Methods and systems are provided for enhanced communication cables configurable for distribution of data signals. Such communication cables may have leaky feeder structures, for use in the distribution of data signals. An example communication cable may be configured for supporting at least two separate functions, comprising distribution of data signals and at least one other different function. The communication cable may comprise a core conductor, an insulation shield, an outer conductor that comprises a plurality of apertures, a jacket, and an arrangement arranged at least along sections of a length of the cable, the arrangement being configured for supporting the at least one other different function. The one other different function may comprise illumination. The arrangement may comprise an illumination arrangement which may be arranged at least along sections of the length of the communication cable.


Methods and systems are provided for authentication in electronic devices using multi-level security schemes. In an electronic device, at each particular level of a plurality of security levels of a multi-level security scheme, one or more identifiers associated with the particular level may be read from a user-specific card; and for each identifier of the one or more identifiers, associated data for use in validating the identifier may be read from the user-specific card. The identifier may then be authenticated within the electronic device, using the associated data; or may be forwarded, based on the associated data, to a particular remote server for verification of the identifier. Each identifier may comprise one of: user identifier, operator identifier, and application identifier. An application associated with each identifier may be identified, and the application may be executed after a positive authentication of the identifier.

Systems and methods are provided for automatically detecting phishing attacks. Network traffic may be monitored to detected phishing attacks and/or identify phishing websites and/or target websites. The monitoring may comprise generating and analysing logs corresponding to the monitored network traffic, with the logs comprising network traffic events and/or information relating to requesting and responding addresses. The network traffic events used in detecting phishing attacks may comprise sequences each comprising one or more requests and responses. Requested websites may be identified as phishing websites based on event sequences meeting particular criteria. Components and/or functions utilized for monitoring the network traffic and/or automatic phishing detection based thereon may be implemented as parts of a browser and/or network routers utilized during typical and normal use operations.

Methods and systems are provided for image processing. A plurality of correlation parameters representing degrees of correlation between two or more images of a plurality of images may be determined. An optimized correlation dependency graph may be generated according to the plurality of correlation parameters. The plurality of images may then be delta encoded according to the optimized correlation dependency graph. For example, the optimized correlation dependency graph may be used for performing a predetermined correlation encoding operation. The plurality of correlation parameters may be determined, for example, in accordance with one or more predetermined correlation metrics associated with the predetermined correlation encoding operation.


Methods and systems for providing optimized communications links between at least two network nodes. Configuration data may be generated and exchanged between the two network nodes. Based on the configuration data, at least one signaling channel may be created by one of the two network nodes, via one of the available network interfaces between the two network nodes, and at least one data channel may be created, via one of the available network interfaces. The data channel may then be changed from one available network interface to another available network interface, based on monitoring of the plurality of available network interfaces and assessment of at least one performance related parameter of the available network interfaces.


Methods and systems are provided for providing location-specific services. A mobile device may receive from a broadcasting unit, geographic data corresponding to a service region associated with the broadcasting unit, with the geographic data defining a three-dimensional geographic space. A current three-dimensional geographic position of the mobile receiving device may be determined in the mobile receiving device; and based on the current three-dimensional geographic position of the mobile receiving device, presence of the mobile receiving device in the three-dimensional geographic space may be determined. A service provided in the three-dimensional geographic space may then be performed.
