Microsoft Dusts Off 'Palladium' Security for Longhorn
Contributed by: G3nu1n3, at 4/15/2005 08:39:00 PM.

Redmond updates the game plan for its next-generation Windows security system, now set to debut in Longhorn. Developers this month will receive the first shiny pieces of the Next Generation Secure Computing Base in a preview build.

When Microsoft distributes the preview release of Longhorn at the WinHEC at the end of this month, it will look quite different from the early Longhorn bits it distributed at the same show a year ago.

Unlike last year's Longhorn Windows Hardware Engineering Conference preview build, this year's will include the first pieces of Microsoft's built-in Windows security system.

That system—originally code-named "Palladium," (and more recently, "Next-Generation Secure Computing Base," or NGSCB)—has been one of the most controversial of the planned Longhorn components, since Microsoft first detailed it in 2003.

NGSCB, as Microsoft originally outlined it, was to be one of the key components of the company's overarching Trustworthy Computing Initiative.

The two foundations of NGSCB were designed to be the Trusted Platform Module on the hardware side, and the Trusted Operating Root (or "nexus") on the software side.

Microsoft officials admitted this at WinHEC 2004, as well, and said at that time that Microsoft was going back to the drawing board with NGSCB.

During the past year, Microsoft executives have declined repeated requests for more information on NGSCB. The silence led some industry watchers to speculate that NGSCB was dead.
