|20090205040||COMPUTER DATA PRODUCT LICENSE INSTALLATION / UPDATE CONFIRMATION - An authenticated digital confirmation of an installation or an update of a licensed computer data product, for providing the licensor with a validation that the installation/update was carried out as intended, and conveying relevant details of the installation/update. The installation/updating facility (internal software, external hardware device, or combination thereof) examines and documents the pre-installation/update state of the target computer system, performs the installation/update, examines and documents the post-installation/update state, and generates the confirmation, which is a summary or digest of the process and the status thereof. The confirmation is securely authenticated and sent to the licensor for validation, to be used for order fulfillment, billing and accounting, and other purposes.||08-13-2009|
|20090049425||Code Obfuscation By Reference Linking - A method of obfuscating executable computer code to impede reverse-engineering, by interrupting the software's execution flow and replacing in-line code with calls to subroutines that do not represent logical program blocks. Embodiments of the present invention introduce decoy code to confuse attackers, and computed branching to relocated code so that actual program flow cannot be inferred from disassembled source representations.||02-19-2009|
|20080259797||Load-Balancing Bridge Cluster For Network Nodes - A network load-balancing cluster configured to function as a transparent bridge, by connecting the load-balancing nodes in series rather than in parallel, as is done in prior-art configurations. A load-balancing algorithm and method are disclosed, by which each node in the configuration independently determines whether to process a data packet or pass the data packet along for processing by another node. To support this, load-balancing nodes are equipped with both software and hardware data pass-through capabilities that allow the nodes to pass along data packets that are processed by a different nodes.||10-23-2008|
