Intel working on anti-theft technology for laptops

It isn't yet ready for incorporation into new machines, but with research showing that even consumers now rate data protection second only to performance among the list of desirable attributes new laptops should possess, Intel "clearly thinks it's time to get moving on this issue," reports [url=http://www.reghardware.co.uk/2008/04/02/idf_intel_touts_anti_theft_tech/]The Register[/url].

Intel's Mobility Group Chief Dadi Perlmutter says ATT will seek to put in place hardware within the system to disable laptops booted without authorization and to prevent access to stored information. He also said that Intel is also looking into incorporating tracking technology into ATT, "though that takes the add-on beyond the hardware and into the service provider domain."
Fujitsu Siemens, Lenovo, Phoenix and McAfee are also working on the project, according to The Register.
