*       Intel(R) Management Engine Components (Intel(R) ME components) 
*	User Notification Service (UNS)
*
**********************************************************************


**********************************************************************
*  1. Overview
**********************************************************************
User Notification Service (UNS): 
This service enables Intel(R) Management Engine technologies to write user notifications
to the local host OS event log and the WMI interface for the purpose of notifying end users about predefined events, such as when critical System 
Defense policies are applied by the ME firmware. Intel lists these events in the SDK, enabling an ISV to extract the events from the 
event log for use in their applications.	

UNS service also provides NAC (via a plugin) and NAP functionality. To 
enable NAP, see the Installation Note below. 


**********************************************************************
*  2. System Requirements
**********************************************************************

UNS service is supported on the following operating systems:
	- Windows* XP SP1/2 (32 bit)
	- Windows Vista* (32 and 64 bit)
	- Windows 7* (32 and 64 bit)


**********************************************************************
*  3. Install steps
**********************************************************************


To install the UNS service, run setup.exe and 
note the following installation circumstances:

1) TLS:
	If Intel AMT is configured to work with TLS then any application that wants to 
	communicate with the Intel AMT PC must be able to verify the server certificate
	that intel AMT sends. 
	To do that, the root certificate (which signed the Intel AMT certificate) must be 
	installed (by the IT administrator) in Windows’s trusted root certificate store.
	
	Being a service, the UNS runs in the system context (not as a user process),
	and as such does not see the same certificate store. 
	For the UNS to have access to the root certificate, it must be installed using the 
	“mmc” tool, as is specified in step 4 in: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/901183/

2) Mutual Authentication TLS:
	If Intel AMT is configured to use mutual authentication TLS for local 
	(this can be set separately for remote and local), then when local applications
	try to connect, Intel AMT will require from them a client certificate for verification.
	This client certificate must be installed in Windows’s personal certificate store.

	Again, as was the case with the server certificate, the UNS being a service means that 
	the IT administrator must install the client certificate using steps 1-3 of the above 
	link.

	Furthermore the UNS must be told which client certificate in the store to actually
 	use,which can be done with the following command line argument: “-cert <cert name>”.
	(Services can receive arguments either on the command line (using the “sc” command) 
	or in the graphical service controller window.)


3) HTTP Credentials:
	Regardless of the TLS situation, the UNS uses SOAP calls to Intel AMT and requires 
	credentials. The UNS calls two WS-MAN services in Intel AMT: User Notification and
 	Endpoint Access Control. These two realms might have different access privileges 
	(that is, different users can be part of these realms). 
	By default there is no need for credentials to access the above two realms for 
	the UNS to work. However, the administrator can decide to block this 
	anonymous access and mandate credentials for one or both of the above realms. 
	This can be done using the SetAclEnabledState SOAP command in the Security 
	Administration interface.

	If credentials are needed for these realms, they need to be passed to the 
	UNS as arguments: “-unsUser <user name> -unsPass <password>” for the User 
	Notification realm, and “-eacUser <user name> -eacPass <password>” for the Endpoint 
	Access Control realm.
	A property of the above credentials is that the UNS saves them for the next time it 
	is run. This means that the UNS can be started once with the credentials as arguments,
	stopped, and then restarted without the credentials and they will still be used 
	(as long as Intel AMT is configured to require them). This allows the administrator to 
	run the UNS without the credentials showing in the process table as the UNS process’s 
	arguments.

Note: 	Enabling NAP is currently a manual process. To enable NAP, ensure that the UNS is
	not running, then run the following command: "UNS.exe RegisterNap". Restart the UNS.
	To disable the NAP access, ensure that the UNS is not running, then run:
	"UNS.exe UnregisterNap"


**********************************************************************
*  4. UNS Registry Configuration Parameters
**********************************************************************
	
You can configure the following parameters in the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Intel\IntelAMTUNS\ConfigData 
registry key of the Intel AMT:

	AMTStatusPollingInterval:  The interval in milliseconds between event polling requests sent from the UNS to the Intel AMT.
				    Recommended values: 1000 to 60000; Default = 10000

	GetPostureInterval:        The interval in milliseconds between posture information requests sent from the UNS to the Intel AMT.
				   Recommended values: 1000 to 600000; Default = 300000



**********************************************************************
*  5. Uninstall procedure
**********************************************************************

(Note that this will also remove LMS, SOL, etc.)

For XP: 
1. Click Start > Control Panel, double-click Add or Remove Programs.
2. Select Intel(R) Active Management Technology and click Remove.

For Vista and Windows 7:
In Programs and Features, select Intel ® Management Engine Components and click Remove.
