Rethink zero trust with confidential computing technologies and in service mesh
Zero Trust allows organizations to protect employees and users accessing organizations’ data and applications now distributed across on-prem data centers, edge, and cloud. Digital transformation, post-pandemic new normal, and ever-increasing cybersecurity threat are few of the drivers. Protecting credentials (key, token, etc.) is critical in Zero Trust implementations. This session introduces use of confidential computing enabled by Intel Secure Guard Extension (Intel SGX) to harden both Zero Trust Network Access (VPNaaS) in Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) and Zero Trust security in service mesh.
Xiang Wang is a platform solution architect from Intel. He works on defining network security solutions for enterprise and cloud including SASE zero trust network access (ZTNA), secure web gateway, confidential computing, etc. He also has led the software development on pattern matching, deep packet inspection, network security systems such as IDS/IPS and WAF.
