Various embodiments herein each include at least one of systems, methods, and software for computer pre-boot security verification. Some embodiments are implemented during a boot sequence of a computer (210) that controls Self-Service Terminal (102) operation before a main Operating System (OS) of the computer (210) is loaded. One such embodiment in the form of a method (300) includes starting a pre-boot OS upon start of a computer that controls operation of an SST (step 302) and identifying any variances between a current state of the computer and data representative of a reference state within a computing environment of the pre-boot OS (step 304). This example method further includes performing at least one remedial action when any variance is identified (step 306) and launching a main OS and stopping and unloading the pre-boot OS when no variance is identified (step 308).

Various embodiments herein each include at least one of systems, devices, methods, and software for dynamic service extensibility. For example, some embodiments may be implemented or directed to providing process customizations in a singular form that it utilized across all device, application, and app platforms to reduce development, integration, and maintenance expense and effort. One embodiment in the form of a method includes receiving, from an application by an agent process (118 or 126) executing on a computing device on which the application executes, an extension script call and an argument (step 302). The method then retrieves and executes the extension script in view of the argument within a script execution environment of the agent process (118 or 126) to obtain result data (step 304) and returns the result data to the application (step 306).

A cable guide (705, 1000, or 1100) may include a flexible member. The flexible member may have a first endpoint (905 or 1015) and a second endpoint (910 or 1020). The flexible member may be curved about a central point (915 or 1095). When in a first state the flexible member may have a radius of curvature that continuously decreases towards the second endpoint (910 or 1020).


Various embodiments herein each include at least one of systems (100), methods (200 and 300), and software for self-service terminal technical state monitoring and alerting. One such embodiment in the form of a method performed on a computer of an SST (102), such as an ATM or self-checkout POS terminal, includes comparing at least one computer platform layer system configuration setting retrieved from a computer platform layer memory device of the SST (102) to respective expected values stored in a second memory device of the SST (102). The method may then transmit an alert via a network to an alert repository including data identifying the SST when the comparing identifies at least one of the computer platform layer system configuration values does not match a respective expected value.

A scanner (300) for scanning an item (302) positioned in a scan volume (304) can include: an electronically switchable mirror (306) configured to switch between a reflective state and a transmissive state, a plurality of mirrors (310, 312), and a camera (314) having a sensor. In a method for scanning the item, the scanner (300) can repeatedly: switch the switchable mirror (306) from the reflective state to the transmissive state, image a first field of view (316) of the item (302) onto the sensor with light that reflects from at least one mirror (310) and transmits through the switchable mirror (306), switch the switchable mirror (306) from the transmissive state to the reflective state, and image a second field of view (318) of the item (302) onto the sensor with light that reflects from at least one mirror (312) and reflects from the switchable mirror (306). In some examples, the scanner (300) can synchronize the switching of the switchable mirror (306) to a frame rate of the sensor.

One embodiment is in the form of a Self-Service Terminal (102), such as an automated teller machine (ATM). The terminal (102) includes a peripheral device (112), such as a cash dispenser, and a security controller device (106 or 108) including a memory device and a coupling to the peripheral device (113). The security controller device (106 or 108) is operable to perform data processing activities including receiving peripheral device identifying data from the peripheral device (112) and transmitting a public key (SC_(pk)) of the security controller device (106 or 108) to the peripheral device (112). The security controller (106 or 108) may then decrypt a received peripheral device encryption key (Ki) according to SC_(pk), generate a first security controller encryption key (Ke_(1)), and generate a first message authentication code key and encrypt the first message authentication code key according to Ke_(1) to obtain (Km_(1))Ke_(1). (Km_(1))Ke_(1) may then be stored in the memory device and transmitted to the peripheral device (112).
