I am running ubuntu 20.04 on WSL and trying to run a project on SGX, but when I install SGX-Driver-1.4.1 I get the error "failed to build driver"

Hi,

 

We found out that SGX is not enabled in WSL at all. Therefore, it is not possible to compile/ load it in WSL.

Like a hypervisor or VMM, SGX would have to be passed through as a feature to WSL.

 

Confirm that SGX is not enabled by running:

 

sudo cpuid | grep -i sgx

 

You should see everything come back as false, including SGX: Software Guard Extensions supported = false.

Let us know if you have any questions regards to this issue.

Thank you.

 

Regards,

Ken

Hi,

 

Thank you for your interest in Intel® SGX.

 

Please check if the platform supports SGX/FLC. We have an article that may be useful for your use cases.

 

Based on the article, we suggest these steps to test on your platform.

On a Linux* system, execute cpuid in a terminal:

 

Open a terminal and run: $ cpuid | grep -i sgx

Look for output: SGX_LC: SGX launch config supported = true

 

Hope that the information provided is useful. Let us know if you have any questions regards to this issue.

Thank you.

 

Regards,

Ken
