Intel Software Guard Extension (Intel SGX) technology enables developers to protect their software from a variety of threats. In this talk we will discuss several innovative use cases for Intel SGX, beyond basic key management.

Intel SGX can support containerized software packages without re-factoring applications. SGX can provide the foundation for blockchain architectures, significantly reducing power and resource consumption.

SGX can also provide a platform for high bandwidth Network Function Virtualization (NFV) of a wide variety of workloads, decreasing infrastructure costs and protecting critical computation.
