TYSONS CORNER, VA, July 26, 2021 — Steve Orrin, federal chief technology officer at Intel, has discussed how the use of confidential computing and other data encryption approaches could help government agencies safeguard classified information from breaches, GovCon Wire reported July 16.
“Confidential computing works by having the CPU reserve a section of memory as a secure enclave, encrypting the memory in the enclave with a key unique to the CPU. Data and application code placed in the enclave can be decrypted only within that enclave, on that CPU. Even if attackers gained root access to the system, they wouldn’t be able to read the data,” Orrin noted.
