  • Publication number: 20200112435
    Abstract: Methods, media, and systems for secure provisioning of servers within a cloud computing environment are provided for herein. In some embodiments, a management service can delegate provisioning of a server of the cloud computing environment to an imaging service. In response, the imaging service can generate an operating system image for the server and can utilize disk encryption to protect to operating system image. In embodiments, a volume encryption key of the disk encryption can be encrypted utilizing a public key of a trusted platform manager of the server, to produce an encrypted volume encryption key that is protected by the trusted platform module of the server. The encrypted operating system image and the encrypted volume encryption key can then be transmitted to the server to cause the server to be provisioned with the operating system image. Other embodiments may be described and/or claimed herein.

  • Patent number: 10606048
    Abstract: An imaging optical unit serves within a metrology system for examining a lithography mask. The lithography mask can be arranged in an object field of the imaging optical unit. The object field is defined by two mutually perpendicular object field coordinates. The imaging optical unit has an aperture stop of which the aspect ratio in the direction of the two object field coordinates differs from 1. This results in an imaging optical unit which can be used for the examination of lithography masks that are designed for projection exposure with an anamorphic projection optical unit.

  • Publication number: 20200086840
    Abstract: A control valve for applying a spring-loaded brake pressure to spring-loaded parts of a rear-axle wheel brake is pneumatically activated as a function of a parking-brake braking demand and a service-brake braking demand. A first control chamber is connected via a first control piston to a control arrangement in the control valve. During an adjustment of the first control chamber via the service-brake control pressure, the spring-loaded brake pressure at the working output is a function of the service-brake control pressure or of the parking-brake control pressure. The first control piston is connected to a third control chamber, wherein the pressure in the first control chamber acts on the first control piston in one direction, and the pressure in the third control chamber acts on the first control piston in the opposite direction. The first control chamber is selectively connectable to the third control chamber via a switchable bypass valve.
