However, the technology appears to be an extension to various security mechanisms Intel has been eking out for years.The multi-factor authentication – dubbed Intel Authenticate – hopes to do away, in part, with passwords, and is aimed at businesses, large and small. Right down at the firmware layer, the chipset stores policies and authentication data that are supposed to be safe from hackers.Authentication data could, for example, be the user's fingerprint, or a PIN. A policy could, for example, state that a recognized work-issued smartphone within close range of the machine, plus the entry of a correct PIN, is enough to log into the device. The policy could add that if the machine is not connected to a corporate network, then a smartphone within range, a valid PIN, and a valid fingerprint, read from a builtin sensor, is needed to unlock the computer.So, if you're using a laptop in the office on the corporate Wi-Fi, with your phone on the desktop within Bluetooth range, all you need to do is type in a PIN to log back into the PC. If you're in a cafe at the weekend, you'll need to provide a fingerprint to make sure you're not a thief.

"Intel Authenticate embeds multi-factor authentication into hardware in the platform architecture," said Thomas Garrison, a vice president in Intel's client computing group."By doing so, the most common software based attacks that steal user credentials through viruses or malware are rendered ineffective. Intel delivers a secure PIN, a Bluetooth proximity factor with your Android or iPhone, a logical location factor with vPro systems, and fingerprint biometrics."The operating system – so far Windows 7, 8 and 10 support Intel Authenticate – has to communicate with the firmware to get the yes or no confirmation for allowing the login. The OS isn't supposed to see the fingerprint or the PIN, so it can't be stolen by code running inside the kernel or in user space.If you can't login – such as you lose your phone – you can optionally fall back to a password. It's supposed to help employees who are bad at remembering complex passwords, and IT support desks who have to do daily resets for people.

Intel Authenticate uses two firmware-level systems that give security researchers and privacy activists the heebie-jeebies: Intel's Management Engine (ME), and Intel's Active Management Technology (AMT). Both of these have been around for years, work below the operating system, and are mostly invisible to the layers of software above them. They are supposed to allow sysadmins to control machines remotely, but offer other features. AMT, for example, provides the network location detection used by Intel Authenticate.The Management Engine built into the motherboard chipset provides the secure memory area for storing policies and the user's authentication data, which aren't allowed to leave the secure area nor allowed to be tampered with unless you've got the right privileges. This is supposed to stop miscreants from setting lax policies or swiping people's login details.This is why you need a firmware download to activate Intel Authenticate; the software runs only on vPro editions of Intel's new sixth-gen Core CPUs, aka the Skylake family. The Skylake vPro parts were announced this week.

This whole system appears to be an iteration of the two-factor authentication methods we've seen before in Chipzilla's business-friendly chips, such as the 2011 Sandy Bridge vPro parts, and the Broadwell vPro family in 2015. Back then, it was known as Intel Identity Protection, which provides support for two-factor authentication, such as logging in with a username, password and hardware token, or a username, password and one-time code sent to a smartphone.Now, Intel's added Bluetooth and fingerprint-reader support, made it a bit more user-friendly, thrown in PIN codes, and voila. It might explain why these two press releases on the vPro series, a year apart, seem so similar.A Canadian widow won't have to go through the courts to get the password to her dead husband's iPad after Apple, in the face of media pressure, withdrew its insistence on legal action.Last August 72-year-old Peggy Bush lost her husband to lung cancer and, among other belongings, was left her husband's Apple laptop and iPad. But when she fired up the fondleslab she found it was password protected and her husband had neglected to write it down anywhere."I just had the iPad. I didn't touch his computer, it was too confusing to me ... I didn't realize he had a specific password I should have known about ... it just never crossed my mind," Bush told the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation.

Her daughter got in touch with Apple support and explained the situation. The customer support operators said it wouldn't be a problem – they would just need the will bequeathing the hardware to Mrs Bush, along with a death certificate.These she gathered, but when calling back the customer support representative claimed never to have heard of the case. Bush's daughter spent the next two months being given "the runaround," as she put it, before an Apple staffer told her they would need a court order to hand over the password."I was just completely flummoxed. What do you mean a court order?" her daughter Donna said. "I said that was ridiculous, because we've been able to transfer the title of the house, we've been able to transfer the car, all these things, just using a notarized death certificate and the will."Donna wrote a personal letter to Tim Cook explaining the situation but got nothing back from Apple other than an affirmation that the firm would have to have a court order to allow her mother to use the iPad as intended.

