  • Patent number: 10027489
    Abstract: An architecture for application of digital rights management to industrial automation devices including programmable logic controllers (PLCs), I/O devices, and communication adapters is provided. Digital rights management involves a set of technologies for controlling and managing access to device objects and/or programs such as ladder logic programs. Access to automation device objects and/or programs can be managed by downloading rules of use that define user privileges with respect to automation devices and utilizing digital certificates, among other things, to verify the identity of a user desiring to interact with device programs, for example. The architecture can provide for secure transmission of messages to and amongst automation devices utilizing public key cryptography associated with digital certificates.

  • Patent number: 9720782
    Abstract: Authenticating a backup image stored on a storage device prior to restoring the backup image. A value such as a hash value is generated based on the image to be preserved. The value is stored on the storage device in a first area accessible for writing only when the computing device is in an update mode. The first area becomes read-only when the computing device is in an operating system mode. The image is stored on the storage device in a second area accessible for writing when the computing device is in the update mode or the operating system mode. When attempting to restore the image from the second area, the value from the first area is compared to another value generated at the time of the restoration for validation.

  • Patent number: 9467347
    Abstract: The present invention relates to systems and methods that employ scalable vector graphics (SVG) to view and effectuate an industrial device from a remote Web interface. The systems and methods can be utilized to retrieve an SVG XML markup language-based file associated with the device and execute the SVG file via basic ASCII drawing commands. Thus, a faceplate of an industrial device and/or other device-related information can be represented via SVG syntax and stored with the device. A user can employ a Web browser from a remote location (e.g., via a Web client) to retrieve the SVG file, wherein the file can be loaded within the Web browser and/or an open source software package. The SVG file can be executed to render an interactive graphical faceplate that can depict LEDs, alphanumeric displays, inputs/output, etc., trending mechanisms (e.g., graphs, charts, etc.), and capabilities to load parameters.

  • Publication number: 20160156628
    Abstract: Embodiments enable content sharing using event notifications that include a global identifier and a private identifier. The event notifications are sent to potential participants to an event. Potential participants that accept the event notification or otherwise request to join the event use the private identifier to submit content to a content sharing service. Based at least on the private identifiers associated with event participants, the content from event participants is selectively shared among the other event participants.

  • Patent number: 9122554
    Abstract: A pervasive service provides device specific updates. A proxy device receives an update request from a user device located proximate to the proxy device. The update request includes at least a user device identifier and a user device state. Update data associated with the user device identifier and the user device state is accessed. The proxy device transmits the device-specific update data to the user device. In some embodiments, the proxy device is a mobile device that detects or otherwise encounters a plurality of the user devices and provides device-specific updates thereto.

  • Patent number: 8402101
    Abstract: The subject invention provides reliable messaging with and within a control environment. The systems and methods utilize a message broker that facilitates message exchange. The message broker can be located within an industrial controller, as a dedicated entity within a control environment and/or an entity external to the control environment. Messages transmitted from an industrial controller and/or the external entity can be routed through the message broker prior to reaching a destination, wherein the message can be stored in the message broker and subsequently obtained by a recipient. The message broker decouples the message sender (e.g., an industrial controller, an external entity . . . ) from the message recipient (e.g., an industrial controller, an external entity . . . ) such that messages can be successfully transmitted (to the message broker) regardless of a state of the recipient, and messages can be retrieved (from the message broker) regardless of a state of the sender.
