The Keys to Intel vPro Technology: HECI-MEI-LMS-SOL-UNS

It seems that our Developers are spending a lot of time looking for information about HECI drivers.  With vPro being around for many years now (we are on our 7th revision going on 8) I was wondering if this piece of Active Management Technology  is still a puzzle to developers.  In the spirit of figuring […] Read more >

When the vPro Universe Collides with Other People and goes "Fractal"

This is one of those things in life that you probably don’t know what it is and why it is important until you need it.  If you are part of the “Other People” then you don’t care.  You should probably go find something else to read, in that case.  But let me just say, in […] Read more >

. Bull Mountain – it’s just darn exciting and important technology.

Aside from Bull Mountain being a geographical point in the US (there is actually more than one place called Bull Mountain, by the way), it is the “Code Name” for Intel’s latest innovation in the generation of super-robust Random Numbers. It is based on the RdRand instruction that is new on the next generation platform […] Read more >

Performing Remote Configuration with Java

In my last Java blog I demonstrated how one could perform Host-based configuration of AMT with Java. Now I’m going talk about how to perform Remote Configuration. The differences between Host-based and remote configuration lies primarily on were the configuration code runs and the security requirements to execute the code. With the Host based method, […] Read more >
