  • Patent number: 10318765
    Abstract: A system and method for securing a hypervisor and operating systems that execute on a computing device. An encrypted hypervisor is uploaded to a hardware chip. Prior to being executed, the hypervisor is decrypted using a secure security processor and stored in an on-chip memory. When a processor on the hardware chip executes the hypervisor, at least one on-chip component continuously authenticates the hypervisor during execution. A hypervisor configures a processor with access rights associated with an operating system, where the access rights determine access of the operating system to an at least one resource. A transaction filter then uses the access rights associated with the operating system to monitor the access of the operating system to the at least one resource in real-time as the operating system executes on a processor.

  • Patent number: 10241904
    Abstract: The factorization of test components when performing component-level regression testing in iterative builds of a computing system that consists of many working components. Performance metrics for test components are maintained across multiple builds of the computing program. To perform factorization, multiple factorings of a test component are identified and evaluated until a suitable improvement in the maintained performance metric for each corresponding test component is achieved (e.g., via simulation). This may be performed, across multiple of the test components. This process may be iterated through such that the set of test components being factored and evaluated in a subsequent iteration may in fact be a test component created by factorization in a prior iteration. The net result is that the factorization achieves improvement in performance metrics of the test components.

  • Patent number: 10198784
    Abstract: The techniques and systems described herein are directed to capturing commands in a multi-engine graphics processing unit (GPU). Captured commands can be played back by a developer to optimize software, hardware, and drivers. To accurately capture commands and memory associated with the commands during execution, dependencies between command buffer segments associated with the various GPU engines may be determined and used to divide a command buffer segment into atomic elements (which may also be referred to as seglets). Command buffer segments are analyzed to identify synchronization commands, which may represent a point in a command buffer segment that relies on an operation to be completed in another command buffer segment. The command buffer segment can be recursively divided into seglets based on the synchronization commands. The resulting seglets represent command segments that, upon execution, operate without synchronization interference from other command buffer segments.

  • Patent number: 10169221
    Abstract: The current document is directed to methods and systems for testing web sites. In certain implementations of the methods and systems, a testing service collects customer page-access and conversion information on behalf of a web site. The testing service is straightforwardly accessed and configured, through a web-site-based user interface, and is virtually incorporated into the web site by simple HTML-file modifications. A more efficient web-site-testing system nonuniformly distributes web-site accesses among web-page variants in order to more quickly and computationally efficiently determine a most effective web-page variant among a set of tested web-page variants. In certain implementations, nonuniform distribution of web-site accesses among web-page variants is facilitated by a Bayesian-inference method.

  • Patent number: 10146677
    Abstract: A set of test cases is executed on a base code to produce a baseline result and on a changed code to produce a new result. From the baseline result and the new result, a first subset of tests cases is determined that are failing with the changed code but were not failing with the base code. A set of code blocks is determined in the changed code that includes those code blocks that are referenced by the first subset of test cases. A second subset is formed from the first subset by disregarding an unchanged code block that has remained unchanged from the base code to the changed code. A remaining code block is shortlisted for investigating based on a ranking of the remaining code block, which uses a number of test cases in the first subset of test cases that reference the remaining code block.

  • Patent number: 10133656
    Abstract: This disclosure relates to systems and methods for generating covering arrays. By processing parameters and corresponding values pertaining to an application under test (AUT), the system generates a first set of arrays, wherein elements in the first set are unique from each other. A second set of arrays is generated by identifying two or more arrays from the first set. Each array in the second set may include pairwise interacting elements that are unique to each other. A third set of arrays is formed by interchanging pairwise interacting elements across the second set of arrays. Unique pairwise interacting elements are interchanged across set of arrays to eliminate from duplicating pairwise interacting elements. Combining two or more arrays from the third set of arrays results in an optimized covering array, which is then used for generating optimized test designs for at least one AUT.
