Can we develop SGx hardened applications in Linux?

Hi,

Throughout reading and learning more about SGx, it is now interesting to develop applications in linux with it.

In the post: https://software.intel.com/en-us/blogs/2016/04/11/intel-software-guard-extensions-sdk-for-linux-avai...

it had mentioned that "The initial codebase should be considered ‘Beta’ quality and has been validated as such on Intel® 6th Gen Core based platforms that support Intel® SGX"

What does it mean of 'Beta' quality? does it mean that we can not use it for production real-life applications for linux?

It has been over a year now, and I haven't read yet if the code has now passed this stage...

Can we not develop SGx hardened applications in linux?

Hi, Mashiro.

SGX for Linux is no longer considered as Beta quality. It was only considered Beta up to version 1.5. Intel has now released version 1.9 of it on github (documentation is still missing at 01.org).

Best regards,

Rodolfo
