(I hope part of AMD’s security plans also include provide us a tool like — or a port of — CHIPSEC, to help their partners ship secure systems, and for owners to verify the systems’ firmware vulnerabilities, initially, and over time. Personally, I’ve found that once you have a tool like that to help you with HW/FW verification, you get nervous running a system with a CPU that doesn’t have without similar tools to verify that system. Dealing with security at design-time is nice, but having a run-time tool to test things is also very nice.)
