Get the Default System Defense Policy


Default System Defense policies are available from Intel AMT release 4.x

The following steps describe how to get the default System Defense policy for an interface.

1.  Recover an EPR for an instance of CIM_EthernetPort for one of the valid DeviceID values:




     “Intel(r) AMT Ethernet Port 0” – wired port

     “Intel(r) AMT Ethernet Port 1” – wireless port

2.  Traverse AMT_NetworkPortDefaultSystemDefensePolicy, retrieving instances where the “Antecedent” property equals the selected CIM_EthernetPort EPR.

3.  For each instance of AMT_NetworkPortDefaultSystemDefensePolicy, examine the “Dependent” property to verify that it refers to an instance of AMT_SystemDefensePolicy.

4.  Perform AMT_SystemDefensePolicy.Get on this instance.

You can execute this snippet by inserting it into the execution template found here.


# Create a reference to the CIM_EthernetPort instance, select the wired interface.

$ethernetPortRef =$wsmanConnectionObject.NewReference("SELECT * FROM CIM_EthernetPort WHERE DeviceID='Intel(r) AMT Ethernet Port 0'")

$networkPortDefaultSystemDefensePolicyRef =$wsmanConnectionObject.NewReference("AMT_NetworkPortDefaultSystemDefensePolicy")


# Traverse to the AMT_NetworkPortDefaultSystemDefensePolicy instances that are connected to the CIM_EthernetPort instance.

foreach($networkPortDefaultSystemDefensePolicyItem in$networkPortDefaultSystemDefensePolicyRef.Enumerate("",$null))


    # For each instance, check if it is associated to the AMT_SystemDefensePolicy instance.



          # Get the AMT_SystemDefensePolicy object using its EPR.

          $systemDefensePolicyInstance =$networkPortDefaultSystemDefensePolicyItem.Object.GetProperty("Dependent").Ref.Get()
