|20120066388||MANAGEMENT OF B2B COMMUNITIES - A method for managing a B2B electronic commerce community, wherein a plurality of B2B partners interact with a hub entity via a plurality of B2B applications, includes receiving interaction information describing interactions of a B2B partner with at least one of the B2B applications. The interaction information may describe a material flow, correspondence, transactions, notices, relationships, and so forth, between the B2B partner and the hub. Based at least in part on the received interaction information, the method develops a community manager that supports a common set of community management modules in communication with each of the B2B applications and maintains a single, hub-wide view of each of the B2B partners. The modules may include, as examples, modules for new partner on-boarding, community maintenance, improvement, and networking including social network tooling.||03-15-2012|
|20110209199||METHOD AND SYSTEM FOR SECURE COMMUNICATION - A method and system for secure communication is presented. A virtual private proxy is generated based on an agreement between a first entity and a second entity. A first virtual private proxy is associated with the first entity and a second virtual private proxy is associated with the second entity. Data associated with the first entity is monitored at the virtual private proxy. Whether the data violates the agreement is determined and communication of the data from the first virtual private proxy to the second virtual private proxy is disallowed when the data violates the agreement.||08-25-2011|
|20110054904||ELECTRONIC SHOPPING ASSISTANT WITH SUBVOCAL CAPABILITY - A mobile device suitable for use by a user in a store includes a subvocal message (SVM) module to detect an SVM from the user. The SVM includes data that indicates an item in the store. A transmitter transmits a request after detecting the SVM. The request includes information indicating the item. A receiver receives a reply. The reply includes information responsive to the request. An output device provides the responsive information to the user. The request may include a request for item position information, item price information, or item inventory information. The mobile device may detect the SVM via a subvocal sensor coupled to the user. The subvocal sensor may be in contact with the user in proximity to a vocal cord of the user. The subvocal sensor may be connected to the mobile device wirelessly or via a wire.||03-03-2011|
|20100199097||NON-REPUDIABLE TRANSLATION OF ELECTRONIC DOCUMENTS - A method for non-repudiable translation of documents is disclosed, whereby a computer application determines a storage location for a first document, generates a first digital signature for the first document, determines a storage location for a plurality of translation instructions, generates a second digital signature for the plurality of translation instructions, translates the first document, assembles a second document including the storage location for the first document, the storage location for the plurality of translation instructions, the first digital signature, the second digital signature, the translation, and at least one encryption key associated with the first document and the plurality of translation instructions, and digitally signs the second document. The signed document includes sufficient information to demonstrate non-repudiable translation of the first document.||08-05-2010|
|20100125616||AUTOMATIC GENERATION OF DOCUMENT TRANSLATION MAPS - A method for generating translation maps for converting electronic documents is disclosed. Machine-interpretable encodings of respective source and target documents are used to automatically generate the translation map. Generating the machine-interpretable encodings may involve using semantic analysis to create semantic descriptions of the document formats. The translation map may be cached. The source document is converted to the target document using the translation map. The translation map or the target document may be delivered to a second entity by a first entity. If some portion of the source document is not converted, indication of the unconverted sections may be reported.||05-20-2010|
|20100077093||Protocol Conversion Using Facilities and Utilities - A protocol converter includes a computer-readable storage medium that includes operational instructions that, when executed by a processor, allows communications between a first node and a second node which use different communications protocols. In a particular embodiment, the computer-readable storage medium includes operational instructions to use a first facility to receive first data from a first node, where the first data complies with a first protocol, and where the first facility supports at least one of a first link layer and a first line layer communications protocol. The computer-readable storage medium includes operational instructions that spawn a utility in response to receiving the first data. The computer-readable storage medium also includes operational instructions that use the utility to translate the first data into second data in a second protocol and that use a second facility to send the second data to a second node.||03-25-2010|
|20090044261||SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR SECURE DUAL CHANNEL COMMUNICATION THROUGH A FIREWALL - A server including a dual channel communications module operable to establish a communication session between the server and a client is provided. The server may be operable to receive a dual channel communication packet from the client. In a particular embodiment, the dual channel communication packet may include a header in a data payload. The header includes a client external IP address, and the data payload includes an encoded port command having a client internal IP address and a client data port number. A codec operable to decode the port command may also be provided. The server may also include a translation module for retrieving the client external IP address from the header. In a particular embodiment, the server is operable to establish data channel coordinates including the client external IP address, the client data port number, a server internal IP address and a server data port number.||02-12-2009|
