Microsoft Introduces Secured Core PCs W. Firmware Protection


Certified Secured-core server hardware from an OEM partner provides more security protections that are useful against sophisticated attacks. Certified Secured-core server hardware can provide increased assurance when handling mission critical data in some of the most data sensitive industries. A Secured-core server uses hardware, firmware, and driver capabilities to enable advanced Windows Server security features. Many of these features are available in Windows Secured-core PCs and are now also available with Secured-core server hardware and Windows Server 2022.

Firmware executes with high privileges and is often invisible to traditional anti-virus solutions, which has led to a rise in the number of firmware-based attacks. Secured-core servers measure and verify boot processes with Dynamic Root of Trust for Measurement (DRTM) technology. Secured-core servers can also isolate of driver access to memory with Direct Memory Access (DMA) protection.


The role of the Windows PC and trust in technology are more important than ever as our devices keep us connected and productive across work and life. Windows 10 is the most secure version of Windows ever, built with end-to-end security for protection from the edge to the cloud all the way down to the hardware. Advancements like Windows Hello biometric facial recognition, built-in Microsoft Defender Antivirus, and firmware protections and advanced system capabilities like System Guard, Application Control for Windows and more have helped Microsoft keep pace with the evolving threat landscape.


During UEFI boot phase, the SMM Supervisor is loaded as a UEFI driver. This driver is signed by AMD and authenticated by the Platform Security Processor (PSP) at the time of DRTM launch. Failure of authentication will fail DRTM. (It is also under firmware anti-rollback protection by PSP.)
