The results of research on security issues of the Windows 11 operating system were discussed 2021-12-23 10:30:00 / CONFERENCES

The next online scientific seminar of the 3rd department of the Institute of Information Technology of ANAS was held. Rashid Alakbarov, executive director of the Institute, head of department, PhD in technical sciences, associate professor, said that discussions on "Windows 11 operating system and security issues" will be held at the seminar.

Kamran Jafarzadeh, a researcher at the institute, who presented the report, said that Windows 11 is an operating system (OS) that is part of Windows NT, developed by Microsoft. The system, a successor to Windows 10, was released to the public on October 5 this year.

Then the speaker spoke about the minimum system requirements of Windows 11. Said that, the system must have a CPU processor that supports at least 64 bits, 1 gigahertz (GHz) or more, 4 gigabytes (GB) of RAM, and 64 GB or more of storage.

Speaking about the new features and requirements of the operating system, K. Jafarzadeh noted that these programs are available in the Amazon appstore: A router that supports Fi 6E is required.

He also noted that Windows 11 has a number of security features, including the Trusted Platform Module (TPM 2.0) and Virtualization-Based Security (VBS), which require strict system requirements.

The researcher talked about the concept of TPM (Reliable Platform Module). He noted that TPM is a microchip integrated into the computer's motherboard: "The purpose of this platform is to help protect encryption keys, user credentials and other sensitive information behind the barrier. As a result, malware and attackers cannot access or interfere with that information.”

Jafarzadeh also clarified the concept of Virtualization-Based Security (VBS). He said VBS uses hardware virtualization features to create and isolate a secure memory area from the operating system.

At the end, there was a wide exchange of views on the report, questions were answered.

Rashid Alakbarov, the head of the department, stressed the importance of expanding research on Windows 11 and its distinctive features from other Windows operating systems.
