  • Publication number: 20190089708
    Abstract: Techniques are disclosed for implementation of a data storage device as a security device for managing access to resources. These techniques can be implemented for multi-factor authentication (MFA) to provide multiple layers of security for managing access to resources in an enterprise and/or a cloud computing environments. As a security device, a storage device can be used a portable device to provide a point of trust for multi-factor authentication across any client application or device operated to access resources. A storage device may be configured with security data for authentication with an access management system. After configuration, a portable storage device may be used for authentication of a user without credential information at any client device based on accessibility of the device to the portable storage device. A storage device configured as a security device can ensure that legitimate users have an easy way to authenticate and access the resources.

  • Publication number: 20190088281
    Abstract: Techniques for management of movable devices are disclosed. A system receives a request for an operation associated with a position on a rail. The system selects a component on the rail to execute the operation. The system identifies a rail segment that extends from the component's initial position to the position associated with the operation. The system requests a reservation of that rail segment. If the reservation is obtained, then the system applies electrical signals to move the component along the rails segment to the rail position associated with the operation. The system may also identify one or more other components, physical cells, etc. to reserve, in order to complete the operation.

  • Publication number: 20190087242
    Abstract: A consumer transmits a set of system updates corresponding to an initial set of events retrieved from an event stream. The consumer determines that acknowledgement of the transmission of the initial set of events has not been received. The consumer executes another retrieval operation to retrieve events from the event stream which results in retrieving an updated set of events. The updated set of events includes the initial set of events and one or more additional events. The consumer trims the updated set of events to remove the one or more additional events and obtains the initial set of events. The consumer re-determines and re-transmits the system updates corresponding to the initial set of events that were obtained by trimming the updated set of events.

  • Publication number: 20190087457
    Abstract: An approach for implementing function semantic based partition-wise SQL execution and partition pruning in a data processing system is provided. The system receives a query directed to a range-partitioned table and determines if operation key(s) of the query include(s) function(s) over the table partitioning key(s). If so, the system obtains a set of values corresponding to each partition by evaluating the function(s) on a low bound and/or a high bound table partitioning key value corresponding to the partition. The system may then compare the sets of values corresponding to different partitions and determine whether to aggregate results obtained by executing the query over the partitions based on the comparison. The system may also determine whether to prune any partitions from processing based on a set of correlations between the set of values for each partition and predicate(s) of the query including function(s) over the table partitioning key(s).

  • Publication number: 20190089698
    Abstract: Techniques are disclosed for enabling a user to validate the authenticity of a computing system (e.g., an access management system) such as one which controls access to one or more resources. A user can determine the authenticity of an access management system before the user provides credential information to the access management system. A user can be presented at a client system with an interface to request authentication of an access management system. The access management system may provide the user at the client system with temporary access information to submit back to the access management system. The access management system may provide recent personal information to the user at the client system to verify the access management system. Upon verification of the personal information, the access management system may prompt the user for credential information to establish a session.

  • Patent number: 10235474
    Abstract: Techniques herein are for navigation data structures for graph traversal. In an embodiment, navigation data structures that a computer stores include: a source vertex array of vertices; a neighbor array of dense identifiers of target vertices terminating edges; a bidirectional map associating, for each vertex, a sparse identifier of the vertex with a dense identifier of the vertex; and a vertex array containing, when a dense identifier of a source vertex is used as an offset, a pair of offsets defining an offset range, for use with the neighbor array. The source vertex array, using the dense identifier of a particular vertex as an offset, contains an offset, into a neighbor array, of a target vertex terminating an edge originating at the particular vertex. The neighbor array contiguously stores dense identifiers of target vertices terminating edges originating from a same source vertex.

  • Patent number: 10234702
    Abstract: In an optical device, a ring-resonator modulator, having an adjustable resonance (center) wavelength, receives an optical signal that includes a carrier wavelength from an input-output optical waveguide. Then, a monitoring mechanism monitors a performance metric (such as an average power or a signal swing) of a monitor optical signal from the ring-resonator modulator. Moreover, control logic in the optical device adjusts the resonance wavelength based on the monitored performance metric so that the resonance wavelength is locked to the carrier wavelength. In particular, the control logic may apply a change to an adjustment signal that is provided to the ring-resonator modulator. If the change increases the performance metric, the control logic may continue to modify the resonance wavelength. Otherwise, the control logic may modify the resonance wavelength by applying one or more changes, having an opposite sign to the change, to the adjustment signal.

  • Patent number: 10229032
    Abstract: Embodiments of the invention provide systems and methods for optimizing handling of breakpoints in a Java debugger agent. Embodiments provide a novel command that allows execution of the application in the debugger to stop or break at the beginning of a next called function or method (e.g., a “break on next called function” or “BNCF” command). When the BNCF command is given to the debugger, a flag may be set in the interpreter of the virtual machine to which the debugger is attached. On encountering a new method or function call, the flag is examined by the interpreter to determine whether it should stop or break in that call. If the flag is set, the interpreter will stop; otherwise the interpreter proceeds.

  • Patent number: 10229158
    Abstract: Approaches, techniques, and mechanisms are disclosed for ensuring that a database command is executed according to a query plan that has been verified to be actually optimal. Except in rare circumstances, a database server does not execute a query plan unless it is first verified by the database server. The database server receives a request to execute a database command. The database server determines an unverified plan is the best plan for satisfying the request. Rather than risk the unknown behavior of an unverified plan, the database server instead satisfies the request according to a verified plan. Subsequently—for example as part of a scheduled job—the database server executes the unverified plan to determine performance statistics. Based at least on the performance statistics, the database server determines whether or not to verify the unverified plan. Techniques for concurrent and optimistic verifications are also disclosed.

  • Patent number: 10229161
    Abstract: Approaches, techniques, and mechanisms are disclosed for improved caching in database systems that deal with multiple data access patterns, such as in database systems that interface with both OLTP and Data Warehouse clients. A cache is deployed between a database server and a storage system that stores data units. Some of the data units accessed by the database server are buffered within the cache. The data units may be associated with data access patterns, such as a random data access pattern or a scan data access pattern, in accordance with which the database server is or appears to be accessing the data units. A processor selects when to cache data units accessed by the database server, based at least on the associated data access patterns. Recent access counts may also be stored for the data units, and may further be utilized to select when to cache data units.
