  • Patent number: 10785017
    Abstract: Techniques for mitigating timing attacks via dynamically scaled time dilation are provided. According to one set of embodiments, a computer system can enable time dilation with respect to a program, where the time dilation causes the program to observe a dilated view of time relative to real time. Then, while the time dilation is enabled, the computer system can track a count of application programming interface (API) calls or callbacks made by a program within each of a series of time buckets and, based on counts tracked for a range of recent time buckets, scale up or scale down a degree of the time dilation.

  • Patent number: 10773634
    Abstract: An array (166, 184, 194, 230, 256) of multiple light heads (170, 186, 194, 236) for a vehicle (100) has a primary Controller Area Network (CAN) serial data bus (108, 224) to carry first serial communications among spaced-apart CAN nodes (112, 118, 130, 136, 140, 154, 220, 260, 288) communicatively coupled thereto. The first serial communications initiate a flash sequence from the array via second serial communications provided to the multiple light heads communicatively coupled to a nested CAN serial data bus (180, 190, 200, 238). An array controller (130, 136, 140, 220, 260) segregates the nested CAN serial data bus from the primary CAN serial data bus while providing a communications bridge between nodes of the two buses. Accordingly, light heads on the nested bus provide self-identification and diagnostic information to other nodes such as a computer (288) configuration utility (290) featuring a graphical user interface (292).
