The setup and configuration of an Intel AMT device in enterprise mode requires a configuration (previously known as provision) profile. Configuration profiles contain Intel AMT configuration parameters. Profiles determine which features are enabled in the device, what authentication mechanism to use, and which users have access to device features.
You can define as many configuration profiles as you want. For example, you can use a different profile for different sites. Each profile can be assigned to one or more Intel AMT devices.
A configuration profile can contain auxiliary profiles, which configure additional Intel AMT features.
You can use the following auxiliary profiles in a configuration profile:
The 802.1x profiles let you specify security settings and can be applied to configuration and wireless profiles.
Management Presence Servers
Contains the list of Management Presence Servers (MPS) that you can use in a Remote Access Policy.
Remote Access Policies
A remote access policy contains the information that is needed for the Intel AMT devices to connect to the Management Presence Servers (MPS). MPS is needed for the client-initiated remote access (CIRA) functionality.
Trusted Root Certificates
Certificates are used for the Remote Configuration and TLS features.
Wireless profiles let you specify wireless settings and are applied to configuration profiles. For each configuration profile, there can be multiple wireless profiles applied to it to specify settings for multiple wireless access points.
