The Intel(R) Security Driver supports the Intel(R) 810 Chipset family, the Intel(R) 815 Chipset family, the Intel(R) 820 Chipset family, and the Intel(R) 840 Chipset
The Intel® Security Driver provides software applications the ability to access the Firmware Hub's hardware Random Number Generator (RNG). Random numbers are a fundamental building block for strengthening and securing the confidentiality of electronic communications. They are a key element of cryptography, digital signing, security protocols, and other enablers of trusted, connected computing.
The Intel® RNG provides a convenient and inexpensive way for applications that employ encryption, digital signatures, and other such mechanisms to increase the strength of their security.