The family went to their local media to protest the situation and, lo and behold, Apple swung into action. The firm said that the whole thing had been a "misunderstanding" and has since begun working with the family to sort out the situation.The case highlights what is going to become a growing problem for those shuffling off this mortal coil. Very few people take the time to pass on their passwords when dealing with death, and unlocking electronic equipment can be an unwanted frustration for a family dealing with the death of a loved one.This gets worse with people's media increasingly being online. Under a strict interpretation, passing on your digital possessions like music and (in this case) games is illegal, since the buyer is only renting them for the length of their lives, rather than owning them outright.Leaving a digital will containing logins and passwords for key accounts is increasingly being recommended. Naturally, writing all this stuff down is a security risk, so be sure to encrypt the data and – just to be on the safe side – give one half of the key to your executor and the other half to a good friend in rude health. Efforts to expand IT and internet connectivity in developing countries are producing results that are "far less than expected," according to the World Bank.

The 2016 Digital Dividends report [PDF] said that when it comes to quality of life and economic development, campaigns to bring poorer nations online have failed to meet their goals.Researchers found that, despite the growth in internet connectivity, productivity and economic growth in those newly connected regions have been far less than anticipated. Additionally, the report found that the divide between the rich and poor has grown, and more than 60 per cent of the world's population remains offline.The findings suggest that the efforts of many technology companies and non-profits to offer internet connectivity as a way of bringing large populations out of poverty will not accomplish their goal, and in many cases will only serve to increase the income gap between the wealthy and the hard-up in those areas.One reason for this is a continuing gap in education and in the business climate in many developing countries. With large numbers of the labor force lacking access to education and job skills, the introduction of technology is serving to automate work and cost jobs for the poor while only creating opportunities for those with wealth and access to job training.

"Public sector investments in digital technologies, in the absence of accountable institutions, amplify the voice of elites, which can result in policy capture and greater state control," the report reads."And because the economics of the internet favor natural monopolies, the absence of a competitive business environment can result in more concentrated markets, benefiting incumbent firms."In addition to worsening economic divides, the report found that the unequal access to technology also leads to a decline in free elections, giving government regimes tools to rig elections in their favor.Rather than simply look to expand digital connectivity, the World Bank says, governments and institutions should invest in so-called "analog" factors including education, business growth and government oversight that will allow the growing connectivity to be used by a larger portion of the population and discourage abuse by government and powerful business groups."We must continue to connect everyone and leave no one behind because the cost of lost opportunities is enormous," said World Bank Group president Jim Yong Kim.

"But for digital dividends to be widely shared among all parts of society, countries also need to improve their business climate, invest in people's education and health, and promote good governance." In case anyone doubted that their work communications can be legally monitored by their bosses, the European Court of Human Rights has now ruled that employers can indeed spy on online chats.The continent-wide ruling came at the end of a case involving Romanian engineer Bogdan Mihai Bărbulescu, who was dismissed in 2007 for communicating with his fiancée via Yahoo Messenger while at work, which violated his employer's internal policy.Bărbulescu claimed he used the chat service only for professional purposes. But his superiors showed him a transcript of his conversations on Yahoo Messenger, which included messages exchanged with his fiancée and his brother.After terminating his contract for breaking policy, the engineer claimed his bosses broke the law by violating his privacy. He reckoned emails and other electronic missives are protected by article eight of the convention on human rights, which safeguards citizens' private lives and correspondence.However, on Tuesday, the European court dismissed [PDF] Bărbulescu's argument that the company had violated his rights.

In its ruling, the panel of judges said: "[T]he court finds that it is not unreasonable for an employer to want to verify that the employees are completing their professional tasks during working hours."The court concurred with an earlier ruling by Romanian judges that the employer in Bucharest had acted within its disciplinary powers. It said the worker had not “convincingly explained why he had used the Yahoo Messenger account for personal purposes.” Acer's 5.5-inch Liquid Jade Primo, first announced in September last year, is a premium device set to be available in February at prices "from €569".The phone runs on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 CPU with 3GB RAM and 32GB on-board storage. There is a 21MP rear camera and 8MP front.

The key feature in the Jade Primo is support for Microsoft's Continuum feature, allowing you to use the phone like a PC when connected to a larger display – though limited to apps that run on the device's ARM processor.You can connect the phone to an external display using either a USB Type-C monitor, a wireless connection, or the optional Display Dock. Acer will also market a "Desktop kit" bundle, complete with Display Dock, keyboard and mouse.The idea, claims Acer, is that you can leave your laptop at home, though with all that kit the amount of space you save may be disappointing.The company also notes the phone's support for BitLocker encryption (not new for Windows Phone) and support for device management using Microsoft Intune or other systems, pitching for the enterprise market.A more affordable Windows 10 phone is on the way from Alcatel OneTouch. The 5.5-inch Fierce XL has a 1280x720 HD display, 1.1GHz Snapdragon quad-core processor, 8MP rear camera and 2MP front camera. This will cost $139.99 in the US, exclusively on T-Mobile. Information on wider availability and pricing is not yet available.
