Intel Corp. and its partners are working on security technology for notebooks called Anti-Theft Technology (ATT), the chip maker announced this week.

“Intel Anti-Theft technology is set to become available in laptops towards the end of 2008. According to the company, the technology will be able to disable system from working, disable data access and protect hard disk drive (by encrypting all the data),” X-Bit Labs reports.

ATT will be a part of Intel’s Active Management Technology, present in Centrino Pro branded business laptops. Centrino Pro includes professional tools for administration, manageability, and security, which are not present in Centrino Duo systems.

Details of Anti-Theft technology are currently unknown, but Intel said it develops ATT in partnership with Absolute Software, Fujitsu-Siemens Computers, Lenovo, McAfee, Phoenix Technologies and Ultimaco Software.
