  • Publication number: 20220192261
    Abstract: An apparatus for an aerosol generating device comprises a first housing member for at least partly defining a chamber for containing a heater arrangement for heating an aerosol generating material; and a second housing member attached to the first housing member via an attachment. The first housing member and the second housing member define therebetween a passageway into the chamber. The passageway is configured to allow an electrical connecting member for connecting to the heater arrangement to extend through the passageway. The apparatus also comprises a sealing arrangement arranged to seal the passageway. The attachment between the first housing member and the second housing member is configured to hold the first housing member and the second housing member in a configuration which causes the sealing arrangement to seal the passageway.

  • Patent number: 11163542
    Abstract: A system and method for facilitating automatically adjusting a user interface display screen or portion thereof. An example method includes determining context information associated with data, wherein the data is maintained in accordance with a data model; generating a signal when the context information changes; and employing the signal to automatically configure one or more characteristics of a user interface architecture, resulting in an adjusted user interface architecture. The context information may include information specifying one or more attributes relating to the data model. Generating may further include analyzing the one or more attributes to determine a modification to be made to the user interface architecture and then rendering a user interface display screen based on a modified user interface architecture.

  • Patent number: 10592684
    Abstract: Systems and methods are provided for automatic operation detection on protected fields. A data model configuration can be used to specify which attributes of a data model used by a cloud-based application are protected by a data security provider monitoring communications between the application and a client device. A determination can be made automatically which operations of the cloud-based application are supported for protected fields. The cloud-based application can be configured to enable/disable certain features, such as validators, auto complete, search operators, etc. according to whether the attributes are protected fields.

  • Patent number: 10586061
    Abstract: Systems and methods are provided for federated search. Search results can be federated across cloud-based data stores having data accessible to applications hosted in the cloud and private data stores protected by a data security provider that manages communications between a private network and the cloud. A search query invoked by a client of a cloud-based application can be partitioned into search criteria applicable to the cloud-based data stores and search criteria applicable to the private data store. The cloud-based application can perform a search using the search criteria applicable to the cloud-based data stores and use results of a search against the private data store to federate the results.

  • Patent number: 10496837
    Abstract: Systems and methods are provided for supporting sharing the same table for protected and non-protected data columns. Different data object can be defined on the same database table. A discriminate flag can be defined to identify the data object to which a particular row belongs. The discriminate flag can be built into the data object so that rows belong to the data object are picked up during a query. Data protection can then be configured at the data object level so that rows that belong to the data object are subject to protection such as encryption or tokenization.

  • Patent number: 10198279
    Abstract: A system performs thread synchronization across layers of code that implement an application, including native code, system code, and code in a virtual machine (“VM”). The system makes a call by the native code to the system code; and sends a message by the system code to the code in the VM. The system then sends a first response by the code in the VM to the system code; and sends a second response by the system code to the native code, where each one of the native code, the system code, and the code in the VM implements wait and notify functionality for communication with other codes that implement the application.

  • Patent number: 10193953
    Abstract: Systems and methods are provided for self-describing configurations of cloud-based applications for data security providers monitoring communications between a client device and the applications. An application programming interface (API) can be provided that allows the data security provider to inspect entity objects used by the cloud-based application. Data entities can be marked to have protected fields. A token identifier can be generated by the data security provider and sent to the cloud-based application. The cloud-based application can insert the token identifier in communications between the application and a client device allowing the data security provider to protect sensitive data associated with the protected fields.

  • Patent number: 9891897
    Abstract: A system and method for facilitating characterizing data to enable dynamic generation of a user interface feature based on the data. An example method includes maintaining data in accordance with a data model accessible to webpage computer code, wherein the data model is adapted to be populated with data associated with one or more data attributes in the data model; and providing a signal, identifying a data attribute, from the data model to webpage computer code to facilitate dynamic construction of one or more user interface features characterizing a rendering of a webpage. Data in the data model is characterized by one or more data attributes, each of which is associated with an attribute definition. The example method may further include organizing one or more attribute definitions in the data model as computing objects containing characterizations of the one or more data attributes.
