OpenSSL* vulnerability – Software Development Tools for Intel® Active Management Technology (Intel® AMT)
In response to the OpenSSL* advisory (CVE-2010-0740), Intel is releasing an update to the Intel® Active Management Technology (Intel® AMT) Software Development Kit (SDK)and Intel® Setup and Configuration Service (Intel® SCS) to mitigate this vulnerability. This issue does not affect the Intel® Active Management Technology implementation on Intel® vProTM technology based platforms.
The Intel® AMT SDK is the development framework for the Independent Software Vendors (ISVs) to develop manageability applications that interact with Intel® AMT-enabled systems.
Intel® SCS provides the ISVs with the tools to integrate setup and configuration capabilities into their products to setup (provision) Intel® Active Management Technology (Intel® AMT) devices.
Updated versions of Intel® AMT SDK and Intel® SCS which correct the potential denial-of-service vulnerability in OpenSSL* are available for the ISVs.
The vulnerability in the OpenSSL* library could allow a remote attacker to cause denial-of-service. Intel is releasing updated Intel® AMT SDK and Intel® SCS which incorporate the updated OpenSSL* library to mitigate this issue. It is expected that the ISVs would then provide corresponding software updates to their affected application users.
This issue does not affect Intel® Active Management Technology implementation on Intel® vProTMtechnology based platforms.
The ISVs utilizing products below are potentially affected by this issue.
Intel® AMT SDK
The ISVs utilizing the Intel® AMT SDK prior to the public release of version 6.0 (V6.C1076) are potentially affected by this issue. Intel highly recommends the ISVs to include the updated KVM and Redirection libraries into their affected application. The updated Intel® AMT SDK 6.0 which resolves this issue is available at http://software.intel.com/en-us/articles/download-the-latest-intel-amt-software-development-kit-sdk/.
For Windows*, the ISVs should replace KVM and Redirection libraries:
· Redirection library:
· KVM library:
o kvmlib.dll & KVMCustomTransport.dll (applicable to both 32 and 64 bit versions)
o Alternately, ISVs could recompile the KVM code using the updated Intel® AMT SDK which incorporates the updated OpenSSL* library.
· KVM library: The ISVs recompile the KVM code using the updated Intel® AMT SDK.
Redirection library: Requires the OpenSSL* library installed in the system to be updated.
The users of the management console application for Intel® AMT should contact the respective application provider to determine if their application may be affected.
Intel highly recommends the ISVs using the affected versions of Intel® SCS to integrate Intel® SCS version 5.4 or 6.0.1. The updated Intel® SCS which resolves this issue is available at http://software.intel.com/en-us/articles/download-the-latest-version-of-intel-amt-setup-and-configuration-service-scs/.
The users of the setup and configuration tool for Intel® AMT should contact the respective application provider to determine if their application may be affected.
