Intel Backs Off Security Plan
Speaking at the Intel Developer Forum here this week, Intel executives say LaGrande will be aimed at business users rather than consumers. They also announced plans to make it easier for users to opt out of LaGrande, saying Intel no longer plans to include the LaGrande technology in all of its microprocessors.
Intel also has released a draft of a policy white paper designed to address privacy concerns relating to the LaGrande design. LaGrande specifies a number of security features for the processors, chipset, storage, input devices and graphics components that will be created by Intel and partner companies to improve the security of Intel-based systems.
