Security issues are Intel’s top priority in recent years. At the recent VisiOn conference, Intel CTO Greg Lavender mentioned a series of actions by Intel in security protection, introducing new mechanisms to improve CPU security.
The first is the Project Amber mechanism, which enables remote authentication between cloud, edge, and on-premises. The CPU can create a TEE trusted execution environment protection zone in the memory area to protect important data.
According to Intel’s plan,Project Amber will begin entering customer environments by the end of this year, with widespread adoption in early 2023.
Secondly, to improve CPU security, we must strengthen the prevention of cracking technology. Quantum computers are the most worrying in this regard, because their unique computing principles can break through the current encryption technology. Intel is also researching quantum computers and understands this very well.
To this end, they will develop a CPU processor that is resistant to quantum computing, and is expected to achieve quantum-resistant encryption in 2030.The anti-quantum encryption algorithm announced by the National Institute of Standards and Technology will be used to achieve this goal to ensure that the security encryption of the CPU and code cannot be cracked after the quantum computer matures.
