In response to the requirements for remote verification of the trustworthiness of enterprise organizations in cloud, edge, and on-site environments, Intel proposed a new service code-named Project Amber. It will provide confidential computing, safe and responsible artificial intelligence computing mode, and quantum-resistant cryptography technology that avoids traditional encryption methods that are easily cracked by quantum computers.
“As organizations continue to capitalize on the value of the cloud, security has never been more top of mind. Trust goes hand in hand with security, and it is what our customers expect and require when delivering on Intel technology,” said Greg Lavender, chief technology officer, senior vice president and general manager of the Software and Advanced Technology Group at Intel. “With the introduction of Project Amber, Intel is taking confidential computing to the next level in our commitment to a zero-trust approach to attestation and the verification of compute assets at the network, edge and in the cloud.”
Project Amber provides organizations with remote verification of trustworthiness for computing assets in the cloud, edge, and on-premises environments, and supports public, private, or hybrid cloud, and edge-side confidential computing workload environments.
At the same time, this service will operate independently from the infrastructure provider hosting confidential computing workloads, and through third-party intervention and certification, it will help provide objectivity and independence and strengthen the security of confidential computing for users.
Intel plans to launch the Project Amber customer first demonstration program in the second half of this year and is expected to be officially launched in the first half of 2023.
