  • Patent number: 10893033
    Abstract: Techniques are disclosed relating to a computer system accessing a client credential set to authenticate with a destination computer system. A computer system may, subsequent to receiving an indication to make available an application for a particular user, retrieve configuration data specifying a reference to a key value. The computer system may maintain a data object that includes a client credential set for the particular user. In response to an occurrence of an event associated with the application, the computer system may access the client credential set of the particular user from the data object using the key value and an indication of the particular user. The computer system may then send a request including the client credential set to a destination computer system for authentication with the destination computer system and receive a response indicating whether the computer system has been authenticated.

  • Patent number: 10857600
    Abstract: Embodiments herein provide drill hole location transfer between remote components. One embodiment is an apparatus for replicating drill holes of a first workpiece on a second workpiece remotely located from the first workpiece. The apparatus includes an interface to receive coordinate data of first alignment pins installed to first template holes of a first drill plate, and a receptacle to receive a second drill plate having second template holes that match a pattern of the first templates holes of the first drill plate. A pin setting device moves a reference member in a plane over the receptacle, and positions the reference member with respect to the second drill plate based on the coordinate data of the first alignment pins, thus indicating locations within the second template holes to position drill bushings for replicating the first holes of the first workpiece on the second workpiece.
