CIM Elements

The following table describes the CIM elements used to implement the Transport Layer Security feature.

Cardinality

Classes

AMT_TLSProtocolEndpoint

A communication point from which data may be sent or received. ProtocolEndpoints link system/computer interfaces to LogicalNetworks.

Static

1 for each AMT_TLSSettingData instance

AMT_TLSProtocolEndpointCollection

This class connects the two instances of AMT_TLSProtocolEndpoint and can be used in order to enable/disable TLS in the system.

Static

1

AMT_TLSSettingData

Represents configuration-related and operational parameters for the TLS service in the Intel AMT.

Static

1 for the local interface and 1 for the network interface

Associations

AMT_TLSCredentialContext

Represents the credential of the TLSProtocolEndpointCollection, by connecting a certificate to the service. Associates between AMT_PublicKeyCertificate and  AMT_TLSProtocolEndpointCollection.

User

1

CIM_HostedAccessPoint

CIM_HostedAccessPoint is an association between a Service Access Point and the System on which it is provided. The cardinality of this association is one-to-many and is weak with respect to the System. Each System can host many Service Access Points. Heuristic: If the implementation of the Service Access Point is modeled, it must be implemented by a Device or Software Feature that is part of the System that is hosting the Service Access Point.

Static

2

CIM_ElementSettingData

Represents the association between Managed Elements and applicable setting data. This association also describes whether this is a default or current setting.

Static

2

** 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
