Hardened Security for Intel Processors

Protect High-Value Data Through a Hardened Full-Stack Security Solution

Lockheed Martin Hardened Security for Intel processors is a virtualized platform that offers a full security run-time solution, which isolates and protects customer domains. It offers a full range of security controls that provide improved availability through more deterministic quality of service (QoS), greater data confidentiality through isolation and robust integrity and encryption with a secure chain of trust from boot through runtime. This deployment helps protect your most valued workloads and data from edge to cloud.



High Performance Compute

Near Real Time Preservation of Data



Hardened Security Capabilities

  • Partitioning and isolation of shared resources, including cache, cores, memory and devices in the virtualized environment.
  • Cryptographic ID support of attestation and encrypted communication, including in-line memory encryption.
  • Isolation techniques to create more runtime security domains within a trusted virtualization environment.
  • Hardware-enforced firewalling to separate sensitive data from untrusted workloads and provide more deterministic workload performance for multi-core Intel processors. 
  • Resistance to unauthorized modifications with advanced security controls to manage virtual machines within a trusted virtualization environment.
  • Hardware encrypted memory protection.

Penetration Testing Results

To evaluate the full capabilities of Hardened Security, a penetration test was conducted by a third-party security consulting firm, InfusionPoints, in the spring of 2019. This rigorous test analyzed Hardened Security’s BIOS, secure boot and forensic drive images to find weaknesses and launched multiple attacks from tenant domain against other tenants and system resources. The test found that Hardened Security (referred to as the SRE in the report) significantly reduces the attack surface and mitigates side channel attacks. Ultimately, the test was unable to successfully circumvent the protections provided by Hardened Security. Click the button below to download and read the full report.

Advanced Enterprise Security

Protect your most valued resources through an integrated, hardened, full-stack security solution that helps ensure confidentiality, integrity and availability for high-value data.

Boot Protections

Lockheed Martin’s Hardened Security solution provides a chain of trust to verify and maintain system integrity from power-on through the launching of your most critical applications at runtime.

Enhanced Quality of Service

More consistent and deterministic performance with isolated virtual machines through the segmentation and ideal allocation of compute resources. QoS for consistent performance through partitioning and isolation, in addition to delivering trusted virtual machines with protected runtimes

Predictive Workload Determinism

Lockheed Martin’s Hardened Security is a fully predictable solution that is a repeatable, low jitter discriminator for time-critical processing.

Runtime Security

User controls and security choices isolate and protect virtualized workloads. Provides isolation with integrity and confidentiality of shared resources including cores, cache, memory and devices.

Reduced Total Cost of Ownership

Lockheed Martin’s Hardened Security solution is tested and verified by Intel to optimize price and performance and reduce infrastructure total cost of ownership and evaluation time.  

Our Story

The Lockheed Martin Intel Cyber Secure Processing Collaboration was started to respond to the intensifying scope and force of cyber-attacks. Combining decades of Intel’s hardware experience and processor capabilities with Lockheed Martin’s global security expertise, this partnership has led to first-of-their-kind solutions that deliver a new level of protection against physical, cyber and supply-chain threats using enhanced security and performance features.
