  • Publication number: 20220116229
    Abstract: A method for representing certificate expiration includes obtaining, from a root certificate authority, a root digital certificate and generating a chain of intermediate certificate authorities. Each intermediate certificate authority includes a respective intermediate certificate digitally signed by the intermediate certificate authority that is immediately higher in the chain and a respective validation time period indicating a range of times when the intermediate certificate authority is permitted to digitally sign certificates. The respective validation time period includes the validation time period of each intermediate certificate authority that is lower in the chain. The method includes generating a certificate revocation list and generating, from the lowest intermediate certificate authority in the chain, a plurality of end entity certificates.

  • Patent number: 10171564
    Abstract: A cloud-based system for integration of agricultural data with geolocation-based agricultural operations is provided. The system receives agricultural-related data associated with a given geographic area and transforms the received data into an analysis-ready format. The system processes the received data through one or more algorithms to determine at least one operation to be performed within the given geographic area. The system generates a set of instructions for execution of the at least one operation within the given geographic area as a function of geolocation, where the instructions are coded for direct use by a controller of a specified type of agricultural equipment. The system transmits the instructions over a wireless communication channel to the controller, where the instructions cause the controller to direct operation of the agricultural equipment to perform the at least one operation within the given geographic area as a function of geolocation in an automated manner.

  • Patent number: 9813512
    Abstract: A data receiving module receives sampled agricultural-related data associated with a given geographic area. An analysis module processes the received sampled agricultural-related data to generate a sub-sampled raster of agricultural-related data over the given geographic area. The analysis module processes the sub-sampled raster of agricultural-related data to generate a final output raster of agricultural-related data over the given geographic area. The final output raster has a higher resolution than the sub-sampled raster. A geospatial data map generation module generates image data that when used to control a display of a remote subscriber computing device causes the display to show a geospatial data map based on the final output raster of agricultural-related data over the given geographic area. A communication module transmits instructions including the generated image data to the remote subscriber computing device to cause processing of the image data to display the geospatial data map on the display.

  • Publication number: 20170104728
    Abstract: A data acquisition platform in which self-configuring devices communicate with a database through an intermediate wireless access point. The database may store data acquired by and uploaded from self-configuring devices and store information that may be downloaded to self-configuring devices and used to self-configure. In a fleet management embodiment, self-configuring devices include OBD data capture devices installed in a motor vehicle that is part of an entity's vehicle fleet. The platform may support an auto-connect feature in which wireless network access information needed by self-configuring devices to login to a wireless LAN is encrypted and wirelessly broadcasted by the access point. The network identifier may comply with formatting protocol that enables self-configuring devices to recognize encrypted network identifiers. In WiFi embodiments, the network identifier may be an encrypted SSID or an SSID that includes unencrypted and encrypted parts.

  • Patent number: 8069021
    Abstract: System(s) and method(s) facilitate a distributed simulation of an industrial control system. A model of the industrial control system is generated and computing resources are scheduled for simulating portions of a simulation according to the model. Computing resources are scheduled to mitigate computational bottlenecks in the simulation and synchronize portions of the simulation deployed in disparate computing resources. Sub-processes of a control process can be simulated in dedicated computing resources as a part of a distributed simulation of the control process. Execution time of one or more portions of a distributed simulation can be increased or slowed down to synchronize said portions.

  • Patent number: 7650267
    Abstract: A simulation system includes a receiver component that receives multiple replications of a simulation scenario. The simulation scenario includes a plurality of interacting components representing devices and elements of the real-world system or abstract process to be simulated. Each of the interacting components has one or more numerical parameters associated therewith, to represent an operational parameter of the system device. During the execution of the replications, each replication operates with a randomness factor that modifies a respective numerical parameter, in accordance with the sorts of variations that can be expected in the actual system. An assignment component is included that assigns a subset of the replications to multiple processors such that a processor within the multiple processors executes at least one replication.
