  • Patent number: 10592421
    Abstract: Instructions and logic provide advanced paging capabilities for secure enclave page caches. Embodiments include multiple hardware threads or processing cores, a cache to store secure data for a shared page address allocated to a secure enclave accessible by the hardware threads. A decode stage decodes a first instruction specifying said shared page address as an operand, and execution units mark an entry corresponding to an enclave page cache mapping for the shared page address to block creation of a new translation for either of said first or second hardware threads to access the shared page. A second instruction is decoded for execution, the second instruction specifying said secure enclave as an operand, and execution units record hardware threads currently accessing secure data in the enclave page cache corresponding to the secure enclave, and decrement the recorded number of hardware threads when any of the hardware threads exits the secure enclave.

  • Patent number: 5557294
    Abstract: A new life saving device used as an emergency signal consisting of a light weight, shirt pocket size, hand powered source of bright, flashing light and high pitched sound which, when carried by persons who become injured, overboard, lost, travelers in an accident, will greatly enhance efforts to rescue them in daytime and avoid the common practice of abandoning search after dark. The light weight and small size are achieved by combining in one device a piezoelectric (ref. Cady) element and a xenon type flash tube principle, but in both derivations and developments somewhat different. The mechanics of hand operation are designed to require minimum hand effort and to obtain good reliability. One piece case adds to reliability. Change of light color at intervals aids recognition as a distress signal. The size, weight and short life of batteries are avoided, as they are not used in this invention.

  • Patent number: 5446273
    Abstract: This invention relates to a credit card and security system to prevent use of credit cards, identification cards and the like by other than the assigned holder of the cards by inserting identifying information in electronic distorted form pertaining only to assigned holder, hidden within the card. The system provides for the person checking the validity of the card to see it undistorted and to examine the hidden information, to determine positively if the person presenting the card is the assigned holder of the card and decide if the card should be honored.
