Security and Privacy | Ensuring Trust at Every Level
Increasing cyber-attacks, video manipulation, and identity theft are driving the need for advanced security measures. Intel Labs’ wide-ranging security research aims to maintain the integrity and confidentiality of data that is stored, in use, or in transit.
Unleasing the Potential of Data
Cybersecurity threats including hacks, data breaches, and malicious attacks are disrupting companies, individuals, and governments. These unlawful acts are also becoming more sophisticated and continue to evolve as data usage grows. In addition, as cloud computing, AI, machine learning (ML), and the intelligent edge revolutionize computing, security will play a major role in successfully implementing next-generation applications.
Since data is dynamic, it must be protected at every level – while at rest, in use, or in transit. As computing moves from on-premises to the public cloud to the edge, safeguarding intellectual property is paramount. Maintaining data integrity, privacy, and accuracy is at the heart of Intel Labs’ security research efforts.
Research spans across several areas from workload and data protection to trusted execution environments (TEE). Isolating sensitive data with hardware-based memory protections can help defend data from malicious attacks. Our main areas of security research include confidential computing, federated learning, and fully homomorphic encryption.
