The list below provides information about diesel retrofit technologies that EPA has approved or conditionally approved for use in engine retrofit programs. It also shows the percent reduction (of verified or tested levels) that EPA will recognize for emission reductions for each technology.
Over the past decade, technologies have made unprecedented impacts on improving supply chain freight efficiency. The SmartWay Technology Program has verified numerous innovative technologies, which fleets are adopting because of their rapid return on investment.
EPA-verified technologies save fuel and reduce emissions for tractors, trailers, and locomotives. EPA verifies aerodynamic devices, idling reduction equipment, and new and retread low rolling resistance tires. EPA also designates tractors and trailers equipped with certain combinations of EPA-verified technologies as SmartWay Tractors and Trailers.

The authors analyzed 153 cases of histologically verified intracranial germ cell tumors. The histological diagnosis was germinoma in 63 patients (41.2%), teratoma in 30 (19.6%), and other types of tumors in 60 patients (39.2%). The patients were treated by a consistent policy of surgical removal with histological verification followed by radiation therapy with or without chemotherapy. The 10- and 20-year survival rates of patients with pure germinoma were 92.7% and 80.6%, respectively. The 10-year survival rates of patients with mature teratoma and malignant teratoma were 92.9% and 70.7%, respectively. Patients with pure malignant germ cell tumors (embryonal carcinoma, yolk sac tumor, or choriocarcinoma) had a 3-year survival rate of 27.3%. The mixed tumors were divided into three subgroups: 1) mixed germinoma and teratoma; 2) mixed tumors whose predominant characteristics were germinoma or teratoma combined with some elements of pure malignant tumors; and 3) mixed tumors with predominantly pure malignant elements. The 3-year survival rates were 94.1% for the first group, 70% for the second group, and 9.3% for the third group, and the differences were statistically significant. Twenty-six patients with malignant tumors received chemotherapy that consisted of cisplatin and carboplatin combinations with or without radiation therapy. However, chemotherapy was not significantly more effective than radiation therapy alone. From these treatment results, the authors classified tumors into three groups with different prognoses and proposed a treatment guideline appropriate for the subgroups.
While Chromium OS does as much as possible to guard against such remote andlocal breaches, no software system is impervious to successful attacks.Therefore, it is important that the attacker cannot continue to \"own\" a machinethrough permanent, local changes. To that end, on boot, the firmware and otheraccessible regions of the system internals are verified to be in a known goodstate. If they aren't, then the firmware recovery process will be initiated (orthe user can request permission to proceed, which would make sense in the caseof a development install, for example).
As outlined in the Firmware Boot and Recovery document, verification will occurin several places. Initially, the small read-only stub code will compute a SHA-2hash (either with internal code or using a provided SHA-2 accelerator) of theread-write portion of the firmware. An RSA signature of this hash will then beverified using a permanently stored public key (of,ideally,2048 bits or more).
The read-write firmware is then responsible for computing hashes of any othernon-volatile memory and the kernel that will be executed. It will contain itsown subkey and a list of cryptographic hashes for the data to be verified:kernel, initrd, master boot record, and so on. These additional hashes will besigned by the subkey so that they may be updated without requiring thewrite-protected key to be used for every update. (Note, the kernel+initrd signedhashes may be stored with the kernel+initrd on disk to avoid needing a firmwareupdate when they change.)
Instead of performing full file system verification in advance, it can be doneon demand from a verified kernel. A transparent block device will be layeredbetween the run-time system and all running processes. It will be configuredduring kernel startup using either in-kernel code changes or from afirmware-verified initial ramdisk image. Each block that is accessed via thetransparent block device layer will be checked against a cryptographic hashwhich is stored in a central collection of hashes for the verifiable blockdevice. This may be in a standalone partition or trailing the filesystem on theverifiable block device.
Initially, blocks will be 4KB in size. For a root file system of roughly 75MB,there will be roughly 19,200 SHA-1 hashes. On current x86 and ARM based systems,computing the SHA-1 hash of 4KB takes between 0.2ms and 0.5ms. There will beadditional overhead (TBD) incurred by accessing the correct block hash andcomparing the cryptographic digests. Once verified, blocks should live in thepage cache above the block layer. This will mean that verification does notoccur on every read event. To further amortize time-costs, the block hashes willbe segmented into logical bundles of block hashes. Each bundle will be hashed.The subsequent list of bundle hashes will then be hashed. This layering can berepeated as needed to build a tree. The final, single hash will be hard codedinto the kernel or supplied through a device interface from a trusted initialRAM disk.
While verified boot can ensure that the system image (i.e. firmware, kernel,root file system) are protected against tampering by attackers, it can't protectdata that must inherently be modifiable by a running system. This includes userdata, but also system-wide state such as system configuration (network, timezone, keyboard layout, etc.), cached data maintained by the system (VPDcontents, metrics and crash reporting data, etc.). This state is generally kepton the writable stateful file system. In some cases, it is consumed by the bootprocess and may affect the behavior of the (verified) software. If an attackermanages to place malicious data on the stateful file system that will cause theverified code to \"take a wrong turn\", they may cause inadvertent side effectsthat may ultimately lead to the system getting exploited and thus defeatingverified boot. The Hardening against malicious statefuldatadocument discusses details and mitigations.
For Chromium OS, the autoupdater will update the collection of hashes specificto the partition it is updating. In general, the complete collection of hashesfor a specific partition will be generated by running a lightweight utilitydirectly on the filesystem image. It will walk the origin block device and emitan image file that contains the properly formatted hash collection. In addition,it will emit the SHA-1 hash of the bundle hashes. This will be the authoritativehash that will need to be either signed or stored in a signed/verified location,such as in the kernel. The resulting file can either be appended to thefilesystem image or stored in a standalone partition (hash partition). Onupdate, a direct difference of the new hash collection can be taken using bsdiffagainst the last versions. However, it may be that more efficient differencegeneration approaches may be used as long as the end result is the same. 153554b96e
