With the ever-increasing connectivity of home and business computers, it is essential that developers understand how the Intel Safer Computing Initiative can provide critical security building blocks to better protect the PC computing environment. A highly versatile set of hardware-based security enhancements, codenamed La Grande technology (LT), will be coming soon to Intel® processors, chipsets, and platforms. This book covers the fundamentals of LT and key Trusted Computing concepts such as security architecture, cryptography, trusted computer base, and trusted channels.

Highlights include:

  • History of trusted computing and definitions of key concepts
  • Comprehensive overview of protections that are provided by La Grande technology
  • Case study showing how access to memory is the focal point of an attack
  • Protection methods for execution, memory, storage, input, and graphics
  • How the Trusted Platform Module (TPM) supports attestation

    In this concise book, the lead security architect for Intel's next-generation security initiative provides critical information you need to evaluate Trusted Computing for use on today's PC systems and to prepare your designs to respond to future threats.
