Intel Active Management Technology (AMT) detection

info Nessus Plugin ID 102992
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.


A firmware based remote management tool is present and enabled on the remote Windows host.


The Intel Management Engine on the remote host has Active Management Technology (AMT) enabled.
Intel AMT enables remote discovery and management of Intel based assets even when the host operating system is inactive.

Note that due to the low-level implementation of Intel ME, Nessus may not be able to identify its version on the remote host at this time.
