  • Patent number: 10320995
    Abstract: A user causes a portable device (information processing device) to approach one PC (communication apparatus), and the PC transfers to the portable device by means of NFC unique connection information, such as a password, required for communication connection. Also, the user causes the portable device which has obtained the connection information to approach another PC. The portable device transfers connection information unique to the one PC to another PC by means of NFC. Another PC uses the obtained connection information to execute communication connection with the one PC. Thus, connection information required for communication connection is transferred among a plurality of PCs so as to easily execute communication connection among the plurality of PCs.

  • Patent number: 10303897
    Abstract: An anonymization system is equipped with a provisioning data manager, a provisioning rule manager, and an issuer. Upon receiving data that contains predetermined information and provisioning rules that correspond to the data and are used as conditions under which the data is anonymized, the provisioning data manager stores the data and provides the provisioning rules. The provisioning rule manager stores the provisioning rules provided by the provisioning data manager. When a request is made to issue the anonymized data, that is, the data that has been anonymized, if the issuance request is in accord with the provisioning rules stored in the provisioning rule manager, the issuer acquires the data corresponding to the provisioning rules from the provisioning data manager, issues the anonymized data by anonymizing the acquired data, and provides the anonymized data.

  • Patent number: 10298135
    Abstract: A device and method for controlling a power supply. The method includes: monitoring a feedback signal of a feedback terminal; determining whether the feedback signal of the feedback terminal is not a pulse signal; and terminating an on/off operation of a switching element when the feedback signal of the feedback terminal is not a pulse signal. Therefore, an abnormal status of the device can be correctly detected with a simple structure when the feedback terminal is open or is shorted with other terminals, while an error operation and a damage of the device can be avoided.
