Management Engines

Management Engines are in fact backdoors put in a system to make a lot of computers manageble in big organisations. They are save as long as the key is save. They are a security and privacy risk.
So far two are known to us

  • AMD Platform Security Processor (since 2013)
  • Intel Management Engine (since 2006)

Avoiding management engines

  • Use a PC from before the introduction of the management engine
  • Use an external USB ethernet or WiFi dongle seem to work since the management engine only seems to know the build in network devices

Any other ideas, please let us know
