Jeff's Notebook: The Developer’s Guide to Creating Intel® AMT Certificates for Intel® vPro™ clients

One of the great features of the latest Intel® vPro™ technology-based clients is that it supports the encryption of communications that an IT manager would have between the management console and the vPro client.  In order to enable this capability, a developer needs to work with a feature of vPro technology, called Intel® Active Management Technology (Intel® AMT).  Intel AMT is a capability embedded in Intel vPro technology based clients that enhance the ability of IT organizations to manage enterprise computing facilities. 

Using  the Transport Layer Security (TLS), Intel AMT supports the encryption of communications between the management console and clients.  Enabling TLS communications requires the creation of Intel AMT security certificates.  While developers may not be aware of this process, it is a straightforward process. 

Gael Hofemeier and Matt Gillespie have written a very thorough guide that gives developers the background and step-by-step procedures to create Intel AMT security certificates.   Read their guide to discover the step-by-step process.
