  • Patent number: 9191400
    Abstract: In a cyphertext (CT) network, a method for detecting anomalies comprising analyzing cyphertext data flows within the CT network where the CT network includes one or more encryption devices for encrypting plaintext data packets into cyphertext data packets such that the cyphertext data flows are directed to one or more destination devices. The cyphertext data includes multiple CT data packets and each CT data packet includes header information where each header includes source address information, destination address information and differentiated service code point (DSCP) information representative of traffic class information. The method further includes analyzing the traffic class information of each header, including using maximum entropy estimation for detecting one or more anomalies within the traffic class distribution of each flow based on the header information for that traffic class.

  • Patent number: 5899692
    Abstract: A dental syringe tip handpiece assembly includes a clear, plastic syringe tip mounted in an adaptor for connection to the handpiece. On the interior of the adaptor at a location adjacent the end of the syringe tip, a source of light, preferably a fiberoptic ringlight, is provided. Light from the light source will be transmitted down the length of the syringe tip and emitted from the end thereof. By positioning the end of the syringe tip in the patient's oral cavity, the dentist can provide illumination in the oral cavity so that various dental functions can be more easily and accurately performed. The source of light may also be a light bulb positioned at the rear of the adaptor. The adaptor is made from clear, or at least translucent, material so that light from the light bulb will be transmitted through the adaptor and then into the syringe tip. A special handpiece body formed of a handpiece inner unit and an outer cover is provided to receive the adaptor and syringe tip assembly.

  • Patent number: 5489205
    Abstract: A syringe tip is locked into a three-way dental handpiece body means of a syringe tip locking assembly that screws into a threaded receiver in the body of the handpiece. The locking assembly comprises an adaptor that has a central tapered male member that receives one end of the syringe tip, a gripping member that snaps over a raised lip on the end of the adaptor body and a locking cap that screws onto the adaptor and over the gripping member. The gripping member includes a plurality of gripping fingers that engage the syringe tip and the locking cap effects the tightening of the gripping fingers into the syringe tip. The locking assembly both applies a positive gripping action to the syringe tip and also pulls the syringe tip onto the tapered male member to securely hold the syringe tip in the adaptor during use by the dentist. The gripping member is captivated onto the raised lip of the adaptor to prevent inadvertent separation of the pieces.

  • Patent number: 5460381
    Abstract: A game apparatus wherein players move along a playing path and make various electrical interconnections along the way. At any one given time only one space on the playing field contains an open switch coupled to a noise generating device. If a player lands on the selected space and closes the switch, a noise will sound and the player gets to keep toy money laid out on the playing field. A selection control unit randomly changes the position of the open switch on the game board each time it is found. As a result, a player never knows whether or not he or she is moving toward or away from the open switch. The selection control unit also eliminates previously used spaces from the random selection process. As such, the players know that once a space has been used and the money for that space has been taken, that space will not be selected again.

  • Patent number: 5342195
    Abstract: Various adaptors are used for securing a replaceable syringe tip in operative relationship to a handpiece body. The syringe tip is mounted on a tapered male connector set in the hollow interior of the adaptor. O ring seals and a metal flange member are used to prevent the leakage of air or water passing from the handpiece into the interior of the adaptor and then into the syringe tip. A captivated thumb nut is utilized to prevent the thumb nut from accidently disengaging completely from the adaptor. When the thumb nut is loosened to replace a syringe tip, the thumb nut will remain captivated on the adapter, only loosening enough to allow removal and insertion of a syringe tip.
