  • Publication number: 20200050756
    Abstract: Action instruction information includes action procedure information. The action procedure information defines an action procedure of a person including a plurality of action steps. Log information is information with respect to access to an object to be monitored and is acquired from a security apparatus for monitoring the object to be monitored. An action trace unit traces advance of the action step in the action procedure based on the action instruction information and the log information. A trace display unit associates the advance of the action step with access to the security apparatus based on the log information and the advance of the action step traced by the action trace unit and displays them on a display device.

  • Publication number: 20190362073
    Abstract: Provided is a more versatile technique that makes it possible to input dummy information in response to an attacker seeking to collect normal information that cannot be replaced with dummy information. In the present invention, a dummy information insertion device inserts dummy information into a second location that is determined using: first location information indicating a first location that contains normal information, from among all normal information in a computer, which cannot be replaced with other information; and insertion condition information that indicates conditions for determining the second location into which dummy information is to be inserted, with such dummy information resembling the normal information that cannot be replaced and not being present in the computer or in a local network connected to the computer.

  • Patent number: 9213446
    Abstract: This handwriting input device is equipped with an object to be coated 101, a detection means 102, and a display means 103. The object to be coated 101 is transparent or translucent. When a letter or a figure is written or drawn with a coating material, the detection means 102 detects a position in which the coating material attaches on the object to be coated 101. The display means 103 causes a visual change in accordance with the position in which attachment of the coating material is detected by the detection means 102, thereby displaying the letter or figure written or drawn with the coating material.

  • Patent number: 8078115
    Abstract: During a communication, the radio connection quality is measured so as to detect and store a generation time, an end time, and a continuation time of quality degradation. Upon a communication end, the end cause is judged. If the communication end is caused by a user operation, a causal connection between the communication end and the quality degradation is judged according to temporal relationship between the generation time of the quality degradation and the communication end time. That is, it is judged whether the communication end caused by the user operation is a phenomenon that the user has terminated the communication because of the communication quality degradation or other reason. Thus the communication end reasons are divided into at least two types and accumulated.

  • Publication number: 20100146454
    Abstract: The present invention is intended to provide a position-dependent information representation system which can allow persons other than evaluators to readily recognize at which positions the respective evaluators are evaluating information. Control device causes map/layout display means to display a map or a layout chart of a specified area in according to an instruction of the evaluator, and specifies an evaluation point specified by the evaluator in the display range of the map or the layout chart displayed according to an instruction of the evaluator. Information acquiring means acquires information data representing information of the evaluation point. Information representation section represents the information data.
