Microsoft readies kit for security initiative

Friday, 20 June 2003, 1:48 PM EST

Microsoft at the Microsoft Professional Developers Conference in Los Angeles in October plans to release a preliminary software development kit for its Next-Generation Secure Computing Base (NGSCB) security technology, also known as Palladium.

The kit will give developers an early opportunity to work with the NGSCB code in preparation for developing applications that take advantage of the technology, according to Microsoft. The company hopes to introduce NGSCB itself in the Longhorn version of the Windows client operating system, which is due in 2005.

"[The kit] will give developers the ability to work with the code. It will be very preliminary and basic," said Mario Juarez, Microsoft group product manager for Windows Trusted Platform Technologies, in Redmond, Wash. Juarez demonstrated NGSCB at Microsoft offices in Mountain View, Calif., on Thursday morning.
