Itanium® Processor Enables Superior System SecurityThe architecture of the Intel® Itanium® processor was specifically designed not only to provide unprecedented computational advantages, but also to enable development of systems with substantially greater security than is possible with other existing and evolving processor architectures. The security advantages offered by the Intel Itanium processor architecture are real, and are urgently needed to strengthen cyber infrastructure.Secure64 Software Corporation has developed server software products that use this secure architecture, running on Hewlett Packard’s Intel® Itanium® processor-based Integrity* servers.This paper explains, in minimally technical terms:1. The characteristics of a secure system that can drastically reduce the likelihood of attacks that compromise system integrity with unauthorized code2. The security capabilities provided by the Intel Itanium processor architecture that are not found in other mainstream processor architectures3. How these security capabilities can be used to develop systems that prevent known forms of malware injection and rootkitsFor those interested in more technical processor architecture details, the appendix explains the evolution and principal characteristics of the processor architectures that pre-dated the Intel Itanium processor architecture and elaborates the technical advances and advantages of the Intel Itanium processor architecture over these earlier processor architectures.Read the full Itanium® Processor Enables Superior System Security White Paper.
