    i might be reading it wrong, but this looks like Intel (ab)using their remote access powers over IME and derivate embeded remote-management capabilities in hardware they sell to probe the hardware users for vulnerabilities

    after years running their program someone will notice the minimal amount of critical CVEs reported for every probed fleet of cloud devices is 1, the mostly-undisableable remote-management feature itself

    ps: no remarks on whether they can and will scan clouds without prior action from the cloud provider... this should be fun to watch

    i'll *never* forget what they did with IME

    Ever since the Management engine thing came out, can anyone really trust intel cpus anyway?

    Intel isn't a Trust Authority at all, anyway. I doubt Intel trust themselves too.

    More payware DRM-like crap?

    What about making their CPUs and GPUs a lot more competitive instead?

    If you're not joking, SGX is already used for DRM for blu ray.

    Intel, trust and SGX to make cloud secure, that's ÆPIC. I guess you just rely on your blind trust then ...
    Those workers at Intel would have made a fine comedy team.

    ... also more focus on edge and network device attestation too.

    Phoronix: Project Amber Officially Launches As The Intel Trust Authority

    Last year Intel announced Project Amber as an effort to verify the trustworthiness of clouds. Project Amber was talked up as "an innovative service-based security implementation" for the remote verification of the trustworthiness of compute assets. Project Amber is now rolling out as the Intel Trust Authority...
