Abstract: 

In the "arms race" of security, new defensive tactics are always needed. One significant approach is Confidential Computing: a technology that can isolate data and execution in a secure space on a system, which takes the concept of security to new levels. This SNIA Cloud Storage Technologies Initiative (CSTI) webcast will provide an introduction and explanation of Confidential Computing and will feature a panel of industry architects responsible for defining Confidential Compute. It will be a lively conversation on topics including:

  • The basics of hardware-based Trusted Execution Environments (TEEs) and how they work to enable confidential computing
  • How to architect solutions based around TEEs
  • How this foundation fits with other security technologies
  • Adjacencies to storage technologies
