In era of cloud computing, security is becoming more and more critical for customers. In existing HW/SW architecture hypervisor does not protect tenants against the cloud provider and thus the supplied operating system and hardware. Intel Software Guard Extension (SGX) provides a mechanism that addresses this scenario. It aims at protecting user-level software from attacks from other processes, the operating system, and even physical attackers. Intel SGX makes such protection possible through the use of enclave, which is a protected area in userspace application where the code/data cannot be accessed directly by any software from outside. This presentation intends to give you an introduction of Intel SGX technology, including what it is, how it works, and the existing SW stack to enable SGX for customers, followed by introduction of our work to support SGX virtualization in Xen hypervisor, including the high-level design, current status and future plan.
