  • Publication number: 20090222888
    Abstract: A secure (e.g., HTTPS) connection is established between a client and a server. Communication over the connection may utilize an application (e.g., a Web browser) that is not part of the client's trusted computing base. A password is sent from the client to the server over the connection such that the clear text password is unavailable to the application. For example, the password can be encrypted and inserted directly into the HTTPS stream from the client's trusted computing base.

  • Publication number: 20070199763
    Abstract: In a rigid drive axle for a vehicle comprising an axle beam provided with a differential housing, at least two tubular axle sections extending in opposite directions from the differential housing and spring support brackets projecting laterally from the axle tube sections, the spring support brackets are integral parts of the axle tube sections facilitating adaptation to various automotive vehicles and forming a relatively low-weight structure which increases the ride comfort and driving safety and also provides for minimal tire wear.

  • Publication number: 20070186112
    Abstract: Systems and methods are described that control attempts made by an application to access data. In one embodiment, the application is associated with a security token that includes an application ID. In operation, the system receives a request, initiated by the application, for access to the data. The system is configured to evaluate the request for access based in part on comparison of the security token and a listing of approved application IDs associated with the data.

  • Publication number: 20070101148
    Abstract: Techniques are described herein for securely prompting a user to confirm sensitive operations, input sensitive information or the like. The techniques include receiving or intercepting calls from applications to prompting routines. When a call to a prompting routine is received or intercepted a hint may be provided to the user to switch to a secure desktop. When the user switches from the user desktop to the secure desktop the particular prompt is displayed. The input to the prompt is received on the secure desktop and verified to have been provided by the user. The user input or a representation of the input is then returned to the application running on the user desktop. Using these techniques, interception of prompting messages by malware does not result in sensitive information being revealed. Furthermore, spoofing of new messages by malware does not lead to the dismissal of critical prompting.

  • Publication number: 20070005961
    Abstract: An operating system for a computing device has a first session for a user that includes a first base process that has a first privileges token attached thereto. The first privileges token includes substantially a full set of privileges of the user on the operating system. The operating system also has a second session for the user that includes a second base process that has a second privileges token attached thereto. The second privileges token is derived from the first privileges token and includes only a minimum set of privileges of the user on the operating system. Thus, the second, limited token does not have all privileges associated with the first, full token but instead has a limited set of privileges and not extra privileges that could be employed to take actions that would be harmful, deceptive, or malicious.

  • Publication number: 20060242427
    Abstract: Systems and/or methods are described that enable a credential interface. These systems and/or methods may build a credential user interface enabling a user to choose between multiple credentials and submit an authenticator for a chosen credential. These systems and/or methods may also gather information about arbitrary credentials and build a user interface for submission of authenticators for these arbitrary credentials.

  • Publication number: 20060059529
    Abstract: Systems and methods are described for providing security through sessions. In an implementation, a method includes initiating a session, by an operating system, in which operating system services are executable and initiating another session, by the operating system, in which a user-interactive application is executable.

  • Publication number: 20050188210
    Abstract: A system and method facilitating secure credential management is provided. An aspect of the present invention provides for a credential management system including a credential user interface component, a trusted proxy component and a secure user interface component. The system can facilitate the secure acquisition, storage and/or application of credential(s) for a user (e.g., when accessing a particular resource) through a secure, isolated environment. For example, the system can be a core building block for operating system component(s) and/or application(s) that handle credential(s) in a secure manner.

  • Publication number: 20050160041
    Abstract: Methods and apparatuses are provided for use with smartcards or other like shared computing resources. One or more root certificates are stored on a smartcard. The root certificates can be selectively copied to a certificate store or other like mechanism of an operatively coupled computing or like device and available to support certificate and other trust related processes of the device. When the smartcard is no longer operatively available to the device, the root certificates are no longer available to support such certificate and other trust related processes of the device.

  • Publication number: 20050154672
    Abstract: Methods and apparatuses are provided for use with smartcards or other like shared computing resources. By selectively granting exclusive use to a requesting entity for a period of time, performance is improved by reducing unnecessary redundant overhead data, communication, storage and/or processing for an applicable series of transactions associated with a granted access request operation.

  • Publication number: 20050149476
    Abstract: Methods and apparatuses are provided for use with smartcards or other like shared computing resources. A global smartcard cache is maintained on one or more computers to reduce the burden on the smartcard. The global smartcard cache data is associated with a freshness indicator that is compared to the current freshness indicator from the smartcard to verify that the cached item data is current.

  • Publication number: 20050091213
    Abstract: A credential is translated with one of different credential provider modules each translating a corresponding different type of credential into a common protocol. The translated credential is communicated through an API to a logon UI module to an operating system (OS) of a local machine. An OS logon module is called by the logon UI module to authenticate the translated credential against a credential database. A user identified by the translated credential is logged on to access the local machine when the authentication is successful. The credential can also be used with a selection received from the logon UI module via a corresponding one of different pre-log access provider (PLAP) modules that each communicate with the API. The API establishes a network session with an access service specified by the selected PLAP module when the credential is authenticated with the credential database.

  • Patent number: 6665924
    Abstract: A method and apparatus for securing a rotor to a drive cone in a centrifuge includes positioning a rotor upon a drive cone and providing a nut movable in an axial direction in the drive cone. A screw passing through a region of the rotor engages the nut, and a spring is located between a surface of the nut and a surface of the drive cone. By tightening the screw into the nut, the nut moves in an axial direction to compress the spring between the surface of the nut and the surface of the drive cone. The arrangement of the screw, nut, and spring prevents a loosening of the screw from the nut during operation of the centrifuge.
