Intel® Identity Protection Technology (Intel® IPT) with Public Key Infrastructure (PKI)
Authenticate users and servers to encrypt and digitally sign
Enhanced malware protection
Intel® Identity Protection Technology (Intel® IPT) with Public Key Infrastructure (PKI)1 is a second factor authentication for business and Web services that validates when a legitimate user—not malware—is logging in from a trusted PC. This technology is available on 3rd generation and higher Intel® CoreTM vProTM processors. Intel IPT with One-time password (OTP) is available on 2nd generation and higher Intel® CoreTM vProTM processors2.
Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) is a system of digital certificates, certificate authorities, and other registration authorities that verify and authenticate the validity of each party involved in an Internet transaction. Intel IPT uses PKI certificates stored in firmware to authenticate the user and the server to each other and to encrypt and digitally sign documents.
1. No system can provide absolute security under all conditions. Requires an Intel® Identity Protection Technology (Intel® IPT)–enabled system, including a 2nd or higher generation Intel® Core™ processor, an enabled chipset, firmware, software, and participating web site. Consult your system manufacturer. Intel assumes no liability for lost or stolen data and/or systems or any resulting damages. For more information, visit http://ipt.intel.com.
2. Intel® vPro™ technology is sophisticated and requires setup and activation. Availability of features and results will depend upon the setup and configuration of your hardware, software, and IT environments.
