Intel today announced a new CPU-level security capability known as Control-Flow Enforcement Technology (Intel CET) that offers protection against malware using control-flow hijacking attack methods on devices with Intel's future Tiger Lake mobile processors.

"Intel CET is designed to protect against the misuse of legitimate code through control-flow hijacking attacks–widely used techniques in large classes of malware," Intel VP & GM of Client Security Strategy and Initiatives Tom Garrison said.

"Intel has been actively collaborating with Microsoft and other industry partners to address control-flow hijacking by using Intel’s CET technology to augment the previous software-only control-flow integrity solutions," Intel Fellow, Client Computing Group, Baiju Patel added.
