The Developer’s Guide to Creating Intel® AMT Certificates

The Developer’s Guide to Creating Intel® AMT Certificates

Intel® Active Management Technology (Intel® AMT) supports the encryption of communications between the management console and client using Transport Layer Security (TLS). Enabling TLS communications requires the creation of security certificates; while the process may be unfamiliar, it is straightforward.

This guide gives developers the background and step-by-step procedures to create Intel AMT security certificates using the Intel AMT SDK, OpenSSL*, and Microsoft Windows* PowerShell*. It also shows how to use the TLS.ps1 script (provided in Appendix B) to configure Intel AMT systems to use TLS communication.

Background and Preparation

Basic host-based setup of a platform that supports Intel AMT places the platform in Client Control Mode, which provides limited Intel AMT functionality. That limitation reflects the lower level of trust required to perform that type of setup, compared to Admin Control Mode.

Admin Control Mode achieves that higher level of trust, in part, by using TLS to secure communication over the network. The certificates described in this guide support Intel AMT Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption.

Note The process described requires your system to be configured to run the Intel® vPro™ Technology module PowerShell scripts as a prerequisite. If ...
