Intel puts security on chips to foil password hackers

Intel unveiled a new line of business chips Tuesday that could foil hacker attacks while reducing reliance on complicated company passwords that employees struggle with on a daily basis.

The enhancement is embedded in Intel’s latest sixth generation vPro processors designed for business computers. It operates in hardware, below the software that is commonly compromised by hackers.

The security feature, “called Intel Authenticate,” defends against “phishing” and other so-called social engineering schemes for tricking people into give up their passwords.

Instead of relying on complicated passwords, employees would be identified through various “factors.” These could be a short identification number, proximity of a company badge or a user’s smartphone, location of the PC and a thumbprint.

Clearing an employee “no longer has to rely solely on employees remembering complicated passwords,” the company said in its announcement.

“One of the biggest keys to this is there is a secure element inside the Intel processor that manages all of this,” said Patrick Moorhead of Moor Insights and Strategy. “That wasn’t available before. A lot of different pieces had to come together.”

Intel vice president Tom Garrison said that corporate IT managers can decide what factors to use for identification. “IT has full control,” he said.

Garrison said an estimated 117,000 phishing attacks every day are trying to snag passwords and usernames.

The new chip will be tested by select businesses before it enters production, Garrison said.

    I am here to share a testimony about this great credit Hacker called Rich Skrenta who helped me and my husband repair our credit report & increase my credit score off our neck when we were in need of it. We needed to fix our credit so we could establish our business, purchase a house and live comfortably as a copies. We really needed to fix and boost this credit score so we could accomplish our dreams. I found this great hacker online about 2 days ago, I contacted him and ask can you increase our score, He proved to my husband and i that He is really capable. We explained to him about the negative items on our report, and we were asked to wait for 3 days after He took some personal info from us and finally we got an excellent result of 820 above. I made a promise to publish him if he could actually fix our report and increase our score to our satisfaction. which i did just now!!! you can reach him via email : richskrentacyberservice (at) gmail (dot) com

I can’t thank him enough and his affordable.i never knew this stuff was real until i experienced it myself. You can get in touch with him through his mail: Robertmorriscyberservices@gmail.com.

  • Sophia Robert

    A personal experience: For the past year, I have been battling with my
    low credit score until i met this hacker guru through a friend of mine.
    He helped increase my credit score to 780 in record time which made me
    elated and full of life again. Though I doubted him at first because of
    my previous experiences where I was ripped off by importers online but
    he eventually came through for me without charging outrageous fees. He
    increased my score and also fixed the negatives on my report which now
    got me loans and a mortgage to get a new house. He is reliable, discreet
    and trust worthy. Contact him via email onprolifichacker20 at g mail dot com
