Microsoft, Google Cloud, IBM, Intel, Alibaba, ARM, Baidu, Red Hat, Swisscom and Tencent formed data protection consortium.
Confidential Computing Consortium Designed to accelerate the development of open source technologies that provide truly confidential access to data. Ideally, data should always be encrypted or otherwise protected from unauthorized access.
In general, the initiative aims to promote the concept of “confidential computing” with data encryption during their use. The term “confidential computing” was coined by Microsoft.
Among the solutions that are already open, they include the Microsoft framework for creating code for running in the Trusted Execution Environment (TEE), the Intel framework for protecting code at the hardware level, and the Red Hat tool that abstracts protected environments to a level , allowing you to safely create and run applications in TEE.
The new organization will operate based on the Linux Foundation.
