    Intel® Advanced Encryption Standard New Instructions (Intel® AES-NI)

    AES (Advanced Encryption Standard), an encryption standard adopted by the U.S. government is widely used across the software ecosystem to protect network traffic, personal data, and corporate IT infrastructure. AES-NI were designed to implement some of the complex and performance intensive steps of the AES algorithm using hardware and thus accelerating the execution of the AES algorithms.

    Intel® Anti-Theft (Intel® AT)

    Laptops with the 2nd generation Intel® Core™ and 2nd generation Intel® Core™ vPro™ processor families with Intel® Anti-Theft Technology (Intel® AT) provide intelligent protection of lost or stolen assets. Intel AT provides the ability to disable a PC with a local or remote "poison pill" if the system is lost or stolen. This poison pill can delete essential cryptographic material from system hardware in order to disable access to encrypted data stored on the hard drive.


    Intel® IPT

    Intel® Identity Protection Technology (Intel® IPT). Intel has built two-factor authentication directly into the processors of select 2nd generation Intel® Core™ processor-based PCs, helping to prevent unauthorized access to important personal accounts. Intel IPT allows vendors to store their OTP algorithms inside the processor itself, in a secure chipset called the Manageability Engine (ME). Intel's hardware solution eliminates the complexity and unstable nature of OTP software solutions, as well as the user-dependent problems of tokens.

  • POWER EFFICIENT PERFORMANCE
  • At the heart of the many features and capabilities of Intel vPro systems are the latest Intel® Core™ vPro™ processors. These processors provide outstanding performance while still delivering power efficiency. Review the features below and visit the Parallel Programming Community for additional threading support.


    INTEL® HYPER-THREADING TECHNOLOGY

    Intel® Hyper-Threading Technology (Intel® HT Technology)1 uses processor resources more efficiently, enabling multiple threads to run on each core. Intel® HT Technology increases processor throughput, improving overall performance on threaded software. Intel HT Technology is available on Previous Generation Intel® Core™ processors, 2nd generation Intel® Core™ processor family, and Intel® Xeon® processor family.

    An Intel® processor and chipset combined with an OS and BIOS supporting Intel HT Technology allows you to:

    • Run demanding applications simultaneously while maintaining system responsiveness
    • Keep systems more secure, efficient, and manageable while minimizing impact on productivity
    • Provide headroom for future business growth and new solution capabilities
     

    Introduction to Hyper-threading ›

    1 Available on select Intel® Core™ processors. Requires an Intel® Hyper-Threading Technology (Intel® HT Technology) enabled system. Consult your PC manufacturer. Performance will vary depending on the specific hardware and software used. For more information including details on which processors support HT Technology, visit www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/architecture-and-technology/hyper-threading/hyper-threading-technology.html.


    TURBO BOOST

    Intel has optimized Intel® Turbo Boost Technology2 to provide even more performance when needed on 2nd Generation Intel® Core™ processor based systems. Intel® Turbo Boost Technology 2.0 automatically allows processor cores to run faster than the base operating frequency if it's operating below power, current, and temperature specification limits. Intel Turbo Boost Technology 2.0 is activated when the Operating System (OS) requests the highest processor performance state (P0).

    The maximum frequency of Intel Turbo Boost Technology 2.0 is dependent on the number of active cores. The amount of time the processor spends in the Intel Turbo Boost Technology 2.0 state depends on the workload and operating environment.

    Any of the following can set the upper limit of Intel Turbo Boost Technology 2.0 on a given workload:

    • Number of active cores
    • Estimated current consumption
    • Estimated power consumption
    • Processor temperature

    When the processor is operating below these limits and the user's workload demands additional performance, the processor frequency will dynamically increase until the upper limit of frequency is reached. Intel Turbo Boost Technology 2.0 has multiple algorithms operating in parallel to manage current, power, and temperature to maximize performance and energy efficiency. Note: Intel Turbo Boost Technology 2.0 allows the processor to operate at a power level that is higher than its rated upper power limit (TDP) for short durations to maximize performance.

    2 Intel® Turbo Boost technology requires a PC with a processor with Intel Turbo Boost capability. Intel Turbo Boost performance varies depending on hardware, software and overall system configuration. Check with your PC manufacturer on whether your system delivers Intel Turbo Boost technology. See www.intel.com/technology/turboboost for more information.

Whether you’re developing 3rd Generation Intel® Core™ processor-based applications for networked systems, or creating tools for smaller businesses, this is the place for all your technical content needs.

SCCM 2012 Out Of Band
By Lee W.1
Good morning,  I have a test environment where i am trying to configure SCCM 2012 and OOB.  I have configured the OOB service and logged into the IME and configured it with the correct HASHS and enabled the network. When trying to provision the AMT sccm logs: DoConnectToAMTDevice: Failed to establish tcp session to 192.168.0.13:16993 I can connect via the web browser on 16992 but not 16993 - I have attached my amtopmgr.log file, as you can see at the top it connects once and detects the AMT but it then reverts back to undiscovered.  Any help would be appreciated.  Thanks, Lee    
Where to get CA plugin option?

AMT ports are closed
By acrg7
Hi.  We have an Intel S1200BT based system and we are unable to access Intel AMT on TCP ports 16992 or 16993.  We're able to access the BMC web interface on port 80, use the Java based remote console (port 7578), perform IPMI requests, and access the SMASH-CLP console, but for some reason AMT seems to have its WS-Management ports disabled?  A basic telnet connection attempt to ports 16992 and 16993 results in "Connection refused". This system is in a hosted environment and we've never physically seen or configured it.  Is it possible the hosting provider has not configured AMT correctly?  What is required to enable Intel AMT? Thanks in advance.
