    The Linux Foundation 1024x682

    A new data-security group founded by the Linux Foundation — and a new school of thought on data protection — has won new adherents, including AMD, Nvidia and Accenture. The expansion could provide facial recognition a new layer of security - potentially mollifying those who oppose the biometric technology.

    Monday, the Confidential Computing Consortium said its newest members are Anjuna, Anqlave, Cosmian, iExec, IoTeX, R3 and the three information technology giants mentioned above.

    The consortium is a Linux Foundation project pushing an equally recent proposal designed to protect data in use.
