Title
(EN) REMOTE COMPUTER CONFIGURATION SCANNING
(FR) EXPLORATION A DISTANCE DE LA CONFIGURATION D'UN ORDINATEUR
Abstract
(EN)
A system for detecting and forwarding, across the Internet to a third-party, configuration data detected from a user's computer, which user is a visitor to the third party's web site. In one configuration, apparatus for the remote scanning of configuration data relating to hardware or software installed in or as part of a user's computer system includes means for downloading a software-based scanning module from a provider's server to a user's computer system, the scanning module including means for determining preselected items of configuration data from the user's computer system and conveying said configuration data to the provider's server, and means for forwarding said configuration data to a client's server. The pre-selection of items of configuration data to be collected may be predetermined by the client to the provider. The user may be enabled to verify and authorise the forwarding of the information to the client's server by the provider's server.

L'invention concerne un système permettant de détecter et de retransmettre, à une tierce partie par l'intermédiaire d'Internet, des données de configuration détectées à partir de l'ordinateur d'un utilisateur visitant le site Web de ladite tierce partie. Dans une configuration, un appareil servant à l'exploration à distance des données de configuration relatives aux éléments matériels ou logiciels installés dans un système informatique d'un utilisateur, ou faisant partie de ce système, comprend des moyens pour télécharger un module logiciel d'exploration à partir du serveur d'un fournisseur vers le système informatique de l'utilisateur, ledit module d'exploration comprenant des moyens pour déterminer des articles présélectionnés de données de configuration à partir du système informatique de l'utilisateur et transmettre ces données de configuration au serveur du fournisseur, ainsi que des moyens pour retransmettre lesdites données de configuration vers le serveur d'un client. La présélection des articles de données de configuration à collecter peut être prédéterminée par le client au niveau du fournisseur. L'utilisateur peut être autorisé à vérifier et à permettre la retransmission des informations vers le serveur du client par le serveur du fournisseur.
