Confidential Computing

Confidential Computing offers a hardware-based security solution designed to protect data during use with application-isolation technology. The Confidential Computing Consortium was formed in 2019, with participation from major companies like Google, Intel, Meta, and Microsoft, to advocate for hardware-based

Trusted Execution Environments (TEEs). These TEEs isolate computations, providing security for the data being used. However, the main drawback of this approach is the increased cost for companies to migrate their machine learning services onto platforms that offer these specialized hardware infrastructures. It’s also worth noting that while it provides security benefits, confidential computing is not entirely without risks.
