  • Patent number: 10532879
    Abstract: To provide a shield and a dispenser from which the shield can be easily dispensed, the dispenser (100) according to the present invention stores a plurality of shields (1A) in a mutually detachable joined state in the container (50). As such, sliding and the like of the plurality of the shields (1A) against each other in the container (50) is suppressed and, therefore, sticking of the shields (1A) to each other due to the generation of static electricity is suppressed. Thus, a user can easily dispense the shields (1A) from the dispensing opening (51) of the container (50).

  • Patent number: 9521163
    Abstract: A system manager sets a port connected to a specific device (for example, a router device) among a plurality of ports of a switch device as a reliable port. If a packet is received in the reliable port, the switch device manages an IP address and a MAC address of the router device by a reliable port information table. When a packet is received from a port not set as the reliable port, the switch device refers to the reliable port information table. At this time, when the received packet is an address resolution packet having impersonated a router device, the switch device discards the packet without transmitting the packet, thereby preventing a cyber attack on a terminal.
