We've known for a long time that we need encryption for data at rest and in transit: the Linux Foundation recently formed the Confidential Computing Consortium to encourage use of technologies to help you do encryption for data in use.

Enarx is an application deployment system enabling applications to run within Trusted Execution Environments (TEEs) without rewriting for particular platforms or SDKs. You will learn why confidential computing is so important, why it is so hard, and how Enarx is designed to make it easier and more manageable without sacrificing security. Technologies include Rust, virtualization, WebAssembly, Trusted Execution Environments. We will examine the architecture and workflow, and provide a demo of the existing state of the project, which is currently targeting AMD and Intel hardware.
