Jump start your software development for the Third Generation of Intel® CoreTM2 processor with vProTM technology. Get an overview of the Intel Active Management Technology (Intel AMT) and all new features in the Intel AMT 4.0/5.0. Register for this free event and take advantageof this great leaning & networking opportunity. The Bootcamp is mainly designed for the ISVs and software developers who are interested to enable/develop their own manageability/security applications for Intel vPro Technology.


This developer Bootcamp will be hosted using the Unisfair virtual conferencing capabilities. We will have plenty of options for you to network with fellow Independent Software Vendors, Intel technology experts, and manageability developers. The event will be live on Oct 15th (8AM-3PM PST). The focus of the presentations will be to talk about all the new and exciting features of the latest release, but there will be plenty of basic information to get you started on vPro and Intel AMT.


We are also going to have many ISVs demostrating their applications that support Intel vPro technology. Let me know if you any ideas to make this event more meaningful to you. Any and all suggestions are most welcome. Feel free to pass the informaiton about the Bootcamp along.


Looking forward to seeing you at the event.

Computer Scientists at Princeton University have shown some very easy and creative methods to hack

cryptographic key material with physical access to an encrypted

machine. Watch the video embedded below to find out how existing

technology is really vulnerable against Cold Boot Attacks on Encryption Keys.



All you need is a Duster spray can, if that, to cool the DRAM and extract the keys. The paper published

along with the video clearly outlines techniques for finding keys

residing in memory.The really cool part is that this technique doesn't

really hack into the encryption directly. Rather, it depends on

scanning the encryption keys by accessing the contents of the RAM and

then extracting the data either by directly tampering with the RAM or

by simply booting the computer from a USB drive. You can also read the

industry response and more details on these findings in the article.



It is not all bad news ... Intel is planning on releasing a

technology code named “Danbury” which drastically reduces exposure to

the Cold boot attacks. Please note that Danbury technology will be part of the Intel vPro processor technology to be released later this year. Danbury uses dedicated platform hardware to

provide full disk encryption and the actual data encryption keys are

not kept in the DRAM. Although, Intermediate, or ‘wrapping’, keys used

to unlock data encryption keys are stored in DRAM temporarily,

when the user is physically present or while remote IT operation has

control of the platform. These keys are subsequently deleted once no

longer needed, thus reducing the exposure significantly.



I am also very happy to announce that Danbury SDK that can leveraged

by software vendors to enhance encryption software will be made on the manageability developer community

later this year. If you are interested to find out more about this

technology or are interested in developing encryption software using

this technology then feel free to leave a comment on this post.



Watch this video series where a admired IT administrator teams up with a brilliant developer for a remote management solution. Where IT and Dev team up to battle the EVIL in order to deploy the right solution. There is action, drama, suspense .. and lots of fun. What else were you expecting "Romance"? Give it a peek and pass it along. Also, stop by the

Super Secret Organization





The super secret organization (SSO) is a elite covert services company where IT services and security issues are a matter of life and death. So begins the saga of a  Whiz Dev, a brilliant developer, and IT smith, a genius IT administrator. Whiz Dev and IT smith must depend on each other to defend their honor, their company and the best kept secrets. And, we have the bumbling interno who is constantly looking to enter this secret world.


Episode 1 "IT smith meets the bumbling interno"


Episode 2 "Whiz dev and IT smith"


Stay tuned for the episode 3 --- "The fate of SSO"

Jerome Esteban  (Senior Application Engineer) and Ylian Saint-Hilaire  (Senior Architect) are going to be talking about how to take advantage of Intel AMT to build manageability applications with built-in manageability and security. Intel AMT is a component of Intel vPro Processor Technology and Intel Centrino Processor Technology.



The goal of the NetSeminar is to discuss the Intel AMT use cases and what is new with Intel AMT 3.0. Additionally, we will cover the different developer resources such as the Intel AMT Software Developer Kit (SDK), and Intel AMT Developer Tool Kit (DTK), Set up and Configuration Service (SCS) that enables developers to easily take advantage of Intel AMT. This public event is open to anyone, sign up here



Date: Tuesday, September 25, 2007

Time: 9 am PT /12noon ET

Duration: 60 Minutes



I would love to know if you have any specific questions/topics you would like us to cover in this or future NetSeminars.



And, leave a comment if you plan to attend this event. thanks.



If you are interested in developing management applications that take advantage of Intel AMT then we have all the development tools & kits for you at the manageability developer community .


These are some tools that can be used when experimenting with or writing applications for Intel AMT. Here are some brief descriptions and when to use them:



Intel AMT SDK: Software Development Kit  - Contains all the APIs needed for implementing Intel AMT  along with documentation and sample codes. Interfaces included in the SDK are WSDL files for most features, Libraries for Storage and Redirection, and MOF files for WS-Man. Both the DTK and the RDK use the APIs provided in the SDK. Use the most recent release of the SDK to integrate Intel  AMT into your application.



DTK: Developer's Tool Kit - This is also a "solution" written in C# on Windows. Since the Source Code is also available, it can also be used as "example code." This tool is also currently being updated and maintained. Use this to get a great idea of how Intel  AMT works and a lot of us also use it to verify if a certain feature is working.



RDK: Reference Design Kit - This is an AMT "solution" written in Java on Linux provided to help developers implement Intel AMT. It is very much like the DTK, only it is based on older versions of Intel AMT. This tool will be updated in the coming weeks to support SDK 3.0 features. Use it only as an example to get started in a Java environment.



Setup and Configuration Service (SCS)  -  Intel AMT Setup and Configuration Service (Intel SCS or SCS) provides developers with tools to set up and configure Intel AMT devices. SCS  allows for most aspects of setup and configuration to be completed through a remote management console.



Whether you are at the beginning of a development project or looking for technique to design and build a particular capability for your application, development tools, documentation and how-to support can help take your software to the next level. Need more help? Refer to the FAQs or get expert advice from the Developer Discussion Forum



Don't forget to give us your feedback on the Intel AMT development tools in the "[Voice of the Community|] " contest and in the process you may also win some prizes . As always we love to hear from you.
