  • Publication number: 20190228172
    Abstract: Securing an endpoint against exposure to unsafe content includes encrypting files to prevent unauthorized access, and monitoring an exposure state of a process to potentially unsafe content by applying behavioral rules to determine whether the exposure state is either exposed or secure, where (1) the process is initially identified as secure, (2) the process is identified as exposed when the process opens a network connection to a URL that is not internal to an enterprise network of the endpoint and that has a poor reputation, (3) the process is identified as exposed when it opens a file identified as exposed, and (4) the process is identified as exposed when another exposed process opens a handle to the process. Access to the files may be restricted when the process is exposed by controlling access through a file system filter that conditionally decrypts files for the process according to its exposure state.

  • Patent number: 10128752
    Abstract: In an example, a device for operating a switching converter is configured to determine a set of perturbed duty cycle values for a converter. A perturbation sequence is superimposed simultaneously onto a duty cycle value for each phase of the converter to form the set of perturbed duty cycle values. The device is further configured to determine an output voltage of the converter that occurs when the converter operates based on the set of perturbed duty cycle values, determine a coefficient vector of system parameters for the converter based on the output voltage and the set of perturbed duty cycle values, and tune a controller based on the coefficient vector. The duty cycle value for each phase of the converter is based on a respective command duty cycle value of a set of command duty cycle values output by the controller.
