Google, Intel, Microsoft, and seven other companies have created the Confidential Computing Consortium (CCC). Technology giants believe that customer data must be securely encrypted and protected on an ongoing basis, including during their use, when they are most vulnerable to attack by malicious users.
To ensure full user privacy, the consortium members will develop an open-source technology that will provide complete and permanent information protection.
According to reports, Microsoft will develop software for a secure runtime, and Intel will provide code protection at the hardware level. In addition, the consortium intends to use the Red Hat tool, which can abstract secure environments to the level that allows you to create and run private "serverless" applications. The CCC will be led by the Linux Foundation, a non-profit organization.
Ultimately, the consortium members intend to ensure that user data is always encrypted and restricted to unauthorized persons.
