  • Patent number: 7921293
    Abstract: An apparatus and method for unilaterally loading a secure operating system within a multiprocessor environment are described. The method includes disregarding a received load secure region instruction when a currently active load secure region operation is detected. Otherwise, a memory protection element is directed, in response to the received load secure region instruction, to form a secure memory environment. Once directed, unauthorized read/write access to one or more protected memory regions are prohibited. Finally, a cryptographic hash value of the one or more protected memory regions is stored within a digest information repository as a secure software identification value. Once stored, outside agents may request access to a digitally signed software identification value to establish security verification of secure software within the secure memory environment.

  • Patent number: 7895816
    Abstract: An apparatus for combines for the collection of threshed material discharged from the combine and automatically dumping the collected material when a predetermined weight of material is accumulated. The apparatus includes a threshed material collector attached to the combine for rotation about a horizontal axis that is closer to a forward end of the collector than a rearward end of the collector. The collector includes a plurality of horizontally spaced tines extending in a rearward direction and position to collect material discharged from the combine. A counter weight is attached to the collector for controlling the amount of material collected before the collector rotates under the weight of the collected material to a dumping position where the collected material is removed from the collector.

  • Publication number: 20100281255
    Abstract: In one embodiment of the present invention, a method includes verifying a master processor of a system; validating a trusted agent with the master processor if the master processor is verified; and launching the trusted agent on a plurality of processors of the system if the trusted agent is validated. After execution of such a trusted agent, a secure kernel may then be launched, in certain embodiments. The system may be a multiprocessor server system having a partially or fully connected topology with arbitrary point-to-point interconnects, for example.

  • Patent number: 7792303
    Abstract: Delivering a Direct Proof private key to a device installed in a client computer system in the field may be accomplished in a secure manner without requiring significant non-volatile storage in the device. A unique pseudo-random value is generated and stored in the device at manufacturing time. The pseudo-random value is used to generate a symmetric key for encrypting a data structure holding a Direct Proof private key and a private key digest associated with the device. The resulting-encrypted data structure is stored on a removable storage medium (such as a CD), and distributed to the owner of the client computer system. When the device is initialized on the client computer system, the system checks if a localized encrypted data structure is present in the system. If not, the system obtains the associated encrypted data structure from the removable storage medium.

  • Patent number: 7779239
    Abstract: A processor includes a feature control unit to enable or disable one or more processor features individually in response to a user selectable setting. The feature control unit is adapted to disable the processor feature(s) if the user setting has not been updated in accordance with an input regardless of the value of the user setting prior to the update and to enable or disable the processor feature(s) in accordance with the updated user setting after it has been updated. The feature control unit may also include a lock unit to prevent changes to the updated user setting and a software feature selection unit to enable or disable processor features in response to a software feature selection setting and, optionally, only enable or disable processor features whose corresponding updated user setting is user enabled. The feature control unit may also include mechanisms to detect illegal feature selection conditions.

The pseudo-random value is used to generate a symmetric key for encrypting a data structure holding a Direct Proof private key and a private key digest associated with the device.

When the device is initialized on the client computer system, the system checks if a localized encrypted data structure is present in the system. If not, the system obtains the associated encrypted data structure from the protected on-line server using a secure protocol.

  • Publication number: 20100100649
    Abstract: A method and apparatus is described herein for supporting direct memory accesses between peer I/O devices. It is determined whether a guest physical address (GPA) referenced by an access generated from an I/O device, is within a range of GPAs associated with local I/O devices based at least in part on a GPA base and a GPA window size. If the GPA is within the window, then the GPA is translated to an HPA based at least in part on a base HPA associated with a local device and then forwarded to that local device. However, if the GPA is not within the window, then the access is forwarded upstream.
