  • Patent number: 10440011
    Abstract: Techniques for protecting passwords and/or password entry by a user are provided. User identification data for a user can be received from a remote computing device. An identity of the user can be determined based on the user identification data. A password for the user can be determined. A modified keyboard configuration associated with the user can be determined. A request can be transmitted to the remote computing device for the password for the user based on the modified keyboard configuration. A modified password from the remote computing device can be received. A converted password based on the modified password and the modified keyboard configuration can be determined. The converted password can be compared to the password for the user. The user can be authorized when the converted password matches the password for the user.

  • Publication number: 20190280723
    Abstract: In one example, the present disclosure describes a device, computer-readable medium, and method for reducing interference on the frequency modulation (FM) radio broadcast band from the G.fast protocol standard spectrum. For instance, in one example, a method includes delivering broadband service to a customer over a spectrum that overlaps with a frequency modulation radio broadcast band, and applying a notch filter to a target frequency of the frequency modulation radio broadcast band based on a profile that is customized for the customer, wherein the notch filter prevents the broadband service from using the target frequency during the delivering.

  • Patent number: 10380380
    Abstract: Techniques for providing a real-time service that protects personal data of clients from customer service agents are provided. Customer data that includes personal data indicative of sensitive information of a customer can be received from the customer. The personal data within the received customer data can be detected and a token that does not include the sensitive information of the customer can be generated. The personal data and the generated token can be stored along with data indicating a relationship between the token and the personal data. The personal data in the received customer data can be replaced by the token to form modified customer data. The modified customer data can be provided to a customer service representative. The token within the modified customer data can later be detected and associated with the personal data without revealing the personal data to the customer service representative.

  • Publication number: 20190193862
    Abstract: An example method includes: forming a conductive layer on at least a portion of a surface of a substrate, where the substrate comprises a composite material of an aerodynamic structure, and where the conductive layer is configured to provide a conductive path to conduct an electric current generated by a lightning strike to an electrically-grounded location; depositing an insulating layer on the conductive layer; removing one or more portions of the insulating layer to form respective gaps in the insulating layer and expose corresponding one or more portions of the conductive layer; and forming a resistive-heater layer on the insulating layer such that the resistive-heater layer fills the respective gaps in the insulating layer and contacts the corresponding one or more portions of the conductive layer, such that when electric power is provided to the conductive layer, the electric power is communicated to the resistive-heater layer thereby generating heat therefrom.

  • Publication number: 20190167909
    Abstract: A medication injector apparatus such as an injection pen. The injection pen includes a resettable, cartridge plunger drive assembly including an axially floating nut, a cartridge plunger engaging screw, and a drive clutch movable with the nut and which when rotated causes the screw to screw through the nut. When a cartridge assembly is mounted to the pen base, the floating nut and drive clutch are shifted proximally such that the drive clutch is in torque transmitting engagement with a rotatable drive member of the pen, such that rotation of that drive member results in drive screw advancement through the nut in the distal direction. When the cartridge assembly is not mounted to the pen base, the floating nut and drive clutch are biased distally to disengage the drive clutch from torque transmitting engagement with the rotatable drive member and to thereby allow the drive screw to be reset proximally through the nut to a position more retracted within the pen base.

  • Patent number: 10311577
    Abstract: Techniques to improve edge detection in images. Some techniques include logic to process image data into patched image data in accordance with a colorspace model where the patched image data includes color data in a plurality of patches and identify an image group corresponding to the patched image data. The logic may be further configured to select, based upon the image group, a colorspace transform mechanism being operative to transform the image data into transformed image data in accordance with another colorspace model, the other colorspace model having a higher likelihood than the colorspace model at edge detection for the image group. The logic may be further configured to apply the colorspace transform mechanism to the image data to generate the transformed image data in accordance with the other colorspace mode and then, apply an edge detection technique to the transformed image data. Other embodiments are described and claimed.

  • Patent number: 10304125
    Abstract: Creating color swatches associated with a product based on capturing an image of the product applied to a model substrate is described. In an example, an image of a product on a color display mechanism may be accessed. At least a portion of the color display mechanism may include a model substrate that is substantially similar to an intended application substrate for the product. A color swatch corresponding to the product may be determined based at least in part on the image. An enhanced image may be generated based at least partly on the color swatch. The enhanced image may be an image depicting the product applied to the intended application substrate in an environment of use that is modified to include a color associated with the color swatch in a region of the image corresponding to the product.

  • Publication number: 20180167866
    Abstract: A system and method for authentication of a communication device is disclosed. A system that incorporates teachings of the present disclosure may include, for example, an authentication system can have a controller element that receives from a communication device by way of a packet-switched network an authentication request comprising a first identification (ID) of a virtual gateway and a second ID of the communication device. The virtual gateway and at least one network element of the packet-switched network can be provisioned to have a physical association with each other such that other network elements of the packet-switched network deny services to the virtual gateway when the virtual gateway attempts to operate outside of said physical association. From said physical association and the aforementioned IDs the controller element can authenticate the communication device. Additional embodiments are disclosed.
