Intel Admits Security Flaws Contained in Most PC Chips It Sold for Years

By News Aggregator

By Aaron Pressman

Intel admitted this week that there were multiple, serious security flaws in software it had hidden in virtually every PC chip it sold in recent years.

The security holes reside mainly in a feature called the “management engine” on Intel CPUs, like its brand new 8th generation Core Processor series. Intel said it had developed software patches to eliminate the problems, but listed only one manufacturer–Lenovo–that had created a way for customers to actually update their computers. While some other PC makers listed fixes on their own web sites, some of the vulnerable chips reside in smart, connected devices (part of the so-called Internet of Things) and may never be updated.

“In response to issues identified by external researchers, Intel has performed an in-depth comprehensive security review of our Intel Management Engine (ME), Intel Server Platform Services (SPS), and Intel Trusted Execution Engine (TXE) with the objective of enhancing firmware resilience,” the company said in a bulletin posted on its web site dated Nov. 20. “As a result, Intel has identified security vulnerabilities that could potentially place impacted platforms at risk.”

The problems include allowing hackers to load and run unauthorized programs, crash a system or impersonate system security checks, Intel said. In many, but not all cases, the hacker would need physical access to a PC to exploit the vulnerabilities. The flaws exist in almost every mainstream chip Intel has sold in recent years, including its older 6th generation Core chips, introduced in 2015, and its 7th generation, which came on the market last year.

Get Data Sheet, Fortune’s technology newsletter.

Intel said customers should look to their PC manufacturers for fixes. “We worked with equipment manufacturers on firmware and software updates addressing these vulnerabilities, and these updates are available now,” the company said in a statement to Fortune. “Businesses, systems administrators, and system owners using computers or devices that incorporate these Intel products should check with their equipment manufacturers or vendors for updates for their systems, and apply any applicable updates as soon as possible.”

Although Intel’s chips are designed to let users decide which programs to run, the microprocessors also have several kinds of software built in to provide certain features. The management engine, which is designed to provide among other functions security while a computer boots up, runs a version of an older operating system called Minix. And it’s by exploiting that software that researchers have recently found ways to trick the Intel chips into running malicious code.

Some big tech companies that use Intel

chips, like Google

, have talked about how they plan to disable the management engine as a way of eliminating its security vulnerabilities.

In its announcement, Intel also thanked two researchers, Mark Ermolov and Maxim Goryachy from Positive Technologies Research, for helping uncover the vulnerabilities.

Why network slicing is a killer app for 5G

By News Aggregator

By IoT Now Magazine

Network slicing, the idea of dividing available network capacity into slices that are designed and dimensioned to best serve specific users and applications, is seen as one of the greatest benefits of 5G because it allows the creation of dedicated networks for specific customers or customer groups. Mobile operators see this as one of their largest opportunities for growing their enterprise sales, among others, writes Helmut Schober who leads the 5G Services programme at Nokia.

From a conceptual point of view, slicing is clear and simple to understand. The operator has a pool of resources from which it takes what is required for the slice it wants to create. However, as the resource pool is not unlimited the operator has to ensure the network can deliver the resources and guarantee the key performance indicators (KPIs) that are needed for the network slice to perform as expected.

Operators want to get to the point where a customer can order a network slice on-demand and simply press a few buttons to automatically and across the network layers, set up the virtual network – or slice. This is a realistic long-term goal but operators will need help initially to set up the mechanism of automation and to create suitable templates. The absence of standardisation hampers efforts, although eventually 3GPP standards for slicing, which are being developed, will be published.

Italtel introduces Open Innovation Program

By News Aggregator

By Zenobia Hegde

Italtel, a telecommunications company in IT system integration, managed services, Network Functions Virtualisation (NFV) and all-IP solutions, has launched an Open Innovation program, which will see it collaborate with start-ups and new businesses to leverage emerging technologies for applications such as Industry 4.0, Smart Cities and Digital Healthcare.

The program will see Italtel collaborate with start-ups and smaller enterprises to develop and test their solutions, with the goal of jointly commercialising them. It will initially focus on the Internet of Things (IoT), Blockchain and cybersecurity technologies.

“Italy has a rich entrepreneurial fabric which stimulates creativity and innovative ideas, but start-ups and small businesses are often limited in what assets they have to develop these ideas further,” said Luca Ferraris, head of Strategy, Innovation & Collaboration, at Italtel. “This is why this program is so important; it provides an innovation network and an opportunity to collaborate which is not limited to the laboratory.”

The use of physical spaces, test plants and IT resources are among the resources Italtel can offer to program participants in Settimo Milanese and Carini (Palermo). In exchange for this support, Italtel will be able to utilize the technologies and applications created under the program and quickly bring them to market.

