  • Patent number: 10210333
    Abstract: According to some embodiments, an overall chain-of-trust may be established for an industrial control system. Secure hardware may be provided, including a hardware security module coupled to or integrated with a processor of the industrial control system to provide a hardware root-of-trust. Similarly, secure firmware associated with a secure boot mechanism such that the processor executes a trusted operating system, wherein the secure boot mechanism includes one or more of a measured boot, a trusted boot, and a protected boot. Objects may be accessed via secure data storage, and data may be exchanged via secure communications in accordance with information stored in the hardware security model.
    Type: Grant

  • Patent number: 9342358
    Abstract: A system and method for controlling processor instruction execution. In one example, a method for synchronizing a number of instructions performed by processors includes instructing a first processor to iteratively execute instructions via a first set of iterations until a predetermined time period has elapsed. A number of instructions executed in each iteration of the first set of iterations is less than a number of instructions executed in a prior iteration of the first set of iterations. The method also includes instructing a second processor to iteratively execute instructions via a second set of iterations until the predetermined time period has elapsed. A number of instructions executed in each iteration of the second set of iterations is less than a number of instructions executed in a prior iteration of the second set of iterations. The method includes determining whether additional instructions are to be executed.

  • Publication number: 20160059827
    Abstract: An electronic passive entry-passive start (ePEPS) system includes a first satellite ultra-wideband antenna, a second satellite ultra-wideband antenna, a third satellite ultra-wideband antenna, and a fourth satellite ultra-wideband antenna. A remote function actuator is in electronic communication with the first satellite ultra-wideband antenna, the second satellite ultra-wideband antenna, the third satellite ultra-wideband antenna, and the fourth satellite ultra-wideband antenna. A body control module can be in electronic communication with remote function actuator. A key fob is in wireless communication with the first satellite ultra-wideband antenna, the second satellite ultra-wideband antenna, the third satellite ultra-wideband antenna, and the fourth satellite ultra-wideband antenna such that predetermined functions in a vehicle are actuated depending on the position of a user.

  • Patent number: 9256426
    Abstract: A system and method for controlling processor instruction execution. In one example, a method for controlling a total number of instructions executed by a processor includes instructing the processor to iteratively execute instructions via multiple iterations until a predetermined time period has elapsed. A number of instructions executed in each iteration of the iterations is less than a number of instructions executed in a prior iteration of the iterations. The method also includes determining the total number of instructions executed during the predetermined time period.
