  • What is Intel® Secure Key Technology?


    Intel® Secure Key, was previously code-named Bull Mountain Technology. It is the Intel® name for the Intel® 64 and IA-32 Architectures instruction RDRAND and its underlying Digital Random Number Generator (DRNG) hardware implementation. Among other things, the DRNG using the RDRAND instruction is useful for generating high-quality keys for cryptographic protocols.
