Our vision for the future of Windows PCs is security at the very core, built into the CPU, where hardware and software are tightly integrated in a unified approach designed to eliminate entire vectors of attack. This revolutionary security processor design will make it significantly more difficult for attackers to hide beneath the operating system, and improve our ability to guard against physical attacks, prevent the theft of credential and encryption keys, and provide the ability to recover from software bugs.
The collaborating companies are set to integrate the Pluton processors in their future products. Each company is expected to integrate this processor with the launch of next-generation CPUs. It is currently unknown if this will include server-class processors or just desktop platforms.
