|This blog will describe the following Intel® vPro™ Technologies:
The 4th Generation Intel vPro Platforms address the following frustrations and concerns:
What is Intel ITP with PKI?
Intel IPT with PKI provides access point protection via a public key infrastructure (PKI). Many enterprises are already using PKI to protect their access points. Now they can benefit from Intel IPT with PKI which embeds a PKI certificate in the chipset, similar to the "One Time Password" credential. This provides a hardware-level security that can replace the traditional smart card or token storage options.Intel IPT provides a simple way for web sites and enterprises to validate that a user is logging in from a trusted PC. The Intel ITP software is supported on all IPT-capable systems based on the Intel® 6 Series chipset. See ipt.intel.com for more details on supported PCs. You can download the Intel IPT software here.
Important: For certain Intel Desktop Boards, Intel IPT requires certain BIOS versions to be installed prior to use:
What is Intel vPro with Location Based Services?
Intel has joined forces with AeroScout*, a leader in Location Based Services to deliver a Wi-Fi based indoor location service for Intel-based devices (4th Generation). There are two indoor location use-cases that are part of the MobileView software and AeroScout* has made the Software Development Kit available also.
What is Intel Pro Wireless Display?
Intel Pro WiDi brings the capability of Intel WiDi into the business environment. It allows users to show content from tablets, Ultrabook™ devices, and 2-in-1 devices on their conference-room displays without the hassle of wired connections. Intel Pro WiDi also brings enhanced security and IT manageability made possible by 4th generation Intel® Core™ vPro™ processors.
Intel WiDi supports the multi-display usages familiar to business users and follows the Miracast* Industry Standards. Intel Pro Widi offers the following:
For software developers who wish to design applications using Intel Pro Widi, there is a WiDi Extensions Library for Windows*7 and 8 applications and there are Operating System interfaces for device connections in Windows 8. There are 4 downloads that are part of the Intel Pro Wireless Display (the first 3 steps are required):
Hopefully, the above information will provide enough information to get developers started on implementing solutions using these new technologies.
