Has your IT organization felt the need for accurate asset management, reduced downtime with fewer deskside visits, and improved malware prevention and response? Want a solution for out-of-band manageability and security when the PC is in a low-power state or even powered off, the operating system is unresponsive, or software agents are disabled? Active Platform Management Demystified describes the manageability and security features in PCs equipped with Intel(r) vPro Technology which includes Intel(r) Active Management Technology (Intel(r) AMT). It goes into detail about how Intel AMT eases the burden of maintaining, managing and protecting PCs in both the Enterprise and Small Business environments according to Christoph Graham, Hewlett-Packard Technical Strategist, and will be very useful to anyone delivering Intel AMT solutions. Intel Active Management Technology provides an access point for the latest management consoles from Microsoft, Altiris, Cisco, LANDesk, HP and others so IT practitioners can access PCs over a wired or corporate wireless network- or even outside the corporate firewall through a wired LAN connection.This book keeps things clear and simple, even when discussing out-of-band operational details on IDE-Redirect and heuristic filters. The explanations illustrated using the Developer s Tool Kit are especially useful says Javier Caceres of Aranda Software Corporation.

Platform Embedded Security Technology Revealed is an in-depth introduction to Intel’s platform embedded solution: the security and management engine. The engine is shipped inside most Intel platforms for servers, personal computers, tablets, and smartphones. The engine realizes advanced security and management functionalities and protects applications’ secrets and users’ privacy in a secure, light-weight, and inexpensive way. Besides native built-in features, it allows third-party software vendors to develop applications that take advantage of the security infrastructures offered by the engine. Intel’s security and management engine is technologically unique and significant, but is largely unknown to many members of the tech communities who could potentially benefit from it. Platform Embedded Security Technology Revealed reveals technical details of the engine. The engine provides a new way for the computer security industry to resolve critical problems resulting from booming mobile technologies, such as increasing threats against confidentiality and privacy. This book describes how this advanced level of protection is made possible by the engine, how it can improve users’ security experience, and how third-party vendors can make use of it. It's written for computer security professionals and researchers; embedded system engineers; and software engineers and vendors who are interested in developing new security applications on top of Intel’s security and management engine. It’s also written for advanced users who are interested in understanding how the security features of Intel’s platforms work.

Detecting Peripheral Based Attacks On The Host Memory

This work addresses stealthy peripheral-based attacks on host computers and presents a new approach to detecting them. Peripherals can be regarded as separate systems that have a dedicated processor and dedicated runtime memory to handle their tasks. The book addresses the problem that peripherals generally communicate with the host via the host’s main memory, storing cryptographic keys, passwords, opened files and other sensitive data in the process – an aspect attackers are quick to exploit. Here, stealthy malicious software based on isolated micro-controllers is implemented to conduct an attack analysis, the results of which provide the basis for developing a novel runtime detector. The detector reveals stealthy peripheral-based attacks on the host’s main memory by exploiting certain hardware properties, while a permanent and resource-efficient measurement strategy ensures that the detector is also capable of detecting transient attacks, which can otherwise succeed when the applied strategy only measures intermittently. Attackers exploit this strategy by attacking the system in between two measurements and erasing all traces of the attack before the system is measured again.
