TLS_PSK vs TLS_PKI

Hi,

I would like to know, if I use TLS-PSK provisioning. I read below about PID/PPS , Does that mean, PID?PPS only used during provisioning stage and normal day to day communication between SCS server and AMT device is not secure??

A pair of security keys that are used to ensure secure

communications between the configuration server and the Intel

AMT computer. After a computer is configured, these keys are

no longer used.

These keys are generated and entered into the IntelAMTdevice

during the initialization process.

Thanks

Soni

The use of the PID and PPS pair is only used for initial provisioning. Actual secure management of systems starts by reviewing Understanding Provisioning Models - Basic, Standard, & Advanced for explanation.-- http://communities.intel.com/docs/DOC-1323 http://communities.intel.com/docs/DOC-1323. You then can make decisions on what type of security you need.
