iExec V3.1 — iExec TEE Solution Upgraded Features & Worker Update
Today, we’re happy to announce that iExec V3.1 has been successfully deployed.
iExec is a decentralized marketplace for cloud computing resources. As part of the latest product release in May, iExec V3, iExec Workers (individual computing power providers) were able to join the network. Since then, we’ve had the first-ever machines in the public iExec worker pool, executing tasks and earning RLC tokens.
Today, we’re happy to announce that iExec V3.1 has been successfully deployed. This update includes a more efficient computing middleware, and a new feature in the iExec TEE (Trusted Execution Environment) Solution: the choice to compute using a TEE public worker pool (for individual workers with Intel® SGX machines).
The iExec TEE solution (with Intel® SGX) can now be run on a public worker pool
In October 2018, iExec released a full TEE (Trusted Execution Environment) solution, a first in the blockchain industry. The iExec TEE solution offers end-to-end encryption of all application and user data inside an Intel® SGX enclave, protecting it during off-chain computation. Previously, you could only carry out TEE computation on specific worker pools. iExec teamed up with collaborators IBM, Alibaba Cloud and TF Cloud to provide worker pools for TEE.
With iExec 3.1, such computations, where privacy and ownership of sensitive data need to be maintained, can now be performed by a public worker pool. A public worker pool is made up of individual ‘untrusted’ machines. With iExec, computations can be run on these untrusted machines, as long as the machines are enabled with Intel® SGX enclaves. The iExec TEE solution ensures the protection of all user and application data involved.
