Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Our latest trawl of domain names registered by Intel has pointed us to www.udigwg.org, a site aimed at Unix developers seeking to create solutions for IA-32 and IA-64 servers. According to the blurb, "The UNIX* Developer's Interface Guide for Intel-based Servers is a specification that will focus on specific areas affecting the development of common hardware interfaces for the UNIX* operating system and peripheral devices for 32-bit and IA-64 based server systems. The content is being developed by a working group made up of leading UNIX* OSVs, BIOSs vendors and IHVs. The guide contains a description of system and component architecture from existing industry standards and future technology trends to provide a context for programmers and system engineers. By adhering to the UDIG specification, companies developing UNIX* products aimed at Intel-based server platforms will benefit from reduced porting costs and access to a much broader selection of compatible software and hardware devices." There are other companies involved in the site but they haven't got round to putting their logos up there yet. ®
