Confidential Computing addresses the main need with Intel® Software Guard Extensions

Intel® Software Guard Extensions (SGX) is a security-related instruction set of built-in CPUs that helps protect data-in-use via application isolation technology. Intel® SGX allows user-level code to allocate private regions of memory, called enclaves, which are designed to be protected from processes running at higher privilege levels.

Intel® SGX creates secure enclaves* where code can be securely executed and where data or “secrets” ( e.g. financial records, hospital records, personal ID information, passwords, encryption keys, etc.) can be loaded. It enables applications to execute code and protect data inside their own trusted execution environment. It prevents software attacks, even when the Application, the OS, or the BIOS has been compromised.

In CloudSigma, you can rest assured that we regard our customers’ data security and privacy as a top priority. Adding the next-generation Intel® SGX confidential computing VMs to our portfolio enhances the protection we deliver even further. 

*Enclaves – containerized sections of memory. Enclaves are trusted execution environments (TEE) that utilize a separate portion of memory that is encrypted for TEE use.
