Intel® Trusted Platform Module (TPM) 2.0

The trusted platform module (TPM) option is a hardware-based security device that addresses the growing concern about boot process integrity and offers better data protection. TPM protects the system startup process by ensuring that it is tamper-free before releasing system control to the operating system. A TPM device provides secured storage to store data, such as security keys and passwords. In addition, a TPM device has encryption and hash functions. The server board implements TPM as per TPM PC Client Specifications, Revision 2.0, published by the Trusted Computing Group (TCG).

On the system, a TPM device is installed on to a connector on the server board and is secured using a tamper resistant screw to prevent physical theft and tampering of the device.

Server Management

Overview

The server uses the baseboard management controller (BMC) features of an Aspeed AST2600* server management processor (SMP). The BMC supports multiple system management features including intra-system sensor monitoring, fan speed control, system power management, and system error handling and messaging. It also provides remote platform management capabilities including remote access, monitoring, logging, and alerting features.

All server management capabilities can be split in two groups:

  • Standard management features (Included)
  • Optional advanced management features that can be enabled with the purchase of advanced management license key

In addition, BMC integrates with the Intel® Data Center Manager (DCM) software to provide unified management at Data Center level.

Remote Management Port
The server board includes a Remote Management Port used to remotely access embedded system management features. The Remote Management Port is an RJ45 Gigabit Ethernet port on the back edge of the server board. The remote management port can be configured using the BIOS Setup Utility before it can be used for remote management purposes.

Standard Server Management Features
The following system management features are supported by default.

  • Integrated BMC Web Console Download User Guide
  • Virtual KVM over HTML5
  • Redfish
  • Support for IPMI 2.0 and Intel® Node Manager (Intel® NM)
  • Out-of-band BIOS/BMC Update and Configuration
  • System Inventory
  • Autonomous Debug Log

Securty Features
The BMC supports several security features including OpenLDAP and Active Directory, security logs, ability to turn off any remote port, Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) certificate upload, VLAN support, and KCS control. The BMC also supports full user management with password defined privileges and with the ability to define password complexity rules. Each BMC release is given a security version number to prevent firmware downgrades from going to lower security versions.

Intel® provides a best practices security guide, that focuses on the best ways for you to enable security on supported Intel® Server Boards and Intel® Server Systems.

Advanced Server Management Features
Purchasing an optional Advanced System Management product key unlocks the following advanced system management features:

  • Virtual Media local mage redirection (HTML5 and Java)
  • Virtual Media shared files and folders redirection
  • Out-of-band hardware RAID Management for latest Intel® RAID cards
  • Included single system license for Intel® Data Center Manager (Intel® DCM)

Virtual Media Local Image Redirection (HTML5)
The BMC supports media redirection of local IMG, IMA or ISO image files. This redirection is supported in HTML5 remote console clients. When a user selects the "Launch Window to Mount Local Image" option, a new web page is displayed. The page provides the user interface to select the type of source media (image files) and the location of the desired media to make it available to the remote server system.

After the type and specific media are selected, the interface provides a mount/unmount interface so the user can connect the media to or disconnect the media from the server system. Once connected, the selected image file is presented to the server system as a read-only removable media and may be interacted like a CD-ROM drive.

This feature gives system administrators the ability to install software (including operating system), copy files, perform firmware updates, from the local media on their workstation.

NOTE: The shared file is presented to the server system as a UDF file system. The operating system of the server must be able to interact with UDF file systems for this feature to work.

Virtual Media Shared Files and Folders Redirection
In addition to supporting virtual media redirection from the administrator’s workstation, the BMC also supports media redirection of .IMG, .IMA or .ISO files hosted on a file server, accessible to the BMC over network interface.

The current version supports Samba shares (Microsoft Windows file shares) and NFS shares. This virtual media redirection is more effective for mounting virtual media at scale, instead of processing all files from the workstation’s drive through the HTML5 application and over the workstation’s network. Each BMC makes a direct network file share connection to the file server and accesses files across that network share directly.
