  • Publication number: 20200288009
    Abstract: An approach is disclosed that optically transmit data from a dedicated mobile device (DMD) to another device. Optically transmitting the data is performed by displaying the data on a display screen included in the DMD. The approach further optically receives data at the DMD. The data is received at a digital camera included in the DMD. Based on the exchanged data, the DMD determines if the DMD and the other device are bound to each other.

  • Publication number: 20200287725
    Abstract: An approach is disclosed that places a first side of an optical communication mounting frame (OCMF) onto a surface of a device with some of the device's display and its digital camera being are hidden from view from outside of the OCMF. A second device is received at another side of the OCMF, with some of the device's display and its digital camera being are hidden from view from outside of the OCMF. Each display is viewable from the other device's digital camera. Optical communications between the devices is performed by displaying data on one display that is read by the other device's digital camera and this communication is allowed while the OCMF is present. However, communication between the devices is inhibited when the OCMF is not present.

  • Publication number: 20200120126
    Abstract: Prioritizing vulnerability scan results is provided. Vulnerability scan results data corresponding to a network of data processing systems are received from a vulnerability scanner. The vulnerability scan results data are parsed to group the vulnerability scan results data by vulnerability identifiers. A corresponding security threat information identifier is associated with each vulnerability identifier. A correlation of each associated security threat information identifier is performed with a set of current vulnerability exploit data that corresponds to that particular security threat information identifier. Current security threat information that affects host data processing systems in the network is determined based on the correlation between each associated security threat information identifier and its corresponding set of current vulnerability exploit data. The current security threat information is prioritized based on a number of corresponding current vulnerability exploit attacks.

  • Patent number: 10536846
    Abstract: An approach is disclosed that optically transmits a data from an information handling system that is a Stand Alone Certificate Authority (SACA) device, to a dedicated mobile device (DMD). The optically transmission is performed by displaying the data on a display screen included in the SACA device. The approach further optically receives data from the DMD by reading data displayed on the DMD's display screen using the SACA device's digital camera. Based on the data transmitted and received, the system verifies that the DMD and the SACA device are bound to each other.

  • Patent number: 8695101
    Abstract: A computer hardware-implemented method, system, and/or computer program product determines an applicability of a data privacy regulation when transmitting data used with an enterprise project. A data privacy regulation describes regulatory restrictions on data being transmitted from a first geopolitical entity to a second geopolitical entity. A set of categorized data is used by an enterprise project, and the data privacy regulation establishes limitations on a transmission of at least one category of data, from the set of categorized data, from the first geopolitical entity to the second geopolitical entity. A first set of binary data and a second set of binary data are processed to determine if transmission of said at least one category of data from the first geopolitical entity to the second geopolitical entity is regulated by the data privacy regulation.

  • Patent number: 8660874
    Abstract: In general, the present invention provides a technique for IT estimation modeling of any organization. Although this estimation model is applied to SOA herein, it is not limited to solely estimating SOA activities; the maturity-based estimation modeling can be applied to other areas and disciplines, even beyond the IT industry. The maturity-based model of the present invention also offers executives and project managers a very effective estimating tool to analyze the impact of project variances. Resources do not need to be taken off projects and assigned to perform estimations, as this model acquires knowledge over time and delivers ever more precise estimates with each successive project. Executives and project managers may analyze the effects of additional staff, function changes, or other events to an overall project. Additionally, new projects may be estimated without utilizing current personnel with this adaptive learning model.
