the storage 103 of his or her own mobile storage device 100 without uploading the content to an external server The online service can be provided only by the contents stored in the online service.

Accordingly, the external terminal 130 acting as a client can be connected to the mobile storage device 100 such that the external terminal 130 accesses the server. According to some embodiments, a URL (Uniform Resource Locator) may be configured based on the membership information matched with the address information of the mobile storage device 100. For example, if the user ID included in the membership information is " username ", the mediation server 123 may determine that the URL to the mobile storage device 100 is " https://username.hashblk.com/ . When the external terminal 130 requests the mediation server 123 for the address information for " https://username.hashblk.com/video/ucc.mp4 ", the mediation server 123 transmits the " https: // username. the address information of the mobile storage device 100 corresponding to " hashblk.com/ " can be retrieved from the matching table stored in the mediating server 123. The mediation server 123 may connect the mobile storage device 100 to the external terminal 130 using the inquired address information. In this case, the external terminal 130 can receive a file " ucc.mp4 " stored in the " video " folder of the storage 103 of the mobile storage device 100. [

In order for the mobile storage device 100 to function as a server in the service of the server-client model, the external terminal 130 may be connected to the mobile storage device 100 as a client connects to a server having a fixed IP address You need to be able to connect using a fixed address. However, when the mobile storage device 100 is connected through the host device 110 having a dynamic IP address or when the host device 110 to which the mobile storage device 100 is connected is changed, The address may change. Accordingly, the mobile storage device 100 can check the address information of the mobile storage device 100 in step S551 of FIG. 10, and determine whether the address information of the mobile storage device 100 is changed in step S552. The mobile storage device 100 may determine whether the address information of the mobile storage device 100 matches the address information registered in the mediation server 123. [ According to some embodiments, when the host device 110 connected to the mobile storage device 100 is changed or the address information of the host device 110 is changed, the mobile storage device 100 transmits the address information of the mobile storage device 100 It can be judged that it has been changed.

If the address information is changed, the mobile storage device 100 may transmit to the mediation server 123 an address information update request including the identified address information of the mobile storage device 100 to the mediation server 123 in step S553 . The mobile storage device 100 can check the address information of the mobile storage device 100 and update the address information of the mobile storage device 100 matched to the fixed address when the address information is changed. Accordingly, the external terminal 130 can be connected to the mobile storage device 100 using the fixed address.

11 is a diagram for explaining a process in which the mediation server 123 performs hole punching between the mobile storage device 100 and the external terminal 130 according to some embodiments.

The mobile storage device 100 may send a registration request including address information to the mediation server 123 in step S1110. The mediation server 123 receiving the registration request can update the matching table according to the received address information. The matching table refers to data stored by matching the address information of the mobile storage device 100 with other information. Other information may include, for example, one or more of information for identifying the mobile storage device 100, login information for identifying the user, and information about the service provided by the mobile storage device 100 have.

If the IP address assigned to the mobile storage device 100 is a private IP address, the mobile storage device 100 can not know the public IP address. In order to obtain a public IP address, the mobile storage device 100 may send a packet to the mediation server 123 in step S1110. In the header of the transmitted packet, the public IP address assigned by the NAT and the port assigned to the external terminal 130 by the NAT are recorded. Therefore, the mediation server 123 can know the public IP address and port that the mobile storage device 100 uses for communication with the outside of the NAT. The mediation server 123 may notify the mobile storage device 100 of a public IP address and port for the mobile storage device 100, if necessary. Through this process, the mobile storage device 100 can know the public IP address and port used for communication with the outside of the NAT.

Then, in step S1130, the external terminal 130 may transmit an address information request for the address information of the mobile storage device 100 to the mediation server 123. [ According to some embodiments, the address information request may include information for querying the address information of the mobile storage device 100 in the matching table. For example, when the mobile storage device 100 wants to transmit a mail to the external terminal 130 using a mail receiving service for receiving mail, the external terminal 130 transmits an address information request including a mail address . In this case, the mediating server 123 can inquire the address information of the mobile storage device 100 corresponding to the mail address.

