SCONE in a nutshell

Overview of SCONE's unique features

  • transparent encryption icon



    SCONE can transparently encrypt files and network traffic and in this way, it protects data from unauthorized access via the operating system, the hypervisor or any software.

  • transparent attestation


    attestation of programs

    SCONE transparently attests programs to ensure that only the correct, unmodified programs are executing in a genuine SGX enclave. This also prevents malware to attach to programs.

  • curated images icon



    SCONE supports a set of curated images to simplify the task of application developer. For most of the standard services, we will provide a SCONE image that runs inside of an SGX enclave. The application developer can customize the image via a Docker compose / stack file. We provide some examples in our SCONE tutorial.

  • Secure

    compose files

    SCONE supports secure compose files to protect secrets that are visible in Docker compose and stack files as well as Kubernetes metadata files.

  • secure enclaves

    Simplifying the use

    of secure enclaves

    SCONE executes programs inside secure enclaves - without requiring source code changes. We recommend to recompile applications but we support executing native Alpine applications inside containers. In this way, we are preventing even attackers with root access from stealing secrets from these programs.

  • transparent configuration

    Transparent configuration

    with secrets

    SCONE helps to configure programs with secrets that can neither be read nor modified by attackers - even if they would have already taken control of the operating system and/or the hypervisor. This is transparent to the application, i.e., does not require any source code changes.

  • application-oriented security



    Ensure application security even in untrusted environments.

  • cross-compiler-support



    SCONE support cross-compilers for C, C++, Rust, Go and an interpreter for Python.
