Phoenix SecureCore™ is a full featured advanced firmware providing both UEFI and legacy support. The Bios structure is modular and quality driven. SecureCore™ is build on PhoenixBios™ 4.0 Release 6.x. Working with Eltan, manufacturers can use the product for a customized Bios solution that meets their specific design requirements.
This product can still be licensed but is not recommended for new designs. For new projects one of the following Products versions should be used:
Phoenix SecureCore is designed for the next generation of devices. For embedded, industrial, server and desktop or notebook. The architecture is modular with proven quality and rich on features.
- Hardware Virtualization Support
- UEFI, Intel Framework, and Legacy Style Driver Support from a Single Code Base
- Windows Hardware Error Architecture (WHEA) Support
Built on TrustedCore Security Foundation
Next generation silicon support
Phoenix SecureCore supports next generation silicon technologies such as hardware virtualization, iAMT (Advanced Management Technology), and TXT (Trusted Execution Technology). It is the most flexible BIOS code base available, with support for current and next generation industry standards from a single code base.
Legacy and Standards Compliant
SecureCore supports the Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI 2.0, 2.1), Platform Initialization Working Group (PIWG) PI 1.0 specifications, Intel Framework, as well as legacy style drivers – and all from a single code base. This allows developers to leverage existing tools and libraries, further maximizing development investments and speeding time to market.
SecureCore includes StrongROM, an embedded cryptographic engine, which allows authentication of the firmware itself. StrongROM can alternatively complement a TPM 1.2 chip in a system to further enhance device security. SecureCore provides a secure root of trust that can authenticate operating systems, such as Microsoft Windows Vista. It also provides for multi-factor biometric authentication to verify the identity of a user prior to any operating system being loaded.
Intel® vPro™ Technology support
SecureCore supports supports Intel® vPro™ Technology which allows IT departments to multiply their ability to manage, inventory, diagnose, and repair PCs in efficient, remote, and streamlined ways. Support of the following Intel® vPro™ Technology including: Intel® AMT 3.0, Intel® VT, Intel® Trusted Execution Technology (TXT), Virtual Appliance (VA) 2.6
AMD's Torrenza Open Platform Initiative support
SecureCore Supports Torrenza, AMD's Open Platform Initiative fostering flexibility, reliability, versatility, and security through comprehensive support of industry open standards. With robust development and debugging tools such as CoreArchitect 2, it supports AMD Torrenza, an open platform socket upgrade architecture based on HyperTransport™.