Since the launch of the program six-months ago, 60 participating companies have already received appraisal for their ground-breaking work, leading to new opportunities in Industry 4.0.

“The scheme is a great opportunity for our partners to receive support in overcoming key industry hurdles frequently faced when launching new products and to have a platform which enables them toreach global markets,” added Ferraris.

Huawei wireless X Labs and MGI Sign MoU on the exploration of real-time wireless telemedicine

By News Aggregator

By Zenobia Hegde

At the 8th Global Mobile Broadband Forum, Huawei Wireless X Labs and MGI signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) on wireless telemedicine.In 2018, the two parties will work together to provide wireless remote ultrasonic diagnosis applications based on Huawei’s wireless connection technologies and MGI’s remote ultrasonic diagnosis system. It will be the industry’s first use of mobile network technologies in real-time operation applications for telemedicine.

Healthcare resources are becoming an increasingly serious issue worldwide. There are even less healthcare resources in remote or hard to access areas, such as plateaus, distant frontiers, disaster-stricken areas, or on the open sea. Telemedicine can eliminate geographical limitations. Doctors and patients no longer need to be in the same room. Patients can spend less time and money traveling to access medical care, and the medical experts can work more efficiently.

The telemedicine applications related to remote real-time operations, such as remote ultrasonic detection or remote surgery, are difficult to implement due to their requirements for high bandwidth and low latency. For example, the movements of the doctor’s hands, the image transmission, and the force feedback must be tightly synchronised, which is hard to realise under the current network conditions.

To resolve this issue, Huawei Wireless X Labs and MGI will use 4.5G and 5G network technologies to provide data connections for remote ultrasonic robots. This will enable doctors to control ultrasonic probes on the patient side for diagnosis. 4.5G and 5G network provide plenty of bandwidth.

They can provide dozens of megabits per second for onsite audio, video, and B-mode ultrasonic examination images. The low latency boasted by 4.5G and 5G networks ensures that the force feedback from patient sensors transmitted to their doctor’s touch sensitive devices in just milliseconds. With 4.5G and 5G networks, ultrasonic images can be transmitted to the cloud for real-time analysis to assist with diagnosis at multiple levels.

Speaking of the cooperation, Zhou Yuefeng, CMO of Huawei Wireless Network Product Line, remarked, “Innovations in wireless communications technologies create new possibilities for the healthcare industry. Wireless X Labs will join hands with industry partners to innovate together and to accelerate the digital transformation of the entire healthcare industry”.

Liu Jian, vice president of MGI, said, “MGI’s newly released remote ultrasonic diagnosis system breaks through the boundaries presented by traditional ultrasonic diagnosis, and saves both time and space. We will work with Huawei and other partners to help balance healthcare resources and integrate genetic data with image data, bringing high-quality, precision healthcare services to everyone”.

The 2017 Global Mobile Broadband Forum was held in London on November 15th and 16th, 2017. For more details, please click here

IoT Automation and the Modern Software Factory | @ThingsExpo #IoT #M2M #Automation

By News Aggregator

For what feels like a lifetime, industry analysts and experts have predicted ‘this’ will be the year the Internet of Things (IoT) finally takes off, both within industry and for consumers. But, as if by clockwork, each year of ‘guaranteed’ IoT explosion has passed – the mass adoption and exploitation of the Internet of Things having failed to materialize.

The IoT vision is almost utopian in its promise: a connected intelligent home or office, offering a simpler more convenient future. Our houses will be populated by smart ‘things’; thermostats that know precisely how warm we like our rooms, speakers that understand our taste in music and refrigerators that realize when we’re running low on the essentials and act to replenish themselves. Our cities too will become more intelligent; our highways will be populated by sensors, bringing congestion to an end; our streets safeguarded by interconnected surveillance. This will all be made possible via the communication of a global set of devices.

IoT needs to be secured by the network

By News Aggregator

By Jon Gold

Everyone who has a stake in the internet of things, from device manufacturers to network service providers to implementers to customers themselves, makes important contributions to the security or lack thereof in enterprise IoT, attendees at Security of Things World were told.

“The key to all [IoT devices] is that they are networked,” Jamison Utter, senior business development manager at Palo Alto Networks told a group at the conference. “It’s not just a single thing sitting on the counter like my toaster, it participates with the network because it provides value back to business.”

“I think the media focuses a lot on consumer, because people reading their articles and watching the news … think about it, but they’re not thinking about the impact of the factory that built that consumer device, that has 10,000 or 20,000 robots and sensors that are all IoT and made this happen.”
