Overview
Bottom rule

Toshiba CHEC eBOSS V6.7 is part of the CHEC software product offerings that support Toshiba Self Checkout. CHEC eBOSS enables retailers to remove the BOSS server from each store and centralize the BOSS capabilities on a single server at the retailer's central office for their enterprise. CHEC eBOSS V6.7 is enhanced to complement a powerful set of new features at the self-checkout lane that make self-checkout faster, easier, and more intuitive than ever before. These enhancements are described in Software Announcement 214-004, dated January 14, 2014 .

CHEC eBOSS offers retailers the choice to choose between an in-store BOSS (one per store), or a single centralized BOSS (eBOSS). With eBOSS, retailers can centralize the administration of shopper assistants, reports, user management, quick-lookup produce screens, and item security data. eBOSS provides a single enterprise-wide DB2® database that can be used to more deeply analyze the performance of self-checkout stores against key performance indicators.

CHEC eBOSS communicates to the self checkout lanes that utilize CHEC Client Application. In addition to the separate purchase of eBOSS server software for the central server, an eBOSS client connection license must be purchased for each self checkout lane using CHEC Client Application to connect to the Enterprise BOSS.

Server

Server is a unit of measure by which the program can be licensed. A server is a physical computer that is comprised of processing units, memory, and input/output capabilities and that executes requested procedures, commands, or applications for one or more users or client devices. Where racks, blade enclosures, or other similar equipment is being employed, each separable physical device (for example, a blade or a rack-mounted device) that has the required components is considered itself a separate server. For the purpose of server-based licensing, licensee must obtain entitlements for each server that is made available to the program, regardless of the number of processor cores and partitions in the server or the number of copies of the program on the server.

Notes:

Client device

Client device is a unit of measure by which the program can be licensed. A client device is a single-user computing device or special-purpose sensor or telemetry device that requests the execution of or receives for execution a set of commands, procedures, or applications from or provides data to another computer system that is typically referred to as a server or is otherwise managed by the server. Multiple client devices may share access to a common server. A client device may have some processing capability or be programmable to allow a user to do work. Examples include, but are not limited to, actuators, appliances, automated teller machines, automatic meter readers, cash registers, disk drives, desktop computers, kiosks, notebook computers, personal digital assistants, point-of-sale terminals, sensors, smart meters, tape drives, and technical workstations. Licensee must obtain entitlements for every client device that runs, provides data to, uses services provided by, or otherwise accesses the program and for every other computer or server on which the program is installed.

Statement of good security practices
Bottom rule

IT system security involves protecting systems and information through prevention, detection, and response to improper access from within and outside your enterprise. Improper access can result in information being altered destroyed or misappropriated or can result in misuse of your systems to attack others. Without a comprehensive approach to security, no IT system or product should be considered completely secure and no single product or security measure can be completely effective in preventing improper access. Toshiba systems and products are designed to be part of a comprehensive security approach, which will necessarily involve additional operational procedures, and may require other systems, products, or services to be most effective. Toshiba does not warrant that systems and products are immune from the malicious or illegal conduct of any party.
