is the codename for an evolutionary set of features for Microsoft Windows operating
system. When compared with a new breed of hardware and applications, these features
will give individuals and group of users greater data security, personnel privacy
and system integrity. Palladium provides a solid basis for trust to perform more
and more important financial, legal and other transactions: a foundation on which
privacy-and security-service software can be built. The hardware part is based
on Intel's "Trusted Computing Platform Alliance"(TCPA), which provides
for a monitoring and reporting component to be mounted in PC.
/Palladium provides a platform on which one can't tamper with the applications,
and where these applications can communicate securely with the vendor.In June
2002, Microsoft released information regarding its new "Palladium" initiative.
Palladium is a system that combines software and hardware controls to create a
"trusted" computing platform. In doing so, it would establish an unprecedented
level of control over users and their computers.
could place Microsoft as the gatekeeper of identification and authentication.
Additionally, systems embedded in both software and hardware would control access
to content, thereby creating ubiquitous schemes that can track users and control
use of media. Microsoft expects to have elements of the system in place by 2004.
Known Elements of the Palladium System are:-
system purports to stop viruses by preventing the running of malicious programs.
b).The system will store personal data within an encrypted folder.
system will depend on hardware that has either a digital signature or a tracking
d).The system will filter spam.
e).The system has a personal
information sharing agent called "My Man."
f).The system will incorporate
Digital Rights Management technologies for media files of all types (music, documents,
e-mail communications). Additionally, the system purports to transmit data within
the computer via encrypted paths.
