  • Patent number: 10648664
    Abstract: A high-efficiency modulating gas furnace (herein ‘gas furnace’) includes a furnace controller. The gas furnace further includes a gas valve and at least one pressure switch that is coupled to the furnace controller. The electrical contacts of the at least one pressure switch are removed from a series electrical circuit with the gas valve such that the gas furnace operates without de-energizing the gas valve as soon as the electrical contacts of the at least one pressure switch are opened. Further, the furnace controller operates the induced draft blower at or close to a lowest RPM at which the electrical contacts of the at least one pressure switch can be kept closed, which is between a make point RPM at which the electrical contacts of the at least one pressure switch close and a break point RPM at which the electrical contacts of the at least one pressure switch open.

  • Publication number: 20200074336
    Abstract: An ensemble of detection techniques are used to identify code that presents intermediate levels of threat. For example, an ensemble of machine learning techniques may be used to evaluate suspiciousness based on binaries, file paths, behaviors, reputations, and so forth, and code may be sorted into safe, unsafe, intermediate, or any similar categories. By filtering and prioritizing intermediate threats with these tools, human threat intervention can advantageously be directed toward code samples and associated contexts most appropriate for non-automated responses.

  • Publication number: 20200074078
    Abstract: An automated system attempts to characterize code as safe or unsafe. For intermediate code samples not placed with sufficient confidence in either category, human-readable analysis is automatically generated to assist a human reviewer in reaching a final disposition. For example, a random forest over human-interpretable features may be created and used to identify suspicious features in a manner that is understandable to, and actionable by, a human reviewer. Similarly, a k-nearest neighbor algorithm may be used to identify similar samples of known safe and unsafe code based on a model for, e.g., a file path, a URL, an executable, and so forth. Similar code may then be displayed (with other information) to a user for evaluation in a user interface. This comparative information can improve the speed and accuracy of human interventions by providing richer context for human review of potential threats.

  • Patent number: 10498694
    Abstract: Knowledge associated with an address of a first IP type may be mapped to an address of a second IP type. In response to receiving, at a first IP endpoint type, a request from a client associated with a first and second IP address type, a first address of the first IP type associated with the client is recorded. A unique identification of the request is generated. The unique identifier and instructions to make a second request to a second IP endpoint type are sent to the client. The second request, that includes the unique identifier and corresponds to the second IP address type associated with the client, is received at the second endpoint. Both the first address and the second address are determined as corresponding to the client by determining that the unique identifier was used in both requests. The first address is mapped to the second address.
