In this session, we’ll introduce the Edgeless open-source stack for confidential computing: EGo, MarbleRun and EdgelessDB.

EGo is an open-source SDK for building confidential apps in Go. We'll present the architecture design of EGo and how you can easily build your own confidential apps.

MarbleRun is the control plane for confidential computing, designed to run on Kubernetes. Learn more about the key features and the challenges that arise when you deploy confidential workloads on Kubernetes.

Finally, we’ll give you an introduction of EdgelessDB and show you how it compares to conventional databases and explain the concept of a manifest which is central to EdgelessDB.

Moreover, we want to give you an outlook on what’s coming with the next releases.

Felix Schuster is an academic turned startup founder. After his PhD in computer security, he joined Microsoft Research to work four years on the foundations of Azure Confidential Computing, before co-founding Edgeless Systems. The startup’s vision is to build an open-source stack for cloud-native Confidential Computing. His 2015 paper on the “VC3” system is believed by some to have coined the term Confidential Computing.

Moritz Eckert leads cloud-related development at Edgeless Systems and is the primary maintainer of MarbleRun. Moritz is a seasoned engineer and has presented at top-tier conferences including Usenix Security Symposium, Conf42, and OC3 in the past. Alongside his professional work, Moritz is part of Shellphish, one of the highest-ranked competitive hacking groups in the world.
