  • Patent number: 10151691
    Abstract: To provide a gas sensor kit and a gas measurement system in which a problem in arrangement of a signal processor and an atmospheric pressure sensor at the time of measuring a gas is solved. A gas sensor kit includes a sensor and a connector. The connector includes an atmospheric pressure sensor measuring an atmospheric pressure and a signal processor. The signal processor receives a measurement signal indicating a transmitted light quantity of a target gas from the sensor and obtains a measurement value of a concentration or a partial pressure of the target gas based on the measurement signal. The signal processor corrects the measurement value of the concentration or the partial pressure of the target gas by using an atmospheric pressure value measured by the atmospheric pressure sensor.

  • Publication number: 20180288000
    Abstract: Provided is an on-board communication system that can prevent a communication line from being occupied due to repetitive transmission of an unauthorized message. The on-board communication system includes a plurality of interconnected ECUs and a monitoring device including: a determination processing unit to determine whether a message is an authorized message; a discard processing unit to perform processing for discarding an unauthorized message; a storage unit to store the ID of the discarded message; and a notification processing unit to perform processing for outputting, an ACK signal indicating that the reception of the message is complete. The discard processing unit does not discard a message with the same ID as that stored in the storage unit. Each of the ECUs stores the ID added to a message subjected to the discard processing, and prohibits processing of a message with the same ID as that stored in the storage unit.

  • Publication number: 20170374084
    Abstract: A system and method are provided for detecting a botnet in a network based on traffic flow, daisy chained mechanism and white-list generation mechanism. The system and method uses the known malicious components in a botnet such as IP address, domain name and URL, to be the root of a daisy chain and creates a network graph based on given traffic flow data such as NetFlow data, DNS cache data, DNS sinkhole data, DDoS data and Attack log data in threat sensors. The system and method iteratively detects new malicious factors by tracing that network graph. The system and method also introduces a technique to create a white list which is used in the daisy chain to reduce false positive.
