  • Patent number: 7689547
    Abstract: An indexing value may be determined, transparently with respect to a requester, based on a desired plaintext item of data and a cryptographic key. The indexing value may be used to access an entry in an indexing structure to obtain a corresponding database entry which includes a non-deterministically encrypted ciphertext item. In another embodiment, an indexing structure for a database may be accessed. Positions of items of the indexing structure may be based on corresponding plaintext items. References related to the corresponding plaintext items in the indexing structure may be encrypted and other information in the indexing structure may be unencrypted. A portion of the indexing structure may be loaded into a memory and at least one of the encrypted references related to one of the plaintext items may be decrypted. The decrypted reference may be used to access a corresponding non-deterministically encrypted data item from the database.

  • Publication number: 20090282083
    Abstract: Various technologies and techniques are disclosed for improving configuration of database audits. Multiple audits can be created for a database. Any one of the audits can be turned off without impacting an operation of any remaining audits. Database audits can be ported from one database server instance to another. Database audit metadata is stored in a database separately from a database server instance to which the database is attached. The database can be detached from the database server instance and attached to a second database server instance, with the database audit metadata moving along with the database automatically. Any audits associated with the database audit metadata are automatically activated for the second database server instance. Database audits can be configured using a hierarchical model.

  • Publication number: 20090216768
    Abstract: Systems and methods that qualify and/or restrict access of codes associated with a database to objects located outside thereof and in other databases—even though a person executing such code does in fact have permission to interact with the object that the code is attempting to access. A sandbox component can regulate access from one database to another database, by managing authenticator permission and/or trust permission levels. Hence, the set of privileges assigned to security execution context of an executable module (procedure, trigger, computed column) in an un-trusted database is restricted not to exceed a privilege set assigned to database owner.

  • Publication number: 20090030378
    Abstract: A medical in-line flow control clamp device which is arranged coaxially along the longitudinal axis of an infusion tube or the like, and which has a sleeve connected to the tube and a slide having an arm movably mounted on and having a part biased toward the sleeve in a manner where the arm bears against and pinches the tube when the slid is moved relative to the sleeve. The sleeve may have a ramp and support directed toward the tube which causes the arm to move against the tube. The slide may be fabricated from a plastic material, such as acrylic, which causes the arm to bind against the tube. The sleeve may have one or more stops and latch means to receive and secure the arm in tube pinching relation. The sleeve and slide may have a track and projection parts which train the slide in a predetermined direction toward the tube as the slide is moved to pinching position on the sleeve.

  • Publication number: 20080288822
    Abstract: Systems and methods that incorporate fuzzing capabilities within an SQL server to facilitate penetration testing. A fuzzing component associated with the SQL server provides an entry point for accessing the fuzzing system to update explicit user specified parameters associated with SQL, wherein the server's in depth knowledge regarding semantics of the language code (e.g., manner of parsing) can be employed to determine vulnerabilities thereof.

  • Publication number: 20080097954
    Abstract: A requester may request a ranged lookup operation with respect to an encrypted column of a database. An indexing structure may be used to perform the ranged lookup operation. The indexing structure may include multiple entries. Each of the entries of the indexing structure may include an index value and retrieval information for retrieving a corresponding row of the database. The index value of each entry may correspond to a respective decrypted data item from the encrypted column of the database, which was transformed by a transformation function such that the transformed decrypted data item may reveal less information than the decrypted data item before being transformed by the transformation function. When the respective index value of one of the entries of the indexing structure satisfies the received ranged lookup request, the respective retrieval information may be used to retrieve a corresponding row of data from the database.

  • Publication number: 20080065893
    Abstract: In one embodiment, an object in a database schema may be verified as having a valid digital signature associated with a trusted entity. An application may be permitted access to the object of the database schema only when the object of the database schema is verified to have a valid digital signature associated with the trusted entity. In another embodiment, an object in a database schema may be verified as having a digital signature associated with at least one trusted entity. An application may be permitted access to the object of the database schema only when the digital signature for the object is verified to be associated with the at least one trusted entity.

  • Publication number: 20070005600
    Abstract: A database management system that supports multiple databases in an instance with controlled sharing between the databases. The invention can also support execution of procedures and other modules in the context of any principal possibly different from that of the caller. Trusted certificates can be employed to permit access to procedures (or other modules). The security context of the invention can enable the building blocks of building a pure trusted sub-system model of authorization.

  • Patent number: 7125398
    Abstract: The present invention provides a needle guard comprising a base having a needle well to guide the point of a needle into the patient and, at the same time, for confining the pointed end of a needle within the walls of the needle well until the needle is inserted into a patient. The base is connected by at least a connector to a handle. The connector is constructed to allow the needle to be pushed beyond the needle well thereby exposing the needle. The connector also limits the extent to which the needle can be retracted. This prevents the needle from being pulled past the needle well as the needle is extracted from the patient. As a consequence of the construction, the point of the needle is substantially maintained within the needle well, except when the needle is inserted into the patient.

  • Patent number: 6533666
    Abstract: An intermediate steering shaft including a tubular shaft element, a solid shaft element telescoped into the tubular shaft element, a pair of universal couplings for connecting the tubular and solid elements to respective ones of a steering shaft and a steering gear input shaft, and a torsionally elastic coupling between the solid shaft element and the corresponding one of the universal couplings. The torsionally elastic coupling includes a torsion sleeve on the solid shaft element, a bushing cavity around the torsion sleeve in a yoke of the universal coupling, and an elastomeric bushing on the torsion sleeve interference fitted in the bushing cavity. A pair of long radial lugs on the torsion sleeve are disposed in respective ones of a pair of notches in the universal coupling yoke with separation therebetween. The elastomeric bushing is relatively soft for maximum torsional vibration isolation at high vehicle speed.
