Execution Technology (TXT) provides greater protection for information that is
used and stored on the business server. A key aspect of that protection is the
provision of an isolated execution environment and associated sections of
memory where operations can be conducted on sensitive data, invisible to the
rest of the system. Intel TXT provides for a sealed portion of storage where
sensitive data such as encryption keys can be kept, helping to shield them from
being compromised during an attack by malicious code.
Only the modular servers in Cisco
UCSME-2814 compute cartridges include support for TXT. TXT is disabled by default on
TXT can be enabled
only after TPM, Intel Virtualization technology (VT) and Intel Virtualization
Technology for Directed I/O (VT-d) are enabled. When you only enable TXT, it
also implicitly enables TPM, VT, and VT-d.
