Intel SGX development on older generation of Intel processor

Is it possible to do Intel SGX development on the older generation of Intel processor that does not have SGX support with some simulation environment?

I tried to install SGX SDK which installed correctly but could not able to install SGX PSW as supporting Intel SGX processor is a hard requirement for it.

I wanted to develop and learn simple SGX application.

Hi,

You only need SGX PSW if you are going to run the SGX applications in HW mode.
You can develop and test your SGX applications using simulation mode. Better information can be found here.

There is also a good blog on how you can run SGX on simulation mode at

https://software.intel.com/en-us/blogs/2016/05/30/usage-of-simulation-mode-in-sgx-enhanced-application

It also includes the link to a sample code application using SGX simulation.
