Secured-core is a new feature of Microsoft Windows Server 2022 that brings powerful threat protections together to provide multi-layer security across hardware, firmware, and the operating system. It uses the Trusted Platform Module 2.0 and System Guard to boot up Windows Server securely and minimize risks from firmware vulnerabilities.

To be certified for Secured-core, new server firmware protection features are required. Currently only ThinkSystem servers with 3rd Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processors are certified, however ThinkSystem servers with AMD EPYC 7003 Series processors are also planned in the near future.

This document introduces Secured-core feature, and shows users how to enable it on supported Lenovo® ThinkSystem servers. This paper is intended for IT specialists and IT administrators who are familiar with security features of Windows Server and want to enable Secured-core on applicable Lenovo servers running Windows Server 2022.
