|20130128305||SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR OBTAINING AN ELECTRONIC DOCUMENT - Methods, devices, and computer-readable storage media are provided. Some embodiments of the invention include an image processing device displaying on a display of the image processing device a machine-readable code, wherein information encoded in the machine-readable code is usable by a mobile computing device to establish a communication session between the mobile computing device and the image processing device. In some embodiments, the mobile computing device reads the machine-readable code, obtains the information by decoding the machine-readable code, and establishes the communication session using the information. In some embodiments, during the communication session, the image processing device receives a scan command, scans a physical document in response to the scan command, and sends an electronic document representing the scanned physical document to the mobile computing device.||05-23-2013|
|20130081118||METHOD, SYSTEM, AND COMPUTER-READABLE STORAGE MEDIUM FOR ESTABLISHING A LOGIN SESSION - A method, system, and computer-readable storage medium are provided. Embodiments of the invention include receiving notification of a log-in event associated with a first login session wherein a user is authorized to access a resource of a computing system based on a credential. During the first login session and in response to determining the credential is valid, a second login session is established by granting the user access to a resource of an application associated with the computing system. During the first login session and in response to receiving information indicating an event has occurred, the second login session is terminated such that the user does not have access to the resource of the application. And during the first login session and in response to determining again that the credential is valid, a third login session is established by granting the user access to a resource of the application.||03-28-2013|
|20120167169||METHOD, SYSTEM, AND COMPUTER-READABLE STORAGE MEDIUM FOR AUTHENTICATING A COMPUTING DEVICE - A method, system, and computer-readable storage medium for authenticating a computing device are provided. According to embodiments of the invention, a first computing device generates a message using first secret data and second secret data, the first secret data for authenticating to a second computing device, the second secret data for authenticating to a third computing device. The first computing device sends the message to the second computing device. In some embodiments, challenge-response authentication is implemented. For example, the first computing device receives a challenge from the second computing device and generates the message based at least in part on the challenge. The second computing device compares local information with information received from the first computing device. The first computing device can thereby be authenticated to the second computing device. Furthermore, the first computing device can be authenticated to the third computing device by a similar process.||06-28-2012|
|20110109933||CUSTOM PAPER INFORMATION CONVERTER - A method for generating custom postscript printer description files, the method including obtaining paper type information, obtaining an original postscript printer description file, converting the paper type information into a postscript printer description format, inserting the converted paper type information into the original postscript printer description file to create a custom postscript printer description file, and storing the custom postscript printer definition file.||05-12-2011|
|20090313262||SECURING DATA FROM A SHARED DEVICE - A method for securing the use of data on a first device where the data is sent from a second device, the method including registering at least a first application on the first device, starting the at least first application on the first device, transmitting data from the second device to the first device, determining whether the at least first application is registered, determining whether the at least first application is active, granting, based on the determination whether the at least first application is registered and whether the at least first application is active, the at least first application access to the data transmitted from the second device.||12-17-2009|
|20090265223||ESTIMATED TIME OF ARRIVAL (ETA) SYSTEMS AND METHODS - A system on a network provides estimated time of arrival information to a client located on the network. The system is adapted to present to the client pages for eliciting a product inquiry including a product number. The system receives the product inquiry, determines estimated time of arrivals for various destinations for at least one in-transit unit having the product number, and transmits to the client the estimated time of arrivals.||10-22-2009|
