What is SGX type of instance?

Confidential computing enables organizations to better protect their sensitive data when it is being actively processed by placing it in a secure, hardware-enforced area of system memory. This is primarily relevant for financial services, healthcare, government, defense and retail.

Intel SGX is a set of security-related instruction codes that are built into latest Intel CPUs. SGX dedicates part of the system memory to create encrypted Enclave. Data and code originating in the enclave are decrypted on the fly within the CPU, being protected from examination or read by other code, including code running at higher privilege levels such as the OS and hypervisors.

Gcore Cloud VM service is supporting Intel Software Guard Extensions (SGX) technology today.

The SGX type is a virtual machine supporting Intel Software Guard Extensions (SGX) technology. Intel SGX is a set of security-related instruction codes that are built into some Intel CPUs. SGX involves encryption by the CPU of a portion of memory (the enclave). Data and code originating in the enclave are decrypted on the fly within the CPU, protecting them from being examined or read by other code, including code running at higher privilege levels such the operating system and any underlying hypervisors.
