Export the Audit Log Signature

The following steps describe how to export the Audit log signature.  Starting in Release 8.0, setting the signing key material is not a prerequisite to defining an Audit Log feature but it is a prerequisite to exporting the Audit Log Signature.  Therefore, ensure that the signing key material is set before invoking this or the action will fail.

1.  Retrieve the instance of AMT_AuditLog, where the “Name” key equals “Intel(r) AMT:Audit Log”.

2.  Invoke AMT_AuditALog.ExportAuditLogSignature.


   To ensure you retrieve the correct signature, Intel recommends that you wrap the ExportAuditSignature method with the lock and unlock methods (see Lock and Unlock the Audit Log).

   Support for SHA1 was implemented in Release 4.0 and deprecated in Release 11.0.

   Support for SHA2-256 and SHA2-384 was implemented in Release 6.0..

$auditLogRef =$wsmanConnectionObject.NewReference("SELECT * FROM AMT_AuditLog WHERE Name='Intel(r) AMT:Audit Log'")

$inputObject =$auditLogRef.CreateMethodInput("ExportAuditLogSignature")


$outputObject =$auditLogRef.InvokeMethod($inputObject)

$returnValue =$outputObject.GetProperty("ReturnValue")

if($returnValue -like "0")


    $totalRecordCount =$outputObject.GetProperty("TotalRecordCount")

    $signatureMechanism =$outputObject.GetProperty("SignatureMechanism")

    $signature =$outputObject.GetProperty("Signature")

    $uuid =$outputObject.GetProperty("UUID")

    $fqdn =$outputObject.GetProperty("FQDN")

    $lengthOfCertificates =$outputObject.GetProperty("LengthOfCertificates")
