Intel® IPT with Public Key Infrastructure

Enhanced malware protection

Intel® Identity Protection Technology (Intel® IPT) with Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) 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.


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.


Enterprises already using PKI to protect their access points can further benefit from Intel IPT with PKI by saving the cost of supporting traditional smart card or token storage options.


Intel IPT with PKI is available only on business PCs using 3rd generation and higher Intel® Core™ vPro™ processors.
