Intel® Trusted Execution Technology Enables High-Performance Cloud
The case study looks at how DuPont built a private, high-performance cloud infrastructure using available technologies, including Intel® Trusted Execution Technology (Intel® TXT).
The cloud service provides DuPont research and development with the highly leveraged, on-demand resources it needs to support growth in modeling, simulation, informatics, and analytics, while increasing data center security and compliance capabilities.
Intel TXT creates a foundation of trust that is rooted in hardware and extends to other areas of the infrastructure. It provides a launch environment that cryptographically measures server hardware and software elements in the launch environment against known good values that are stored within a protected memory area. If the values align, the boot process continues in a trusted state. If the values do not align, the platform boots into an untrusted state. Systems management software then can detect the platform’s untrusted status and take appropriate action.
