Google, Intel and Microsoft to form a Data Protection Consortium

The recent developments in the data protection world has pushed the companies-giants Google, Intel, Microsoft and seven other companies to formed the Confidential Computing Consortium in order to help in “defining and accelerating” open source tech that delivers truly private data access. The idea behind the consortium is to secure the data in a way to always be encrypted or otherwise limited to whoever is meant to be looking.

In order to put this idea into work, Microsoft framework is designed in a way to help you to write code to run inside Trusted Execution Environments, an Intel framework for protecting code at the hardware level and a Red Hat tool that abstracts secure environments to the point where you can create and run private “serverless” apps.

We will keep an eye on how this project progress, as at the current moment there is obviously many a public commitments towards it.
