Security

AMD promotes open, industry standard security solutions for desktop and notebook PCs.

AMD is a member of the Trusted Computing Group. The Trusted Computing Group (TCG) is a not-for-profit organization formed to develop, define and promote open, vendor-neutral, industry standards for trusted computing building blocks and software interfaces across multiple platforms.

Trusted Computing is a category of technology developed and promoted by the Trusted Computing Group. The term is taken from the field of trusted systems.

Trusted Computing is the industry's answer to growing security problems and is based in a hardware root of trust, helping to make enterprise systems, applications and networks more secure.  The computer or system can be made to consistently behave in specific ways, and those behaviors can be enforced by hardware and software when the owner of those systems enables these technologies.

In addition, Trusted Computing can allow computers' systems to offer improved security and efficiency.
