CONFIG_IWLMEI: Intel Management Engine communication over WLAN

General informations

The Linux kernel configuration item CONFIG_IWLMEI:

Help text

Enables the iwlmei kernel module.

CSME stands for Converged Security and Management Engine. It is a CPU on the chipset and runs a dedicated firmware. AMT (Active Management Technology) is one of the applications that run on that CPU. AMT allows to control the platform remotely.

This kernel module allows to communicate with the Intel Management Engine over Wifi. This is supported starting from Tiger Lake platforms and has been tested on 9260 devices only. If AMT is configured not to use the wireless device, this module is harmless (and useless). Enabling this option on a platform that has a different device and has Wireless enabled on AMT can prevent WiFi from working correctly.
