Intel Software Guard Extensions (SGX) are a Trusted Execution Environment (TEE) technology that allow programs to protect execution process and data from other processes on the platform. We propose a method to combine SGX attestation with Transport Layer Security (TLS). Doing so will combine guarantees about the program, runtime environment, and machine identity into a normal TLS handshake. We implemented a basic server using SGX/TLS and provide performance details and lessons learned during development.
