Classes

AMT_WiFiPortConfigurationService

 

Provides management of the Wi-Fi network interfaces associated with a Wi-Fi network port. This class is responsible for all of the wireless profile operations such as add, update and delete all profiles.

Static

1

CIM_WiFiPortCapabilities

 

Describes the capabilities of a WiFiPort.

Static

1

CIM_WiFiPort

 

 

The logical representation of wireless local area network communications hardware that conforms to the IEEE 802.11 series of specifications. It embodies properties at the lowest layers of a network stack, such as the antennas used for transmission and reception, the address permanently embedded into the hardware, and the operational bandwidth of the device.

Static

1

CIM_WiFiEndpointCapabilities

Describes the capabilities of a WiFiEndpoint.

Static

1

CIM_WiFiEndpoint

 

A wireless communication endpoint which, when its associated interface device is associated with an IEEE 802.11 wireless LAN, may send and receive data frames.

Static

1

CIM_WiFiEndpointSettings

 

Describes setting data that can be applied to an instance of CIM_WiFiEndpoint to enable it to associate to a particular Wi-Fi network.

Implicit

0 to 24 (16 IT profiles and

8 User profiles)

CIM_IEEE8021xCapabilities

 

Describes the IEEE 802.1x security capabilities of a layer 2 ProtocolEndpoint.

Static

1

CIM_IEEE8021xSettings

 

Specifies a set of IEEE 802.1x Port-Based Network Access Control settings that can be applied to ISO OSI layer 2 ProtocolEndpoint.

Implicit

0 to 24 (one for each profile created)

AMT_PublicKeyCertificate

 

Represents a X.509 Certificate in the Intel AMT CertStore. This class may be associated to CIM_IEEE8021xSettings instance.

User

0 to 11 (4 root certificates; 7 client certificates)

AMT_PublicPrivateKeyPair

 

Represents a public-private key in the Intel AMT CertStore. This class may be associated to AMT_PublicKeyCertificate when it is a personal certificate of the Intel AMT machine.

User

0 to 7

Associations

CIM_ElementSettingData

Associates between CIM_WiFiEndpoint and CIM_WiFiEndpointSettings.

Implicit

*

CIM_DeviceSAPImplementation

An association between a Service Access Point (SAP) and how it is implemented.

Static

*

CIM_ConcreteComponent

A generic association used to establish “part of” relationships between ManagedElements.

Static/Implicit

*

CIM_ElementCapabilities

Represents the association between ManagedElements and their capabilities.

Static

*

CIM_HostedService

Associates between the Intel AMT CIM_ComputerSystem and AMT_WiFiPortConfigurationService.

Static

*

CIM_ServiceAffectsElement

Represents an association between a service and the ManagedElements that might be affected by its execution.

Static

*

CIM_ConcreteDependency

A generic association used to establish dependency relationships between ManagedElements.

Static

*

CIM_CredentialContext

This relationship defines a context (e.g., a System or Service) of a Credential.

Implicit

*

* Multiple instances

** Instance Creation:

     Implicit: Instances created implicitly by Intel AMT in response to a user CIM operation

     Static: Instances created by Intel AMT on initialization

     User: The class supports create/delete
