    A new Confidential Computing Consortium was announced on Wednesday by the Linux Foundation to boost the security of processed data. Learn more in an awesome Redmond Magazine article:

    The consortium is focused on the security of data used by service providers, as well as data processed in local datacenters or "edge computing." Typically that data gets encrypted at rest and in transit by service providers, but it typically does not get encrypted when it's in use. The Confidential Computing Consortium plans to focus on this latter security issue when data get processed in memory, which is considered the "most challenging" security step to address.

    The consortium's efforts will foster an open trusted solution for the problem, promised Jim Zemlin, the Linux Foundation's executive director.
