  • Patent number: 10542007
    Abstract: A method for controlling an operation of an industrial machine that includes authenticating control commands remotely issued by command issuers through a network. The control commands each describe a modifying action to the operation of the industrial machine. The method includes: providing a jump host as a communication buffer between a unit controller of the industrial machine and the network; maintaining within a memory of the jump host whitelisted commands, the whitelisted commands including a list of the approved control commands; receiving, at the jump host, a first control command via the network; determining, at the jump host, whether the first control command is contained within the whitelisted commands; in response to an affirmative determination that the first control command is contained within the whitelisted commands, deeming the first control command as being authenticated; and transmitting the first control command to the unit controller of the industrial machine.

  • Patent number: 10450957
    Abstract: A gas turbine engine includes a rotor section proximate to a combustor section, where the rotor section is subject to bowing effects due to thermal differences and heat transfer at engine shutdown. The gas turbine engine also includes a heat pipe system. The heat pipe system includes one or more heat pipes installed between an upper portion of the rotor section and a lower portion of the rotor section. The heat pipe system is operable to accept heat at a hot side of the heat pipe system at the upper portion, flow heat from the hot side to a cold side of the heat pipe system, and reject heat from the cold side of the heat pipe system at the lower portion to reduce a thermal differential between the upper portion and the lower portion at engine shutdown.

  • Publication number: 20190266103
    Abstract: A self-encrypting drive (SED) comprises an SED controller and a nonvolatile storage medium (NVSM) responsive to the SED controller. The SED controller enables the SED to perform operations comprising: (a) receiving an encrypted media encryption key (eMEK) for a client; (b) decrypting the eMEK into an unencrypted media encryption key (MEK); (c) receiving a write request from the client, wherein the write request includes data to be stored and a key tag value associated with the MEK; (d) using the key tag value to select the MEK for the write request; (e) using the MEK for the write request to encrypt the data from the client; and (f) storing the encrypted data in a region of the NVSM allocated to the client. Other embodiments are described and claimed.
