KCN GOLEM, INTEL, ITL, UNC, AND TEXAS A&M UNIVERSITY – COOPERATION
New partner alliance of global companies and institutions – Golem, Intel, ITL and researchers Don Porter and Chia-Che Tsai (now faculty at UNC and Texas A&M University). As reported on the Golem official blog: Collaboration will be directed are working to deliver a production-grade solution for application portability, security, and data integrity – at this stage directed towards decentralized use-cases. Upon seeing the potential of the solution proposed as a result of the combined efforts of Golem and ITL, Intel and the original researchers initiated talks about collaboration and the so-called “unfork”. This collaboration materialized into the Graphene Workgroup under the combined leadership of Golem, Intel, ITL and the original creators of Graphene. GX is not easy to adapt for every application, and as it stands, it’s not exactly simple to integrate. We are developing Graphene as a solution for developers to adopt SGX more broadly, without a need to tweak their applications. SGX (Software Guard Extensions) is, out of the existing TEEs, the most mature one. This technology was developed by Intel. However, SGX faced various challenges. Graphene is a project that addresses such challenges when adapted to SGX. More detailed information on the website blog.golemproject.net. The news release partner STEX.
