  • Publication number: 20200074815
    Abstract: Various embodiments herein include a pocket to receive tendered notes and to dispense notes from a terminal, such as an automated teller machine. The pocket may include a shutter, a lifter opposite the shutter, a pusher plate between and perpendicular to the shutter and lifter, and a ceiling clamp. The pocket also includes a controller that causes the terminal to perform actions when dispensing notes including moving the ceiling clamp to an open position and providing an output triggering dispensing of notes into the pocket. The actions further include moving the ceiling clamp to a closed position, moving the pusher plate to bias notes present within the pocket against the ceiling clamp and raising the lifter from a lower position to an upper position thereby lifting notes present between the pusher plate and the ceiling clamp. The shutter is then opened to expose and dispense the notes.

  • Publication number: 20200021134
    Abstract: A system and method for data collection and aggregation using a distributed network of communications enabled sensors connected to another primary network to achieve a secondary out-of-band monitoring perspective, for example, in power grids. The data collection system includes an aggregation and processing server configured to collect data from a variety of sensors adjacent to the monitored network each sensor includes secondary power such that it can continue data transmission even during power grid outages. The data collection system includes a method for secure real-time data ingest, machine learning enabled analysis, risk assessment, and anomaly detection on a broad geographic scale irrespective of isolated network boundaries.

  • Patent number: 9900322
    Abstract: Reference architecture pattern role data representing reference architecture pattern roles to be associated with entities taking part in the development, and/or deployment, and/or operation of an application is generated. Reference architecture pattern tier data representing reference architecture pattern tiers used to create, and/or deploy, and/or operate an application using the reference architecture pattern is generated. For each reference architecture pattern role at least one access and/or operational permission is associated with each reference architecture pattern tier. An entity is assigned one of the reference architecture pattern roles and for each reference architecture pattern tier, the entity is automatically provided the at least one access and/or operational permission associated with the reference architecture pattern role assigned to the entity.

  • Patent number: 8844044
    Abstract: A process for facilitating a client system defense training exercise implemented over a client-server architecture includes designated modules and hardware for protocol version identification message; registration; profiling; health reporting; vulnerability status messaging; storage; access and scoring. More particularly, the server identifies a rule-based vulnerability profile to the client and scores client responses in accordance with established scoring rules for various defensive and offensive asset training scenarios.

  • Patent number: 8671224
    Abstract: Training defense of a computer network. The system includes an enterprise asset subsystem to be defended. The enterprise asset subsystem runs operating system, support services, and application programs. The system also includes a neutral subsystem that is in communication with the enterprise asset subsystem and is used to set up and run at least one exercise scenario, and score performance of enterprise asset defenders in defending the system against exploits. Exploits are launched by an exploitation subsystem communication with the enterprise asset subsystem.
