  • Publication number: 20240193546
    Abstract: Techniques for generating policy compliance assets are disclosed. An example method includes receiving a body of training data comprising a policy document and policy action codes that correspond with the policy document, wherein the policy action codes comprise machine-readable computer code for implementing policies contained in the policy document. The method also includes processing the policy document to generate a structured dataset of policy actions. The method also includes generating, by a processing device, a trained model to create a mapping between the policy actions and the policy action codes. The method also includes receiving a new policy document from a client device and generating new policy action codes from the new policy document using the trained model. The method also includes sending the new policy action codes to the client device.

  • Publication number: 20240078103
    Abstract: This disclosure relates to building and finalizing an operating system (OS) image package in a way that allows for flexibility and customization of OS images while preventing certain runtime modifications after deployment of the OS image package on one or more target devices (e.g., embedded devices). For example, the systems described herein can build an OS image package based on information from an OS manifest that provides a declarative summary of a target OS. The systems described herein can further finalize the OS image package by performing one or more actions on the OS image package that prevent an end-user from performing various runtime modifications to the target OS after deployment of the OS image package. This finalization process provides an improved pipeline for implementing OS updates while providing safeguards against a variety of security risks associated with deploying OS image packages on a large scale.

  • Patent number: 11888324
    Abstract: A power management apparatus 20 comprises: a plurality of energy harvesting input channels 21-24; a first energy storage element connection for connecting to an energy storage element 32; an inductor connection 27; and a switching circuit 28. A controller 30 operates the switching circuit to transfer energy between the energy harvesting input channels 21-24 and the first energy storage element connection 25 by a sequence of energy transfer cycles. Each energy harvesting input channel 21-24 is allocated a plurality of the energy transfer cycles. The controller 30 determines operating parameters for operating the switching circuit 28 which transfer a maximum power from the electrical energy harvesting source connected to the energy harvesting input channel and a maximum power inductor utilisation factor. The controller 30 determines a set of adjusted operating parameters for sharing use of the inductor between the plurality of energy harvesting input channels 21-24.
