The present invention relates to a method and a framework that automatically and dynamically derives a misuseability score for every IT component (e.g., PC, laptop, server, router, smartphone, and user or any other element that can be connected to organization network or to the internet). The dynamic framework of the present invention supports the risk analysis process. The misuseability score encapsulates the potential damage that can be caused to the organization in case that an asset is compromised and misused, for example, as part of a cyber-attack.

Abstract Abstract Abstract The invention is a device for up-conversion of Short Wavelength Infra-Red (SWIR) images into visible images. The device comprises a sub micrometer thickness structure that is composed of several sub-layers, each having a typical thickness of tens to hundreds of nanometers. The device is composed of two main sections one on top of the other: (a) a highly efficient SWIR absorption thin layer and (b) a highly efficient organic light emitted diode (OLED). The generated visible image is emitted from the OLED through a top transparent cathode, which is deposited on the OLED.

A method for performing optical constellation conversion, according to which each received symbol from a constellation of input symbols is optically split into M components and each component is multiplied by a first predetermined different complex weighing factor, to achieve M firstly weighted components with different amplitudes. Then a nonlinear processor optically performs a nonlinear transform on each M firstly weighted components, so as to obtain M outputs which are linearly independent, Finally, a linear processor optically performs a linear transform to obtain a new converted constellation by optically multiplying, in the complex plane, each of the M outputs by a second predetermined different complex weighing factor, to achieve M secondly weighted components and then summing the M secondly weighted components.
