How does confidential computing enhance Zero Trust?

Confidential computing enhances Zero Trust by providing a secure execution environment for sensitive workloads, even in untrusted environments.

Zero Trust calls for constant verification of all resource access but ensuring that the underlying cloud infrastructure is reliable and secure might be challenging.

The hardware-based security mechanism offered by confidential computing solves this problem by enabling the processing and storage of sensitive data in a safe enclave isolated from the host system and other potentially vulnerable components.

The confidential data inside the secure enclave cannot be accessed, even if an attacker gains access to the system.

Even in the most complex and unreliable situations, confidential computing enables enterprises to have greater confidence in the security of their data and workloads.
