Download the latest Intel® AMT Software Development Kit (SDK)

Thank you for your interest in the Intel® Active Management Technology (Intel® AMT) Software Development Kit. The Intel® AMT SDK (Software Development Kit) contains the building blocks and documentation material needed to develop software that interacts with Intel® AMT systems.


Intel® Active Management Technology (Intel® AMT) is a capability embedded in Intel-based platforms that enhances the ability of IT organizations to manage enterprise computing facilities. Intel AMT operates independently of the platform processor and operating system. Remote platform management applications can access Intel AMT securely, even when the platform is turned off, as long as the platform is connected to line power and to a network. Independent software vendors (ISVs) can build applications that take advantage of the features of Intel AMT using the application programming interface (API).

The Intel AMT SDK includes the Intel® AMT High Level API (Intel AMT HLAPI) as well as the Intel vPro Platform Solution Manager. The Intel AMT HLAPI provides a very simple and consistent API across all Intel AMT versions/SKUs enabling software developers to easily build support for Intel AMT features into their applications. For more information, see the HLAPI documentation.  The Intel vPro Platform Solution Manager is a Management console that was built from the Intel AMT High Level APIs. The source code is included in this package.

New Features included with Intel AMT/SDK Release 10:

MOFs and XSL Files

The MOFs and XSL files in the \DOCS\WS-Management directory and the class reference in the documentation are updated to version

OOB Screen Blanking

The ability to remotely blank out the client remote console screen during updates and administrative activities was added in the HLAPI and the KVM application tool.

New WS Eventing and Pet Table Argument Fields

Addition arguments were added to the CILA alerts to provide the reason for the UI connection and the hostname which generated the alert.

Updated Real VNC

The Real VNC version has been updated to v1.2.5 in Linux and KVM.

Updated Root Certificate Length

The supported root certificate length has been extended to 2500 bytes.

Windows Connected Standby / Instant Go Support

Windows connected standby, also known as Instant Go, operations are supported on Windows 7 and above.  Intel AMT support uses the term power saving state and generates UNS events. This capability was also added in the HLAPI.

Graceful Power Operation Support

Graceful power operations are supported on Windows Vista, 7, and 8 32 and 64-bit platforms, including from Windows 8 connected standby / Instant Go, and generate UNS events. This capability was also added in the HLAPI.

Secured FQDN Provisioning Support

Provisioning in both Admin and Client Control Modes with secured FQDN is now supported.


  • WLAN provisioning with USB Key will not allow TLS enablement on LAN-less platforms in Intel AMT Release 9.5.
  • The C++ samples fail to compile on Windows* 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 due to a bug in the Windows SDK function mt.exe. For further information and workaround see the Windows 7 SDK: Beta Release Notes. Note that a file compiled on other Windows operating systems, such as XP or Vista, will also execute on Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2.
  • The "Configure Default KVM Port" script sets the RFB password. This script contains WinRM commands and may change the user's WinRM configuration.
  • Microsoft WinRM - Intel AMT interrupt on associations: The WinRM client fails to perform a retrieval or delete of an instance of an association class using an EPR when its selectors are also EPRs. An example where this capability is needed in Intel AMT is the System Defense association AMT_ActiveFilterStatistics.
  • Redirection library provides AES 256 cipher suites as an option although only AES 128 ciphers are supported by Intel AMT.
  • UCT Tool: Cannot delete or update the application settings file while the application is running.
  • Because of limitations within the Tight VNC application (a third-party application for KVM), asterisks will not appear when entering the opt-in code. In addition, while Intel AMT will respond to keyboard and mouse actions, these will not show in the client until the user refreshes the display.
  • Samples and other applications which use signed dll are loaded very slowly. This can occur because .NET Framework repeatedly attempts to verify the signed DLL files, even when there is no internet connection.

Known Issues:

    1. Redirection library: The Linux version of the redirection library does not support IDER over DVD.
    2. Redirection library: Cannot write a to floppy diskette.
    3. Redirection library: Trying to connect without first configuring the CIRA settings may result in a Timeout error after the CIRA settings are configured.
    4. Redirection library: The IDER session may close unexpectedly in the following scenario:  IDER and SOL sessions are open and sending data from the console to the Intel AMT in S3.  The user then wakes up the Intel AMT to S0 and during the wake up, the user enables the IDER registers.
    5. KVM: The KVM Control application uses the firmware version to determine how many display pipes are supported, rather than how many are actually available.
    6. KVM:  When working with Linux library and using the scancode extension, the caps lock; number lock and Alt+ key events on the console side are not forwarded to the server.
    7. KVM:  When opening the Windows Start menu on a remote console, the menu opens on both the management and remote consoles when KVMControlApplication is implemented over default or redirection ports.
    8. KVM:  Rapid changes in display color levels while a KVM session is running could result in a session disconnection.  Restart the KVM session to reconnect.
    9. KVM:  A KVM session may return a 404 error resulting in a session disconnect .  This can occur after sending HTTP traffic over CIRA and wireless connection or if the KVM session is left open but inactive.  Restart the KVM session to reconnect.
    10. WS-EVENTING:  In AMT 5.2 the HLAPI does not parse the header to 63 characters.  As a result,  when a long string is entered, the HLAPI will fail to create a subscription.
