Microsoft has unveiled new technology to keep PCs safe from unauthorized unauthorized access and possible hacking. As part of this system, Windows 10 protection is implemented into the device at the production stage. The security technology, dubbed Secured-core PC, consists of a number of components that integrate into the UEFI interface, which, as conceived by the authors of the development, will prevent extraneous code from entering the system even at the moment of computer startup.
How technology works
New development to prevent Windows hacking includes a security module that works in conjunction with validation keys. The latter are built into the processor at the stage of PC production. The technology works as follows: at the moment the device is turned on, the security chip together with the processor tests the operating system for malicious elements. As a result, Secured-core PC will either allow further booting or slow it down by reporting the presence of an unauthorized code.
In other words, if the technology detects any changes, it will not allow the computer to boot to the end. The Secured-core PC settings are planning to always be active and the developer company did not say how to disable Windows protection. To complement it, Microsoft recommends using Windows Hello, the proprietary security system included with Windows 10 that recognizes the user.
The introduced protection of Windows 10 is positioned by Microsoft as a modern way to ensure PC security. At the same time, Secured-core PC interacts only with the "ten", so the installation of a third-party OS with this secure boot technology is excluded. However, in the future, it is possible that the corporation may authorize the use of other operating systems with it.
In the long term, the new Windows protection may be included in most modern desktop devices. At this stage, there are few third-party computers and laptops that support the technology. In addition to the Surface Pro X branded tablet designed for the business segment of users, the system is supported by a number of models of mobile PCs from such well-known brands as Panasonic, Lenovo, Dell, HP. Microsoft plans to expand this list as Secured-core PC develops further.
