When a user tries to initiate a remote session between the wired PC and a company server from an open LAN , AMT sends the stored information to a management presence server MPS in the “demilitarized zone” “DMZ” that exists between the corporate firewall and client the user PC’s firewalls. The MPS then mediates communication between the laptop and the company’s management servers.

FG Security in telecommunications: Intel Active Management Technology AMT is hardware and firmware technology for remote out-of-band management of personal computers[1] [2] [3] [4] [5] running on the Intel Management Enginea separate microprocessor not exposed to the user, in order to monitor, maintain, update, upgrade, and repair them.

PCs can be sold with AMT enabled or disabled. Because communication is authenticated, a secure communication tunnel can then be opened using TLS encryption. Another security evaluation by Vassilios Ververis showed serious weaknesses in the GM45 chipset implementation. For about 60 euros, Ververis purchased from Go Daddy a certificate that is accepted by the ME firmware and allows remote “zero touch” provisioning of possibly unsuspecting machines, which broadcast their HELLO packets to would-be configuration servers.

Because the software that implements AMT exists outside of the so, system, it is not kept up-to-date by the operating system’s normal update mechanism. Retrieved July 14, Since AMT presents the posture out-of-band, the network can also authenticate the PC out-of-band, before the OS or applications load and before they try to access the network. Software updates provide upgrades to the next minor version of Intel AMT.