For example, when receiving media content through the media sharing service provided by the mobile storage device 100, the external terminal 130 transmits an address information request including a URL indicating the location of the media file to the mediation server 123).

For example, if the external terminal 130 wants to transmit media content to the mobile storage device 100, the external terminal 130 may exchange the address information request including the user ID of the mobile storage device 100 And transmits it to the server 123.

In another example, when the external terminal 130 wants to receive a web page through the web hosting service of the mobile storage device 100, the external terminal 130 stores the address information including the URL indicating the location of the web page Request to the mediation server 123.

Thereafter, in step S1140, the mediation server 123 may transmit the inquired address information to the external terminal 130 in response to the address information request. According to some embodiments, the address information that the mediation server 123 transmits to the external terminal 130 may include a public IP address, a private IP address, and port information associated with the mobile storage device 100.

Thereafter, in step S1150, the external terminal 130 may transmit the packet to the mobile storage device 100 using the address information obtained from the mediation server 123. [ In step S1150, the external terminal 130 can transmit a packet to the private IP address and the port. In step S1160, when the external terminal 130 transmits a response packet to the packet transmitted from the external terminal 130 to the mobile storage device 100, the external terminal 130 transmits the private IP address and the port And P2P transmission / reception with the mobile storage device 100 based on the received data.

If there is no response to the private IP address and the packet transmitted to the port in step S1150, the external terminal 130 can transmit the packet to the public IP address and port. Thereafter, when a response packet is transmitted from the mobile storage device 100 to the external terminal 130 (S1160), the external terminal 130 performs P2P transmission / reception with the mobile storage device 100 using the public IP address and port (S1170).

If no response packet is received for a packet transmitted to the public IP address and port, the external terminal 130 may delegate transmission and reception of a packet to the intermediate server 123.

Also, hole punching may be attempted by the external terminal 130 and the mobile storage device 100 performing operations opposite to each other. At least one of the external terminal 130 and the mobile storage device 100 periodically connects with the external terminal 130 and the mobile storage device 100 when the hole punching is successful and the connection between the external terminal 130 and the mobile storage device 100 is established, A heartbeat message can be sent to check whether the connection between the devices 100 is valid.

12 is a diagram illustrating an example of a matching table 1200 according to some embodiments.

According to some embodiments, the matching table 1200 includes a device identifier 1211, a public IP address 1212, a private IP address 1213, port information 1214, a user ID 1215, a password 1216, And may include a unique key 1217. However, the matching table 1200 shown in Fig. 12 is only an example for explaining some embodiments. The matching table 1200 may include items different from those shown in FIG. 12, do not include some of the items shown in FIG. 12, or may further include other items.

13 to 15 are diagrams for explaining a method of providing contents using a peer-to-peer (P2P) file sharing scheme according to some embodiments.

Referring to FIG. 13, the first mobile storage device 100-1 may store the content 1. FIG. Here, the content 1 may be an object that can be shared through data transmission. For example, the content 1 may include a media file such as an audio file or a moving picture file, or may be an electronic document including text. Also, the first mobile storage device 100-1 and the second mobile storage device 100-2 may be devices registered in the mediation server 123. [ Here, the mediating server 123 may have a matching table including information on contents stored in the first mobile storage device 100-1 and the second mobile storage device 100-2.

The mediation server 110 is configured to store the contents 1 stored in the first mobile storage device 100-1 in the first mobile storage device 100-1 and the second mobile storage device 100-2 so that the contents 1 stored in the first mobile storage device 100-1 can be stored in the second mobile storage device 100-2. 2 mobile storage device 100-2. For example, if the second mobile storage device 100-2 transmits a request for the content 1, the mediation server 123 may determine that the first mobile storage device 100-2 and the second mobile storage device 100 -2). ≪ / RTI > Alternatively, if the traffic for the content 1 increases, the amount of traffic to be processed around the first mobile storage device 100-1 is small or the second mobile storage device (for example, 100-2). Here, the mediating server 123 may update information indicating that the second mobile storage device 100-2 is storing the content 1 in the matching table. As shown in FIG. 14, the second mobile storage device 100-2 can receive and store the content 1 from the first mobile storage device 100-1.

