Proactively Secure Software for Intel® Processors
To develop for system security and performance, developers must understand how software works with hardware. To balance both priorities:
- Adhere to security best practices and secure coding principles as a first line of defense.
- Download the latest microcode and follow recommended mitigation guidance for known issues.
- Learn Intel hardware behavior and how software can best use that behavior and associated features.
The following documents show how to develop and secure software running on Intel processors, as well as details and options for fine-tuned control of software and hardware features according to the most up-to-date guidance.
