Example of a patent: The problem of unauthorized access to veterinary records is solved by storing such records on a server (i.e. the cloud) that interfaces with a hand-held device used by veterinarians. Access to the records on the server by the hand-held device is only provided if a pet owner presents an authentication credential containing authentication data unique to that pet owner. In one preferred embodiment of the invention, the authentication credential is a “smart” card containing a chip that stores authentication data.
