Question about one typical SGX usage scenario

Dear all,

I am a newbie to SGX and would like to use this feature to secure our https communication. Am I thinking to develop and launch the following scenario, but not sure whether it is indeed feasible, or whether SGX is supposed to be used in this way. 

1. developed a Windows/Linux application, which leverages the SGX supported OpenSSL or WolfSSL.

2. distribute the compiled binary applications to *untrusted* users.

3. Following the standard way, the applications communicates with the server and generates a symmetric secret before communication through https.

4. To protect the generated symmetric secret, I would like to put it in the enclave for security purpose. 

Is SGX supposed to be used in this way? Any suggestion and advice would be strongly appreciated, thank you!

Hi,

Yes. You can develop the secure communication using SGX

1. developed a Windows/Linux application, which leverages the SGX supported OpenSSL or WolfSSL.

2. distribute the compiled binary applications to *untrusted* users.

  • You can distribute the binary applications to other users that has SGX support platform

3. Following the standard way, the applications communicates with the server and generates a symmetric secret before communication through https.

  • Use Remote Attestation to Communicate with Server

4. To protect the generated symmetric secret, I would like to put it in the enclave for security purpose. 

  • Use ​Sealing Process
