In term of overall security is AMD DASH or Intel vPro preferable?

They both have:

  • Hardware virtualization

  • Remote Manageability

  • Hardware-enhanced security

  • etc...

I can't really distinguish the difference between these two technologies except that AMD is an open standard, what are the main differences and security issues of each of them?

    Unfortunately, we can't provide recommendations. There are tons of sites comparing these two. – schroeder Oct 18 '16 at 19:05

    Security isn't a quantifiable property. Either a system is vulnerable to a certain attack or it is not. That makes such gorilla vs. shark fights undecidable. – Philipp Oct 18 '16 at 19:35

DASH being open standard assures 2 things:

  • bugs can be found and fixed pretty fast, with the involvement of the community
  • there are no hidden backdoors

vPro has 2 problems:

  • is closed source and you cannot check for manufacturer back-doors

  • it was already hacked several times

So my vote goes to DASH hands down.
