Security Perimeter

The security perimeter for the IBM 370 Keykos was the machine room. The security perimeter for Intel’s SGX is the CPU chip. I propose a perimeter about the size of a cell phone, tablet or lap-top. It is clear that Intel wants to convince Hollywood that SGX is capable of protecting Hollywood’s proprietary information from the ‘user’. My plan is more focused on protecting the secrets and integrity of the affairs of the owner-operator.

I think an arrangement with Disney is also compatible with this technology but tamper resistance would be necessary. I would have to be convinced that running SGX within the system does not damage system security.
