Trusted Compute Pools with Intel® Trusted Execution Technology (Intel® TXT)
Enhance your server platform security
Hardware-based technology for enhancing platform security
Trusted compute pools with Intel® Trusted Execution Technology (Intel® TXT)1 support IT compliance by protecting virtualized data centers’ private, public, and hybrid clouds against attacks toward hypervisor and BIOS, firmware, and other pre-launch software components.
A feature of the Intel® Xeon® processor, Intel TXT establishes a root of trust through measurements when the hardware and pre-launch software components are in a known good state. Utilizing the result, administrators can set policies for sensitive data and workload placement onto groups of servers known as trusted compute pools.
Why it matters
With Intel TXT, you can:
- Run your workload and data on a trusted server.
- Protect your workload and data.
- Avoid compromising security in the cloud.
- Enhance IT compliance.
Intel TXT works in conjunction with server systems based on the Intel Xeon processor and software stack installed on top of the server systems.

Industrial and transaction systems
Imagine a piece of manufacturing or retail equipment becoming compromised—possibly manipulated via network, USB flash drive, or an illegal peripheral at boot time. Intel TXT measures and detects these and other manipulations. Using such measurements, systems can be kept from booting.