Thereafter, the mediation server 123 may receive a provision request for the content 1 from the third mobile storage device 100-3. For example, when an item for the content 1 displayed on the portal page provided by the media portal server 125 by the user of the third mobile storage device 100-3 is selected, the third mobile storage device 100- 3 may forward the address information of the content 1 to the mediation server 123 to the media portal server 125. [ The mediation server 123 can mediate a connection between the third mobile storage device 100-3 and one or more of the first mobile storage device 100-1 and the second mobile storage device 100-2. In this case, as shown in FIG. 15, the third mobile storage device 100-3 receives the content 1 from either the first mobile storage device 100-1 or the second mobile storage device 100-2 Or may divide and receive the content 1 from the first mobile storage device 100-1 and the second mobile storage device 100-2.

As shown in FIGS. 13 to 15, it is possible to increase the number of mobile storage devices capable of sharing contents 1 through P2P transmission / reception among a plurality of mobile storage devices and providing contents 1. Therefore, even if the traffic for sharing the content 1 increases, it is possible to prevent the traffic from being concentrated in one mobile storage device and causing an overload to occur.

FIG. 16 is a view for explaining a method of providing content using a content delivery server 124 by the mobile storage device 100 according to some embodiments.

In step S1610, the mobile storage device 100 may calculate read access traffic for the content stored in the mobile storage device 100. [ That is, the mobile storage device 100 may calculate the amount of requests for content. Thereafter, in step S1620, the mobile storage device 100 may determine whether the calculated read access traffic exceeds a reference value. According to another embodiment, S1610 and S1620 may be performed by the mediation server 123. [

If the read access traffic exceeds the reference value, the mobile storage device 100 may transmit the content to the content delivery server 124 in step S1630. According to some embodiments, when the mobile storage device 100 transmits content to the content delivery server 124, the mobile storage device 100 transmits the output of the indicator 104 to the content delivery server 124 in order to output the status information sent to the content delivery server 124 It is possible to output a control signal to be controlled.

Thereafter, when the read access to the content is received in step S1640, the mobile storage device 100 may redirect the read access received in step S1650 to the content delivery server.

That is, when the content is requested by a plurality of users, the mobile storage device 100 having a limited capacity to process the traffic may not sufficiently handle the read access to the content. Accordingly, the mobile storage device 100 may upload the content having a high number of times to the content delivery server 124 to allow the content delivery server 124 to provide the content.

In addition, the content uploaded to the content delivery server 124 may be inactivated or deleted by the content delivery server 124 if the read access traffic for the content is lower than the reference value.

17 is a diagram illustrating a process that can be performed when the content is exposed through the media portal service provided by the media portal server 125 according to some embodiments.

The media portal server 125 may expose information about one or more of the contents to be shared by the mobile storage device 100. [ For example, the media portal server 125 may expose information about content that has generated a large number of read accesses or content selected by an administrator of the media portal server 125. In addition, the content exposed through the media portal service of the media portal server 125 may be content uploaded to the content delivery server 124 since it is a content in which a plurality of read accesses occur.

When the content stored in the mobile storage device 100 is exposed to the media portal service, the media portal server 125 may transmit data indicating that the content is exposed to the media portal service to the mobile storage device 100. In step S1710, when the mobile storage device 100 receives data indicating that the content is exposed to the media portal service, in step S1720, the mobile storage device 100 transmits status information indicating that the content provided by the mobile storage device 100 is exposed to the media portal service It is possible to control the indicator 104 so that the indicator 104 is output.

A user sharing content via the mobile storage device 100 may disconnect the connection between the mobile storage device 100 and the host device 110 to stop sharing the content stored in the mobile storage device 100 . In this case, the sharing of the content through the content delivery server 124 should also be stopped. Therefore, if the mobile storage device 100 is disconnected from the host device 110 in step S1730, the content may be deactivated or deleted in the content delivery server 124 in step S1740.
