Deterministic Security with Intel SGX from Fortanix – Intel Conversations in the Cloud – Episode 147
In this Intel Conversations in the Cloud audio podcast: We’re joined on this episode of Conversations in the Cloud by Andy Leiserson, Chief Architect at Fortanix. Andy outlines the company’s belief in deterministic security and the need to protect data while it’s in use, in addition to the traditionally protected data at rest and in transit. Fortanix uses Intel Software Guard Extensions (Intel SGX) in its Runtime Encryption Platform and Self-Defending Key Management Service. Intel SGX helps create a trusted execution environment where applications bring their own security, allowing those apps to run in a secure enclave. This allows customers utilizing cloud services to maintain the security of their own apps even while running in an untrusted cloud. A prime example is their solution for disrupting the Hardware Security Module (HSM) with a less costly, more manageable, and more scalable cloud-native key management service. Andy sees customers excited about the new data protections Intel SGX offers, particularly at runtime.
