U.S. Patents Awarded to Inventors in Texas (Jan. 23)

(Targeted News Service Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Targeted News Service Targeted News Service ALEXANDRIA, Va., Jan. 23 -- The following federal patents were awarded to inventors in Texas.

*** International Business Machines Assigned Patent for System and Method for Dynamic Creation of Privileges to Secure System Services ALEXANDRIA, Va., Jan. 23 -- International Business Machines, Armonk, N.Y., has been assigned a patent (8,359,635) developed by Saurabh Desai, Austin, Texas, and Murali Vaddagiri, Karnataka, India, for a "system and method for dynamic creation of privileges to secure system services." The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "A system, method, and program product is provided that allows new privileges to be dynamically added to an operating system. Entities are assigned roles and these roles are associated with various authorizations. Authorizations are associated with privileges, including the new privilege. A request is received to dynamically add the new privilege to the operating system. The operating system then dynamically adds the new privilege to the system. A software service is installed that requires the new privilege. A request to execute the installed software service is received from an entity that is running on the operating system. The operating system allows the entity to execute the installed software service in response to determining that the entity has been granted the privilege. However, if the entity has not been granted the new privilege, then the operating system inhibits execution of the software service by the entity." The patent application was filed on Feb. 25, 2008 (12/036,318). The full-text of the patent can be found at http://patft.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser Sect1=PTO2&Sect2=HITOFF&p=1&u=%2Fnetahtml%2FPTO%2Fsearch-bool.html&r=1&f=G&l=50&co1=AND&d=PTXT&s1=8,359,635&OS=8,359,635&RS=8,359,635 Written by Satyaban Rath; edited by Hemanta Panigrahi.



*** United States Automobile Association Assigned Patent ALEXANDRIA, Va., Jan. 23 -- United States Automobile Association, San Antonio, has been assigned a patent (8,359,639) developed by Arthur Quentin Smith, Fredericksburg, Texas, and Ronnie Allen Eichler, San Antonio, for "systems and methods for increased security during logging in to web site." The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "A user at a computing device interacts with a networked site so that the user can log in thereto. The site receives a selection to log in and in response downloads at least one replacing driver for bypassing a corresponding driver operating on the computing device that may possibly copy log-in data including authentication credentials as entered by the user. Each replacing driver is loaded into an operating system of the computing device so as to bypass the corresponding possibly copying driver and be employed in the operating system rather than such corresponding bypassed driver. The site then delivers a log-in screen to a presentation application of the computing device after each replacing driver has been loaded. The presentation application displays the log-in screen and the user enters the log-in data thereinto. Accordingly, each non-trusted and bypassed driver is unable to copy the entered log-in data." The patent application was filed on Dec. 2, 2011 (13/310,363). The full-text of the patent can be found at http://patft.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser Sect1=PTO2&Sect2=HITOFF&p=1&u=%2Fnetahtml%2FPTO%2Fsearch-bool.html&r=1&f=G&l=50&co1=AND&d=PTXT&s1=8,359,639&OS=8,359,639&RS=8,359,639 Written by Satyaban Rath; edited by Hemanta Panigrahi.

The mechanism then gives the decomposed layout and design rule definition to any existing design rule fixing or layout compaction tool to solve native conflicts. The modified design rules are that same-layer spacing equals spacing of single patterning, different-layer spacing equals spacing of final layout, and layer overlap equals minimum overlap length." The patent application was filed on June 29, 2011 (13/171,530).

*** Sychron Advanced Technologies Assigned Patent ALEXANDRIA, Va., Jan. 23 -- Sychron Advanced Technologies, Austin, Texas, has been assigned a patent (8,359,594) developed by Thomas James Davidson, Austin, Texas, Jonathan Mark Harper Nash, Oxfordshire, United Kingdom, and Vasil Petrov Vasilev, London, for an "automated rapid virtual machine provisioning system." The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "Embodiments disclosed herein utilize Habitats to perform incremental updates on virtual machines (VMs) over time. A VM Habitat comprises a collection of VMs and a specification shared between these VMs. Each Habitat specification may define an image name, processing power, etc. A Habitat specification may exist across a cluster of servers. In some embodiments, to dynamically update a Habitat specification, only "spare" VMs in the Habitat are updated, subject to some scheduling parameters and server concurrency limit. As spare VMs are updated, they move towards the new Habitat specification. Eventually, all VMs reach this goal over time, given sufficient spare VM resources. This approach can allow the service provided by the VMs to remain operational, thus maintaining the service level required for its users. This automated process can also eliminate or otherwise reduce human error either in the server removal/insertion from/to the cluster or in the VM update itself." The patent application was filed on May 27, 2010 (12/789,196). The full-text of the patent can be found at http://patft.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser Sect1=PTO2&Sect2=HITOFF&p=1&u=%2Fnetahtml%2FPTO%2Fsearch-bool.html&r=1&f=G&l=50&co1=AND&d=PTXT&s1=8,359,594&OS=8,359,594&RS=8,359,594 Written by Satyaban Rath; edited by Hemanta Panigrahi.

User input specifying desired timing of a first node with respect to timing of a second node may be received. In various embodiments, any kind of timing relationship or timing constraint between the first node and the second node may be specified. Timing information may be displayed on the display to visually indicate the timing of the first node with respect to timing of the second node. In one embodiment, displaying the timing information may comprise displaying a timing wire between the first node and the second node. The graphical program may be executed in such a way that the visually indicated timing of the first node with respect to timing of the second node is satisfied." The patent application was filed on April 30, 2007 (11/742,528).
