11 FEATURES AND BENEFITS OF THE NEW INTEL PENTIUM AND CELERON DESKTOP PROCESSORS² FEATURE Intel Device Protection Technology with Boot Guard BENEFITS Hardware-based boot integrity protection that helps prevent unauthorized software and malware takeover of boot blocks critical to a system s function, thus providing added level of platform security based on hardware. Configurable boot types include: Measured Boot measures the initial boot block into the platform storage device such as trusted platform module (TPM) or Intel Platform Trust Technology (PTT). Verified Boot cryptographically verifies the platform initial boot block using the boot policy key. Intel OS Guard Intel Platform Trust Technology VMCS shadowing Intel Identity Protection Technology A hardware-based security feature that protects the OS (operating system) kernel. OS Guard helps prevent use of malicious data or attack code located in areas of memory marked as user mode pages from taking over or compromising the OS kernel. OS Guard is not application-specific and protects the kernel from any type of application. A trusted element of the platform execution that provides enhanced security by verifying the boot portion of the boot sequence. VMCS shadowing allows a Virtual Machine Manager (VMM) running in a guest (nested virtualization) to access a shadow VMCS memory area using the normal VMRead/VMWrite instructions. This technology reduces overhead for a more natural and responsive user experience. It also allows users to take control of their personal and professional data and apps while being protected by game-changing security. Protect your one-time-password (OTP) credentials and PKI certificates and add a layer of encrypted second factor authentication for online transactions. Log into your system or make secure credit card purchases on your system using near-field communication (NFC) enabled cards. PCI Express* 3.0 Interface Offers up to 8 GT/s for fast access to peripheral devices and networking with up to 16 lanes. 13 PCI Express ports can be configured as x1, x2, x4, x8 and x16 depending on motherboard designs. 13 Green Technology Conflict Free Manufactured with lead-free and halogen-free component packages Conflict-free means DRC conflict-free, which is defined by the Securities and Exchange Commission rules to mean products that do not contain conflict minerals (tin, tantalum, tungsten and/or gold) that directly or indirectly finance or benefit armed groups in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) or adjoining countries. 11
