Intel Software Guard Extensions (Intel SGX) is an extension to Intel Architecture designed to increase the security of software. In this approach, rather than attempting to identify and isolate all the malware on the platform, legitimate software can be sealed inside an enclave and protected from attack by malware, irrespective of the its privilege level. In the talk I will touch on the building blocks of security, describe the basics of Intel SGX, and show how the components, combined, provide a holistic secure solution.
