*** OFS Fitel Assigned Patent ALEXANDRIA, Va., Jan. 9 -- OFS Fitel, Norcross, Ga., has been assigned a patent (8,353,061) developed by Mikhail Sumetsky, Bridgewater, N.J., for a "near-field scanning optical microscopy with nanoscale resolution from microscale probes." The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "To date, the probes of scanning near-field optical microscopes were aimed at creating electromagnetic field characteristics that are maximally localized near a nano-sized point (miniature apertures and tips, fluorescent nano-particles and molecules, dielectric and metal corners). Alternatively, the probe field, which is distributed within a larger area, can ensure the super-resolution as well. For this purpose, the field spectrum should be enriched with high spatial frequencies corresponding to small sample dimensions. As examples of such near-field probes, we propose and theoretically study the models of optical fibers with end-faces containing sharp linear edges and randomly distributed nanoparticles. These probes are more robust than the conventional probes and their fabrication is not concerned with nanoscale precision. The probes enable waveguiding of light to and from the sample with marginal losses distributing and utilizing the incident light more completely. Numerical modeling shows that, even with substantial measurement noise, the suggested probes can resolve objects that are significantly smaller than the probe size and, in certain cases, can perform better than miniature nanoprobes." The patent application was filed on May 4, 2009 (12/387,642).

When a first Internet Protocol (IP)-capable device is subjected to a packet attack, it indicates periodically to a second IP-capable device that certain communications with the first device are to be suspended. The periodic transmitting of the indication is performed at a slower rate than the keep-alive mechanism that is normally used to detect loss of connectivity. When the second device receives the transmitted indication, it refrains from transmitting keep-alive messages to the first device for a predetermined interval. Meanwhile, the first device also refrains from transmitting keep-alive messages to the second device for a similar interval. In transmitting the suspend indication, the illustrative embodiment seeks to prevent pairs of communicating devices that are experiencing packet attacks from continuing their operation under the erroneous assumption that each device is unavailable."

Lee, Princeton, N.J., Yu-Yuan Chen, Princeton, N.J., for a "parallel read functional unit for microprocessors." The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "A functional unit for a microprocessor is provided, which allows for fast, parallel data read, write, and manipulation operations in the microprocessor that are useful for a number of software applications, such as cryptography. The functional unit includes first and second source registers for receiving first and second data items to be processed by the functional unit, first and second banks of memory tables, a combinational logic circuit, and a decoder. The first and second banks of memory tables are in communication with the first source register, and each of the tables is indexed by an index comprising a portion of the first data item received by the first source register. Each index points to a lookup result in a respective one of the memory tables. The combinational logic circuit is in communication with the first and second banks of memory tables and the second source register, receives the lookup results, and processes the lookup results and the second data item in the second source register to produce a result data item. The decoder circuit is in communication with the combinational logic circuit, and extracts an operational code from an instruction supplied to the functional unit, decodes the operational code, and controls the combinational logic circuit in accordance with the operational code." The patent application was filed on Jan. 19, 2010 (12/690,040).

*** Intertrust Technologies Assigned Patent ALEXANDRIA, Va., Jan. 9 -- Intertrust Technologies, Sunnyvale, Calif., has been assigned a patent (8,352,747) developed by four co-inventors for a "software self-checking systems and methods." The co-inventors are William G. Horne, Lawrenceville, N.J., Lesley R. Matheson, Discovery Bay, Calif., Casey Sheehan, Hollister, Calif., and Robert E. Tarjan, Princeton, N.J.

The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "Software self-checking mechanisms are described for improving software tamper resistance and/or reliability. Redundant tests are performed to detect modifications to a program while it is running. Modifications are recorded or reported. Embodiments of the software self-checking mechanisms can be implemented such that they are relatively stealthy and robust, and so that they are compatible with copy-specific static watermarking and other tamper-resistance techniques." The patent application was filed on Aug. 12, 2011 (13/208,768).
