For people wanting to learn more about Intel Technologies, the Intel Developer Forum (IDF) is a great place to meet engineers and have an in-depth look at many of the cool new technologies Intel is working on.

The Cathedral and the Bazaar, the DTK's software development process
By ylian-saint-hilaire (Intel) Posted on 08/27/07 7
Instead of blogging about the Intel AMT Developer Tool Kit (DTK), I wanted to chat about another question that is often talked about within Intel, the software development process used by the DTK. It's not often that any software at Intel is developed like the DTK, updated every few weeks externa...

In the latest release of the Intel AMT DTK v0.36, Sandeep added TLS (also known as HTTPS) support on the Intel AMT side of Switchbox.

The Intel AMT DTK v0.35 was just posted.

This is going to be really useful for fixing the more complicated bugs being reported. I j...

By ylian-saint-hilaire (Intel) Posted on 07/24/07 0
IDE redirect is one of the most power features of Intel AMT, but as I blogged about before, it's also not well suited for use over the Internet. Commands that usually flow over short and very high speed SATA cable are now sent over the Internet with much lower bandwidth and much higher latency. I...
