Microconferences at Linux Plumbers Conference: Confidential Computing

Linux Plumbers Conference 2022 is pleased to host the Confidential Computing Microconference.

The Confidential Computing Microconference brings together plumbers enabling secure execution features in hypervisors, firmware, Linux Kernel, over low-level user space up to container runtimes.

Good progress was made on a couple of topics since the last year, but enabling Confidential Computing in the Linux ecosystem is an ongoing process, and there are still many problems to solve. The most important ones are:

  • Design and implementation of Intel TDX and AMD SEV-SNP host support
  • Linux kernel memory management changes for secure execution environments
  • Support of upcoming secure execution hardware extensions from ARM and RISC-V
  • Pre-launch and runtime attestation workflows
  • Interrupt security for AMD SEV-SNP
  • Debuggability and live migration of encrypted virtual machines
  • Proper testing of confidential computing support code

Please come and join us in the discussion for solutions to the open problems for supporting these technologies!

We hope to see you there!
