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.

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.

Agile continues to be the most adopted software development methodology among organizations worldwide, but it generally hasn't integrated well with traditional security management techniques. And most security professionals aren’t up to speed in their understanding and experience of agile development. To help bridge the divide between these two worlds, this practical guide introduces several security tools and techniques adapted specifically to integrate with agile development. Written by security experts and agile veterans, this book begins by introducing security principles to agile practitioners, and agile principles to security practitioners. The authors also reveal problems they encountered in their own experiences with agile security, and how they worked to solve them. You’ll learn how to: Add security practices to each stage of your existing development lifecycle Integrate security with planning, requirements, design, and at the code level Include security testing as part of your team’s effort to deliver working software in each release Implement regulatory compliance in an agile or DevOps environment Build an effective security program through a culture of empathy, openness, transparency, and collaboration

Beginning with a basic primer on reverse engineering-including computer internals, operating systems, and assembly language-and then discussing the various applications of reverse engineering, this book provides readers with practical, in-depth techniques for software reverse engineering. The book is broken into two parts, the first deals with security-related reverse engineering and the second explores the more practical aspects of reverse engineering. In addition, the author explains how to reverse engineer a third-party software library to improve interfacing and how to reverse engineer a competitor's software to build a better product. * The first popular book to show how software reverse engineering can help defend against security threats, speed up development, and unlock the secrets of competitive products * Helps developers plug security holes by demonstrating how hackers exploit reverse engineering techniques to crack copy-protection schemes and identify software targets for viruses and other malware * Offers a primer on advanced reverse-engineering, delving into "disassembly"-code-level reverse engineering-and explaining how to decipher assembly language
