Security and Authentication

Portal to send password to open an encrypted file before meeting

Perhaps a secure portal could be added through which an applicant or applicant's representative can send an examiner a password to open an encrypted file containing claim drafts or other material before an interview meeting. The portal would not burden an examiner with any messages or e-mail, but would contain only a password and would indicate the type of file that would later arrive by e-mail or file-sharing platform. Another method to secure and transmit materials before an examiner interview meeting might help productivity during the meeting itself and provide an alternative, if needed or desired, to hand-carrying paper copies to an in-person meeting.
