Intel AntiTheft Technology for T510i

Hi all...

 

I have been looking at the Intel Anti-Theft technology for my T510i... but I am a little unclear as to what is actually required to activate it.

 

First of all I am interested in the Whole Disk Encryption option. How do I activate that? Should I be aware of anything now that I have both Windows 7, 64bit and Ubuntu installed. Do I have to pay extra for this service, since this doesn't rely on an online service.

 

Second I would like to know how to enable the Remote Disable and Destroy. Again, I am not sure how this works? Do I have to sign up for and pay for a specific service? Where do I do this if I want this option?

 

I have the operating systems installed and working, and I want to know if I can enable the whole disk encryption without reinstalling everything?

 

Thanks,

Jay

Hello mate,

 

Intel provide the hardware part. For the software part you can use the one you want if it works with the Intel AntiTheft Technology.

Have a look there : http://antitheft.intel.com/get-service.aspx

OK... So there isn't any software provided by Lenovo. That is what I thought.

 

My impression was that I could somehow enable it from within the lenovo software suite.

 

But I need a third party software package! 

 

Thanks! Jay

Well, if you have bitlocker you can use that.  the intel chip will wok with bitlocker.   that pretty much makes your HDD crack proof if your pc is off.  there are some (limited) memory hacks but people have to be pretty darn motivated to try them.

You can break in over firewire very easily since firewire has direct access to the physical memory space (disable in BIOS and make sure you use a BIOS password). This is possible over USB also, however it is not as simple. The default BitLocker settings are not the most secure either (you should at least turn on the TPM PIN option).
