  • Patent number: 10582018
    Abstract: A module having at least a processor, memory and a wireless communication capability communicates with a host computing device that does not include a network device driver and is not able to directly access the network. The module provides wireless network access to the host computing device that does not include a network device driver. The module interfaces internally with the host computing device and utilizes a data frame communication protocol, such as an Ethernet protocol, to pass network data to the host computing device that was received from the network and to receive network data from the host computing device for transmission to the network.

  • Patent number: 10552240
    Abstract: In one embodiment, a system includes at least one processor and logic integrated with and/or executable by the processor, the logic being configured to instantiate, using an interface definition language (IDL) on a first server, a remote procedure call (RPC) function to exchange information between the first server and a second server, generate at least one stub on the first server using the RPC, and generate at least one stub on the second server using the RPC, wherein the at least one stub generated on the second server does not perform any marshalling or un-marshaling of data when endianess of the two servers is the same. Other systems, methods, and computer program products for exchanging information between servers using RPCs are described in more embodiments.

  • Patent number: 10503535
    Abstract: Embodiments are directed to a requirements-based performance monitor (RBPM) that presents users, through a command line interface or graphical user interface, with a single number in the range of 1-100% and/or a color-coded indicator that allows users to readily tell if the I/O needs of their primary applications in a virtualized computing system are being sufficiently satisfied. The RBPM takes into account both device latency, throughput, IOPS, and slow I/O measurements and primary application requirements. The process uses detailed device latency tables for each device to allow a user to find the particular device and time that performance degradation occurred.

  • Patent number: 10482022
    Abstract: Methods and systems are presented for custom caching. Application threads define caches. The caches may be accessed through multiple index keys, which are mapped to multiple application thread-defined keys. Methods provide for the each index key and each application thread-defined key to be symmetrical. The index keys are used for loading data from one or more data sources into the cache stores on behalf of the application threads. Application threads access the data from the cache store by providing references to the caches and the application-supplied keys. Some data associated with some caches may be shared from the cache store by multiple application threads. Additionally, some caches are exclusively accessed by specific application threads.

  • Patent number: 10454963
    Abstract: Disclosed herein are representative embodiments of methods, apparatus, and systems for improving the functioning of IT assets in an IT infrastructure. The embodiments help secure and protect against outside cybersecurity attacks on IT assets and infrastructures, such as internet-centric attacks. Particular embodiments comprise detecting exploitable vulnerabilities of IT assets of an IT infrastructure, using the observed vulnerability data together with collected event log data to determine whether a respective vulnerability has actually been exploited for an asset, integrating change audit data and third-party threat data with the vulnerability data for exploited vulnerabilities, generating user interfaces/reports that display selected aspects of the integrated data, and/or modifying the asset to address the exploited vulnerability in response.

  • Patent number: 10440066
    Abstract: Methods and systems are provided for switching protocols at a local client without having to delete the existing client account and without having to create a new client account that specifies the new protocol. The client an application executing on the client is configured with the capability to dynamically switch between protocols. For example, the client or an application executing on the client may employ a remote procedure call (RPC) protocol and may dynamically switch to a hypertext transfer (HTTP) protocol or vice versa upon request of the server.

  • Patent number: 10425675
    Abstract: A system includes a television executing a discoverable service thereon to provide a communication, and a device residing in a same private network of a computer network as the television. The device is configured to constrain an executable environment in a security sandbox, execute a sandboxed program in the executable environment, use a pseudonym of a user, and call a discovery agent to find the discoverable service of the television within the same private network in accordance with the communication. The device and the television are associated by way of the sandboxed program and the discoverable service using at least the communication from the discoverable service within the same private network. The system also includes a targeting system to receive the pseudonym, identify the user of the device using the pseudonym, and target advertising to the identified user of the device using the sandboxed program and/or the discoverable service.

  • Patent number: 10379846
    Abstract: An approach is proposed to support version control for integrating updated web-based components with a native application of a mobile device. A new version of a mini app is received at an application version control module configured to control versioning of the mini app and the native application, wherein the mini app includes one or more web-based features in JavaScript to be integrated with the native application. Version compatibility checks are performed to confirm that the new version of the mini app only contains native dependencies that match with a version of the native application the version of the mini app depends on. The new version of the mini app is integrated with the native application into the target mobile application if the version compatibility checks pass. Finally, the target mobile application is uploaded to an app store to make the target mobile application available to an end user.

  • Patent number: 10366136
    Abstract: Systems and methods are provided for manipulating objects in a framework software application that embeds another software application that does not natively support object manipulation controls of the framework software application. To overcome this difficulty, a user interface of the embedded software application is provided in an embedded window disposed within a framework window. Moreover, the user interface of the framework software application is provided in the framework window. Next, a transparent interface element, configured to detect events generated by the object manipulation controls of the framework software application, is generated, and is positioned over the embedded window.

  • Patent number: 10366057
    Abstract: Data or one or more operations can be provided, based on one or more characteristics associated with the data and/or operations, to a designated computing group or pool of computing resources designated for handling the data and/or operations with the particular data characteristic(s). The designated computing group can, for example, be one of multiple computing groups in the same system or device. As such, all of the computing groups can still function together in the same system or device, for example, in parallel. However, each one of the multiple computing groups can, for example, be defined or predefined to include one or more computing resources that are more suitable for storing and/or processing data with one or more data characteristics or handle operations with one or more determined characteristics.

  • Patent number: 10353678
    Abstract: Systems and methods are described for conducting static analysis of code invoking network-based services to identify, without requiring execution of the code, changes in code characteristics that may be caused due to the invocations of the network-based services. A system is provided that may analyze code to detect both direct invocations of services, as well as indirect invocations caused by the direct invocations. The system can utilize information regarding directly or indirectly invoked services to determine whether the invocation of such services will change desired code characteristics, such as idempotency or conformity to a standard. In some instances, the system can traverse a “call graph” of all services invoked by code either directly or indirectly to identify characteristic changes through multiple levels of indirection.
