  • Publication number: 20130291061
    Abstract: An application to be installed is acquired. Security policy geographic information, which is geographic information of an application's target distribution area where a user permits installation, is acquired from security policy that defines processing regarding the application. Application geographic information, which is geographic information of an application's target distribution area, is acquired from the acquired application. Based on a comparison result of comparing the security policy geographic information with the application geographic information, whether or not to permit installation of the acquired application is determined.

  • Patent number: 8421657
    Abstract: In a microcomputer 10 which converts an analog signal Vin into digital data and corrects an error of the digital data, a voltage variation ?Vcc is calculated on the basis of a first conversion value obtained by AD-converting a reference voltage Vref by an AD converter 15 in a state that a standard power source voltage including no voltage variation is supplied to the AD converter 15 and a second conversion value obtained by AD-converting the reference voltage Vref by the AD converting section in a state that a power source voltage for the ordinary operation is supplied to the AD converter 15. The digital data produced by the AD converter 15 by AD-converting the analog signal Vin is corrected using the calculated voltage variation ?Vcc.

  • Patent number: 8228572
    Abstract: A correction of a deviation in the sub-scanning direction of a scan line accompanied by a correction of a main scan positional deviation of each sheet feeding port is insufficient. According to the present technique, therefore, the positional deviation in the sub-scanning direction of an image to be printed is corrected by using a correction amount regarding the main scan positional deviation which is decided based on an adjustment value of a print position of the sheet feeding port and information of the positional deviation in the sub-scanning direction of an image forming apparatus.

  • Publication number: 20110271324
    Abstract: A communication apparatus having a transmission function for transmitting data to another apparatus using a transmission protocol selected from a plurality of transmission protocols. A multifunction printer (MFP) implementing the communication apparatus authenticates a user, and acquires destination information associated with the authenticated user. The MFP permits the use of a specific transmission protocol for transmission using the acquired destination information, and restricts the use of the specific transmission protocol for transmission using other destination information. Further, the MFP permits display of destination information matching the acquired destination information, but restricts display of other destination information, among destination information stored in a hard disk in association with the specific transmission protocol.
