  • Patent number: 11394661
    Abstract: Techniques are described for using compositional reasoning techniques to perform role reachability analyses relative to collections of user accounts and roles of a cloud provider network. Delegated role-based resource management generally is a method for controlling access to resources in cloud provider networks and other distributed systems. Many cloud provider networks, for example, implement identity and access management subsystems using this approach, where the concept of “roles” is used to specify which resources can be accessed by people, software, or (recursively) by other roles. An abstraction of the role reachability analysis is provided that can be used as input to a model-checking application to reason about such role reachability questions (e.g., which roles of an organization are reachable from other roles).

  • Patent number: 9250114
    Abstract: Techniques for calibrating measuring devices are provided. A universal serial bus (USB) drive is inserted into a USB port on a device of a checkout system. A key in the USB drive initiates a calibration sequence on one or more weighing devices (measuring devices) of the checkout system. Audit information is captured during the calibration and usage of the weighing devices. When a command is recognized to communicate the audit information, the audit information is audibly communicated from speakers associated with the checkout system.

  • Patent number: 7280479
    Abstract: A cable modem termination system includes a data over cable service interface specification (DOCSIS) subsystem that manages a flow associated with a gate and a gate manager (GM) that manages a state of the gate. When the flow is admitted by the DOCSIS subsystem, the DOCSIS subsystem signals to the GM to transition the state of the gate to a reserved state. The GM transitions the state of the gate to the reserved state when the DOCSIS subsystem signals to the GM to transition the state of the gate to the reserved state. When the flow is activated by the DOCSIS subsystem, the DOCSIS subsystem signals to the GM to transition the state of the gate to a committed state. The GM transitions the state of the gate to the committed state when the DOCSIS subsystem signals to the GM to transition the state of the gate to the committed state.

  • Publication number: 20050097192
    Abstract: A system of retrieving large amounts of configuration data in a communication system. In one embodiment, a method is disclosed that comprises initiating a request for configuration data from a user interface. Sending the configuration request to a data source. Placing the configuration data into a data file in a user interface format at the data source and sending the data file to the user interface.

  • Publication number: 20050078689
    Abstract: An access switch includes a cable modem termination system with a gate manager executing thereon and a route server, in communication with the cable modem termination system, that includes a common open policy service client executing on the route server. The switch further includes a network interface module, in communication with the cable modem termination system and the route server, that, when the network interface module is coupled to a network, communicates common open policy service messages between the common open policy service client and a call management server included in the network. When a first common open policy service message that includes a gate command is received by the common open policy service client, the common open policy service client sends a second message derived from the first common open policy service message to the gate manager. The gate manager receives the second message and processes the gate command.

  • Patent number: 6561426
    Abstract: A system for detecting and decoding a supplemental barcode accompanying a primary barcode. A supplemental barcode is affixed to a product in the vicinity of a primary barcode. A scanner in a barcode reading system, such as a point of sale system, scans for a primary barcode. Upon detection of a primary barcode, the system inserts a delay while attempting to detect a supplemental barcode. Upon detection of a secondary barcode, the primary and supplemental barcode information is processed, for example by sending the information to a terminal connected to the scanner. Upon expiration of the delay without detection of a supplemental barcode, the primary barcode information is processed.

  • Publication number: 20030065809
    Abstract: A method for scheduling downstream transmissions in a cable modem termination system is provided. The method includes selecting a queue based on its priority level and a state of the queue. When the selected queue has data, the method schedules transmission of a packet of data for the selected queue. When a packet is scheduled for the selected queue, the method determines whether higher priority queues have data before scheduling additional transmissions.
