  • Publication number: 20210029109
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and devices for secure endpoint authentication credential control are described. An endpoint agent may receive an indication from an operating system of an endpoint device that the operating has received authentication credentials from a user. The endpoint agent may be housed in the endpoint device, and may detect a change between the received set of authentication credentials and a previous version of authentication credentials. Based on this detection, the endpoint agent may transmit the received authentication credentials to a central server. The central server may transmit the authentication credentials to an information technology (IT) resource which requires user authentication prior to granting access to a user.

  • Patent number: 10845267
    Abstract: Fatigue fuse mounting systems and methods are discussed in this application. It is advantageous in the field of structural monitoring for fatigue fuses that are engineered to break in sequence to both be mounted near each other and also to work toward ensuring the fatigue fuses all undergo similar load cycling. Simply sticking a set of fatigue fuses to a structure can result in each fatigue fuse from an engineered set undergoing different load cycling, which can reduce their effectiveness. Thus, fatigue fuse mounting systems—and methods of implementing the systems—are contemplated in this application. The system includes a structural frame and a fatigue fuse mounting cartridge. These components work together to ensure that each fatigue fuse in a set undergoes more uniform load cycling, thereby improving structural monitoring performance.

  • Publication number: 20200351767
    Abstract: A method for operating a mobile entity in a mobile communications network having at least one slice is provided. The slice of the mobile communication to which the mobile entity intends to connect is determined. Additionally, whether a relationship can be identified in the mobile entity is determined. The relationship indicates whether the slice to which the mobile entity intends to connect is related to an access point of the that slice. A request message is then transmitted to a radio access network (RAN) of the mobile communications network that includes the identified relationship.

  • Patent number: 10807304
    Abstract: A method is presented that makes possible the labelling of powders that can be applied as building material in a layer-additive manufacturing method such as a selective laser sintering method. To this effect the powder is mixed with at least one salt of a metal of the rare earths, wherein the salt has the property that it shows a luminescence when being irradiated with photons having a wavelength outside of the visible spectrum or with particle radiation. Thereby, parts that have been manufactured by means of the layer-additive manufacturing method can be identified with regard to the manufacturer, the place of manufacture or the manufacture date.

  • Publication number: 20200150675
    Abstract: A method for assisting bay parking maneuvers of a vehicle includes locating, by a sensor system of the vehicle, an unoccupied parking space in a bay parking area. The method includes acquiring, by the sensor system, parking data on the unoccupied parking space, the parking data including information on positions of vehicles parking laterally adjacent to the unoccupied parking space in the bay parking area. The method includes deciding, by a decision unit of the vehicle, based on the parking data, if the vehicle fits into the unoccupied parking space side-to-side with at least one of the other vehicles, wherein a predefined lateral clearance is taken into account on both lateral sides of the vehicle. The method includes providing, by a steering assistant unit of the vehicle, steering instructions for steering the vehicle into the unoccupied parking space adjacent to the respective parking vehicle in observance with the predefined lateral clearance.
