  • Publication number: 20240171528
    Abstract: An information processing method for controlling access to a computer resource includes capturing an operation request for the computer resource from a process or the operating system before a computer resource is accessed, and selecting a policy suitable for a state of a computer from a plurality of policies with access privilege allowed for each one of a plurality of types of work defined as a policy for each work. The method also includes determining whether or not there is access privilege for a computer resource specified by the operation request captured in the capturing on a basis of the policy selected in the selecting, and executing processing to send the operation request as is to the operating system if a result of the determining is that there is an access privilege and send the result back to a request source process.

  • Patent number: 11468184
    Abstract: A data protection system includes a data storage apparatus and an information processing apparatus. In the information processing apparatus, a redirection processing apparatus sets a personal storage area corresponding to a user to an accessible state according to a redirection policy. Furthermore, a write control unit controls data writing permission/prohibition for each storage area according to a write management policy. In particular, the write control unit prohibits data writing to a local storage unit except for the storage area to be used to access the personal storage area. With this, the data does not remain in the information processing apparatus, thereby preventing data leakage from the information processing apparatus.

  • Patent number: 9330712
    Abstract: In a data conversion auxiliary module which is at a higher level than a file system in a disk management hierarchy, data stored in a storage medium, which becomes an object, is successively accessed. Then, a data conversion module captures a sector-unit access request to a device driver from the file system, converts data of a sector which is returned from the device driver, and writes the conversion data in the sector. Thereby, data conversion can be executed on a specific region of the storage medium, which is associated with the data in the storage medium.

  • Patent number: 8560540
    Abstract: This invention provides an information search system including a management table which stores a name of a memory area and memory area information indicating the memory area in association with each other. When received source information search destination information indicates that source information to be searched is stored in a memory, the information search system searches the management table for a name of a memory area which matches a received source information name of the source information to be searched. When the name of the memory area which matches the received source information name of the source information to be searched is retrieved, the system acquires information which matches the received search target condition information from memory area information associated with the retrieved name of the memory area.

  • Patent number: 8504706
    Abstract: An operation request from a process or OS for computer resource(s) managed by the OS, such as a file, network, storage device, display screen, or external device, is trapped before access to the computer resource. It is determined whether an access right for the computer resource designated by the trapped operation request is present. If the access right is present, the operation request is transferred to the operating system, and a result from the OS is returned to the request source process. If no access right is present, the operation request is denied, or the request is granted by charging in accordance with the contents of the computer resource.

  • Publication number: 20090271580
    Abstract: An electronic information format includes a header module and a history module in addition to source electronic information. A control program is incorporated in the header module, and the control program is expanded on a reception side. An operation on the electronic information on the reception side is recorded by the control program, and is written in the history module when the electronic information is closed. On a providing side, there are provided a program for creating electronic information of the present format, and a program for reading the history data from the electronic information. By this system, when the electronic information is provided, an operation, which is executed on the electronic information on the reception side, is recorded, and the record can be confirmed on the providing side.
