Noname Security and Intel Trust Authority: Building Trust Through Confidential Computing

Intel’s Trust Authority is a new service that provides remote verification of the trustworthiness of a compute asset, based on attestation (cryptographic verification) and policy (a legitimate workload). This is a significant development for confidential computing, as it provides a way for organizations to independently verify the security of their workloads.

Noname Security is excited to be a partner in the Intel Trust Authority program. We believe that our machine learning-based security solutions can play a vital role in helping organizations to protect their sensitive data and applications.

Noname Security, combined with the Intel Trust Authority, ensures your private data stays private, as the entire virtual machine runs in an “enclave” – an encrypted memory region that provides confidentiality for data and code execution. It’s an instance of a Trusted Execution Environment (TEE) which is secured by hardware. Workloads not running in an encrypted enclave can be vulnerable to data compromise through unencrypted memory. Even more appealing, the solution runs in the cloud, on-premises, or a hybrid model without compromising security. This is all a part of the tremendous security value of confidential computing.

Here are some of the specific benefits of using Noname Security and Intel Trust Authority together:

  • Increased trust: Intel Trust Authority provides independent verification of the trustworthiness of your confidential computing environment. This gives you peace of mind knowing that your data and applications are protected.
  • Enhanced security: Noname Security’s machine learning-based solution detects and prevents API attacks targeting your sensitive data without exposing that same data in unencrypted file stores, data lakes, or even RAM.
  • Improved compliance: Noname Security and Intel Trust Authority help you to meet a variety of compliance requirements, such as HIPAA and PCI DSS. This is important for organizations in regulated industries.

Noname is the first and only API security vendor to offer confidential computing services immediately on Microsoft Azure, IBM Cloud, and Google Cloud. Together, we can help you to build a more secure and compliant environment for your most sensitive data and applications.
