  • Publication number: 20190316826
    Abstract: A refrigerator appliance includes a cabinet that defines a chilled chamber including a fresh food portion a freezer portion. A door is rotatably mounted to the cabinet at a front portion of the chilled chamber. The door rotates between a closed position where the door sealingly encloses the fresh food portion and the freezer portion of the chilled chamber and an open position to permit access to the fresh food portion and the freezer portion of the chilled chamber. The door also includes an outer casing comprising a thermally insulated wall that defines a freezer chamber and a front panel rotatably mounted to the outer casing of the door such that the front panel of the door permits access to the freezer chamber.

  • Patent number: 10364995
    Abstract: Ventilating units that include a recovery wheel, a supply air outlet from the wheel, an outdoor air supply fan that moves outdoor air through the recovery wheel, an economizer damper that opens to bring outdoor air directly into the supply air outlet, and an exhaust air discharge fan that moves exhaust air through the recovery wheel and to outdoors; HVAC units that include air conditioning with an air handler supply fan, a recovery wheel, an economizer section, an outdoor air supply fan, and controls; and methods of controlling airflow in an HVAC unit that include controlling an economizer damper based on outdoor and return air temperature and enthalpy or dew point. Some ventilating units connect to a packaged air handler and other ventilating units include the air handler, cooling coil, and air handler supply fan. Some embodiments include another damper that opens to bypass the recovery wheel for power exhaust.

  • Publication number: 20190207752
    Abstract: A method of secure hash table implementation includes performing a secret key exchange between a server enclave of a server device and a client enclave of a client device and establishing an encrypted channel between the server enclave and the client enclave using the exchanged secret keys. The method includes generating a random key for a keyed hash function or a pseudo random function (PRF) and communicating the random key to the client enclave. The method includes receiving hashes of input data at the server enclave. The method includes building a hash table based on key-value pairs included in the received hashes. The method includes receiving a hash table query that includes keys. The method includes retrieving values that correspond to the keys. The method includes returning the retrieved values that correspond to the keys or a null if a value has not been inserted into the hash table for one of the keys.

  • Publication number: 20180300502
    Abstract: An anonymization system may include a merger to merge a public database and a private database to create a merged database. The merged database may include multiple blank entries and multiple initial values associated with multiple user identifiers. The anonymization system may include a value generator to fill values for the blank entries via a machine learning algorithm and based on the initial values to create a filled database including the initial values and the fill values. The anonymization system may include a perturber to perturb one or more of the initial values or the fill values of the filled database to create a perturbed database. The anonymization system may include a releaser to release at least a portion of the perturbed database.

  • Publication number: 20120143778
    Abstract: The complexity of regulations in healthcare, financial services, and other industries makes it difficult for enterprises to design and deploy effective compliance systems. The present invention supports compliance by using formalized portions of applicable laws to regulate business processes that use information systems. An embodiment of the present invention uses a stratified fragment of Prolog with limited use of negation to formalize a portion of the US Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). An embodiment of the invention provides for deployment in a prototypical hospital that implements a Web portal messaging system.

  • Patent number: 7870610
    Abstract: Various approaches for detecting unauthorized actions on a computing platform are disclosed. In one approach, a memory region is designated as tainted if data is received from an untrusted source (such as the network) and written to that region. Thereafter, destination regions may be designated as tainted based on an operation having source and destination parameters in which at least a portion of an address range of the source overlaps an address range of a tainted memory region, and data from the source is used to update the destination. If an argument in an invocation of a function call references a tainted memory region, the call is determined to be unauthorized and data is output indicative of the unauthorized call.
