  • Patent number: 10742493
    Abstract: Remote configuration of network interface cards (NICs) on appliances of a scaleable compute resource such as a frame-based system is disclosed. Frames may include a frame link module (FLM). Remote configuration of NICs may allow for multiple networks to be maintained in physical or logical isolation from each other. For example, a management data network may be maintained independently of an application data network. An FLM CPU may detect an appliance, validate compatibility for the appliance, a midplane, a PHY connection, etc. Commands from the FLM CPU may configure the independent networks. Independent networks may provide redundancy and segregation by data type. A controller area network (CAN) bus may deliver configuration commands to a NIC of an attached appliance. Air gap equivalent isolation of networks based on type of network may be achieved while maintaining redundancy of networks to address potential failure of individual components.

  • Publication number: 20200239672
    Abstract: The use of a block copolymer of the following structure. Wherein R and R1 may be the same or different and each independently represents an alkyl or aryl group, X may be hydrogen or C1 to C20 alkyl group which may be branched or linear and wherein the aromatic ring substituent joined to polymer B is positioned meta or para to the aromatic ring substituent joined to polymer A and, wherein polymer A is a polymer (or copolymer) of ethylene and polymer B is a polymer of monomers selected from vinyl acetate, C1-C9 acrylate esters, acrylic acid and mixtures thereof as an additive in polyethylene or polyethylene terephthalate to improve the adhesion between co-extruded layers of the polyethylene and the polyethylene terephthalate and laminated films derived from such use.

  • Patent number: 10528928
    Abstract: A payment terminal can have an integrated memory scanning system that has direct access to the memory of the payment terminal. By having direct access to the memory of the payment terminal, the memory scanning system can access information about the operating system and the applications of the payment terminal to determine if the operating system or applications are performing unauthorized or forbidden actions, which may indicate that a fraudulent transaction or tamper attempt is occurring at the payment terminal. The memory scanning system can determine if an unauthorized action is occurring by comparing the information regarding the operating system or applications obtained from the memory to test criteria stored by the memory scanning system. In addition, the memory scanning system can also have a direct communications with a payment server using information from a network stack in memory that can be accessed directly by the memory scanning system.
