Intel® Trusted Execution Technology (Intel® TXT) is a powerful component of enterprise data protection strategies. It provides a hardware root of trust and measured launch environment that provide new levels of protections for server platforms—helping to assure that "known good" configurations of controlling software (firmware, BIOS, hypervisors, etc) are running on the platform.
Not all servers support Intel TXT. Intel TXT requires multiple hardware and software components, including:
• Processor, Chipset, Trusted Platform Module (TPM)
• Enabled BIOS, Enabled Hypervisor or Operating system
The matrix is intended to provide an easy reference for the IT administrator to determine which platforms and operating environments support Intel TXT. This list will be updated as vendors complete testing and release products that support Intel TXT.
