Intel® Trusted Execution Technology Server Platforms Availability Matrix
Intel® Trusted Execution Technology Server Platforms Availability Matrix, March 25, 2011
Intel® Trusted Execution Technology (Intel® TXT) is a powerful component of enterprise data protection strategies. It provides a hardware root of trust and measured launch environment that provide new levels of protections for server platforms—helping to assure that “known good” configurations of controlling software (firmware, BIOS, Hypervisors, etc) are running on the platform. For more information on how Intel TXT works, and the related use cases, please see: https://www-ssl.intel.com/content/www/us/en/architecture-and-technology/trusted-execution-technology/malware-reduction-general-technology.html?
For more information on how Intel TXT is used as part of cloud security solutions, please visit the Intel® Cloud Builder reference architectures site: http://software.intel.com/en-us/articles/intel-cloud-builders-reference-architecture-library/#enhance_security
Not all servers support Intel TXT. Intel TXT requires multiple hardware and software components, including:
• Chipset, Intel® Trusted Platform Module (Intel® TPM)
• Enabled BIOS, Enabled Hypervisor or Operating system
Some of these components are available today, others will be available shortly. The matrix in the paper is intended to provide an easy reference for the IT administrator to determine which platforms and operating environments support Intel TXT. This list will be updated as vendors complete testing and release products that support Intel TXT.
