Intel® AMT supports the HTTP digest authentication method to authenticate the user before allowing administrative operations. In order to protect the Intel® AMT devices from BORE attacks (Break Once, Run Everywhere), it is recommended that each device is configured with a unique password. This approach would require the management solutions to maintain a database to map a device unique identifier to the Intel® AMT digest password. Specifically, when multiple management solutions are managing the Intel® AMT device, maintenance and synchronization of these credentials can be challenging. ISR-0001: Intel® AMT Digest Master Password is a recommendation to address the interoperability between multiple management solutions when using digest authentication.

Intel's compilers may or may not optimize to the same degree for non-Intel microprocessors for optimizations that are not unique to Intel microprocessors. These optimizations include SSE2, SSE3, and SSSE3 instruction sets and other optimizations. Intel does not guarantee the availability, functionality, or effectiveness of any optimization on microprocessors not manufactured by Intel. Microprocessor-dependent optimizations in this product are intended for use with Intel microprocessors. Certain optimizations not specific to Intel microarchitecture are reserved for Intel microprocessors. Please refer to the applicable product User and Reference Guides for more information regarding the specific instruction sets covered by this notice.
