Developers Guide to the Sample Setup and Configuration Application

The sample Setup and Configuration Application (SCA) is a program that can be
used by developers as a learning vehicle for creating setup and configuration solutions for
platforms incorporating Intel® Active Management Technology (Intel® AMT).
Topics covered by this Guide:
1. The enterprise setup and configuration process required by Intel AMT
2. How to use the SCA
3. How to configure the SCA
4. The internal elements of the SCA

  • Release 1.0 Host Interface Design Guide

    This document describes the Intel® Active Management Technology (Intel® AMT) Release 1.0
    Host Information Interface APIs, which are provided to Independent Software Vendors (ISV) for
    their applications. These APIs allow an ISV application to collect information about Intel AMT in the
    “OS-present” state. NOTE: This interface is an Intel AMT Release 1.0 interface. It is supported for Intel AMT Release
    2.0 or later releases only when configured for Legacy Mode. For interfaces supported by Intel AMT
    Release 2.0 and later releases refer to the Network Interface Guide.

  • Integration with Microsoft Windows Active Directory

    Intel® Active Management Technology (Intel® AMT), starting with Release 2.0 provides for a standard and
    single-sign-on style of authentication by integrating its authentication framework with Microsoft
    Windows* Active Directory. This document provides an overview of Kerberos, a description of the salient features of Active
    Directory, and the steps required to integrate Intel AMT with Active Directory. It includes an
    example of setting up Active Directory and the Sample Configuration Application to configure an
    Intel AMT device to work with Kerberos.

  • Posture Validation Server Sample

    Intel® Active Management Technology (Intel® AMT) Release 2.5 and later releases can generate
    posture messages that are compatible with the Cisco* Network Admission Control (NAC) system.
    In support of this feature, the Intel® vPro™ Kit includes a NAC Posture Plug-In that, in
    conjunction with a Cisco Trusted Agent (CTA) running on the host computer, forwards posture
    information to an Authentication, Authorization, and Admission (AAA) server (an alias of an
    Admission Control Server, or ACS). This mode of operation is called “passive mode”.
