Black Hat USA Offers an Inside Look at Intel’s Security Engine

Come to the August event and learn how Intel's Converged Security and Manageability Engine has been fine-tuned to guard against low-level firmware attacks.

Low-level firmware attacks are a pernicious problem in cybersecurity, and this August the team at Intel will be at Black Hat USA to share an inside look at how their Converged Security and Manageability Engine (CMSE) is built to thwart them.

This is a great opportunity to see, firsthand, how improvements have been made to the CSME firmware to make it more difficult to exploit common memory corruption issues and reduce security vulnerabilities caused by firmware complexity.

You’ll also learn how firmware environments can achieve the same results by applying the same technology, and get a behind-the-scenes look at how Intel applies feedback fuzzing and queue-management in a generic form, so it could be applied on any given existing fuzzer.

For more details on this promising Briefing and many others over on the Black Hat USA Briefings page, which is regularly updated with new content as we get closer to the event.

Black Hat USA will return to the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas August 3-8, 2019. For more information on what’s happening at the event and how to register, check out the Black Hat website.
