Microsoft unveils Pluton processor jointly by AMD, Intel, and Qualcomm.


This security solution is being promoted as “a shared vision for the future of Windows PCs.”
Microsoft just made an exciting announcement. Together with AMD, Intel, and Qualcomm, the company unveiled a “shared vision for the future of Windows PCs,” with security built into the core itself.

Microsoft unveils Pluton processor jointly by AMD, Intel, and Qualcomm.
Microsoft’s new Pluton security processor is engineered to provide more powerful hardware and software integration across Windows PCs, eliminating entire classes of cyber attack vectors, the developers note.

The Microsoft Pluton processor is designed to improve physical repair attacks, prevent theft of credentials and encryption keys, provide hardware control and system integrity checks, and simplify the cloud-based firmware update process (via Windows Update).

This chip-to-cloud protection technology pioneered the Xbox and Azure Sphere. Microsoft explains:

This revolutionary security processor architecture will make it much more difficult for attackers to hide their actions on the operating system, improve their ability to fend off physical attacks and prevent theft of credentials and encryption keys, and enable system recovery from software errors.”

Unlike TPMs, which are now widely used to securely store keys and parameters that confirm the system’s integrity, Pluton’s design eliminates the possibility of an attack on the communication channel between the CPU and TPM.

Windows computers with the Pluton architecture will emulate TPM, ensuring compatibility with existing TPM and API specifications.

The Pluton security processor will appear in future AMD solutions, Intel, and Qualcomm to protect credentials, user IDs, encryption keys, and personal data. Microsoft promises that this information cannot be removed from Pluton, even if an attacker installs malware or takes full physical control of the computer.
