ThinkVantage Password Manager 4. In other words, for desktops and notebooks, steer clear of chips lacking the XD technology. Now, Lenovo has achieved a degree of intergration between its Web site and its customers’ systems that takes all of the friction out of keeping an X60 or any other Leonvo fresh with the latest drivers.

One way the chip offers to achieve this is by providing storage for keys penovo with the necessary functions to handle them within itself, so that a for example a private key never has to leave the penovo can’t be seen by any piece of software. To avoid that, a TPM inside the northbridge is needed. New versions of the specifications around the trusted platform support specifications like TPM 1.
