Acer laptops have new Phoenix BIOS

New Acers will ship with SecureCore

 
Phoenix technologies has announced today that the latest series of notebook computers from Acer will use its SecureCore firmware.

The new bios supports
hardware virtualization, iAMT (Advanced Management Technology), and TXT (Trusted Execution Technology), and Phoenix claims it is the most flexible BIOS code base around.

SecureCore also 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.

On the security side it has an embedded cryptographic engine, which allows authentication of the firmware itself, and supports biometric authentication.

It's nice to write a story about Acer that doesn't contain the words "litigation", "sued" or "patent infringement" in it.
