  • Publication number: 20240048493
    Abstract: Mobile management method, system and client. The method includes receiving a DNS query for a host name from an application on a client; retrieving reputation data associated with the host name from a local cache on the client; determining a policy for the host name, which is associated with the host name and the reputation data associated with the host name; based on the determined policy for the host name, blocking attempted network flows to a host corresponding to the host name; sending at least attempted network flow metadata related to the blocked attempted network flows to a collector on the client; and transmitting the attempted network flow metadata in the collector to a VPN server pool via a VPN tunnel.

  • Patent number: 11833557
    Abstract: A device cleaning system cycles a fluid by a clogged or non-functioning device to remove the substances that are built-up on it. The fluid could be heated to facilitate removal and it is considered of importance to use a fluid that is safe environmentally. A clean and functioning verification device is run in the system to compare readings from the non-functioning device. The system is intended to run until the provide similar readings.

  • Publication number: 20200027296
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and devices are described that provide for a voter-verified digital voting audit trail. One or more votes cast by a voter may be identified at a voting system, and a digital image that lists the identified votes may be generated. The digital image may be stored in a memory and displayed to the voter. The voter may be prompted to provide a voter verification of the displayed votes. Upon receiving the verification from the voter, the voter verification of the digital image containing the votes may be stored to provide a voter-verified digital audit trail. A cast vote record is generated based on the verified votes, and linked to the stored digital image and voter verification. The cast vote record may be provided to a tabulation system that may tabulate votes from multiple voters.

  • Patent number: 9870666
    Abstract: A system, method and computer program for tabulating votes and creating an audit trail is provided. A ballot processing device may include a paper feed mechanism, a computer, a ballot processing application loaded on the computer, and a digital scanning device linked to the computer. The ballot processing application may process the digital image to establish a series of processing results definning one or more voting results for the paper ballot, and also an audit trail. The ballot processing application may process the digital image to define the voting results based on criteria established by election officials, including ambiguous mark criteria. The audit trail enables election officials to verify that particular paper ballots have been processed correctly in accordance with these criteria.

  • Publication number: 20170286870
    Abstract: A machine learning based procurement system comprises a machine learning classifier to classify bids. The procurement system determines a price risk score and a supplier risk score for each of the bids based on the classifications, and determines if any of the bids are associated with a high-risk procurement based on comparing the price risk score and the supplier risk score to the respective threshold. The procurement system includes a graphical user interface that can display bid evaluation links, which are accessible to provide information explaining high-risk procurements.

  • Patent number: 9202113
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and devices are described for adjudicating votes made on voter-marked paper ballots. Voter-marked paper ballots may be scanned to obtain optical image data of the voter-marked paper ballots. The optical image may be analyzed to determine the votes contained in the ballot for tabulation purposes. One or more votes on the ballot may be identified as requiring adjudication by an election official. Adjudication information, according to various embodiments, is appended to the optical images of the voter-marked paper ballots such that the image of the ballot and the image of the adjudication information may be viewed in an optical image. The optical image may be stored in a file format that allows the ballot image and the appended adjudication information to be viewed using readily available image viewers.
