Somnath Chakrabarti, Senior Security Researcher, Intel
In this presentation we’ll describe the usage of Intel® Software Guard Extensions (Intel® SGX) to secure various components and features of OMEC while operating in a cloud environment, closing a critical security gap when migrating to open platforms in the cloud. More specifically, we’ll describe a novel system architecture that allows operators to scale out billing/charging records at network speed by using distributed Intel SGX platforms to meet necessary security and performance requirements. Securing charging/billing records facilitate operators’ internal and external auditing process with regulatory authorities. Additionally, we’ll also show how we can protect the data plane path using Intel SGX thus providing a secure communication path through the platform operating in the cloud.
