  • Publication number: 20210409428
    Abstract: The present disclosure concerns a computer-implemented method for forensically analysing and determining a network associated with a network security threat. The method comprises: obtaining details of a flagged network event comprising data associated with a network security threat, the network event being between a first dataset and a destination dataset; tracing the data associated with the network security threat from the first dataset to a further dataset, the tracing involving obtaining details of at least one past network event between the first dataset and the further dataset; comparing details of the further dataset to predefined criteria to identify whether the further dataset is an intermediate dataset or a source dataset from which the data originated and adding the details of the further dataset to a forensic report; outputting the forensic report.

  • Publication number: 20210187887
    Abstract: The tire building drum includes a rotatable drum having a center section and a first and second shoulder section. The center section is radially expandable, and the center section has a first and second shoulder, wherein the first and second shoulders are sloped. The method of building a tire includes the steps of applying an inner liner and a layer of ply to the drum and then a bead, locking the bead into position, applying an apex to each of the sloped shoulders, turning up the ply over the bead and the apex, and then applying a down ply over the ply ending.

  • Patent number: 11034112
    Abstract: A method of building a tire carcass is disclosed. The method of building the tire carcass includes the steps of applying one or more tire building components onto a drum forming a cylindrically shaped tire carcass. A first and second bead is placed onto a respective bead pocket. Then the carcass is inflated under low pressure into engagement with a belt and tread package while the bead pockets are moved axially inward. The beads are continued to move axially inward to the axial width of the widest breaker position. Then the outer lateral ends of the cylindrically shaped tire carcass are turned up about a respective first and second bead.
