Intel announced today Intel SGX Card, a new product to expand its SGX security feature to existing data center server infrastructure that wouldn’t have been able to benefit from it due to hardware architectural limitations.

Intel SGX stands for Software Guard eXtensions, a feature found in modern Intel CPUs that allows developers to isolate parts of applications inside secure “enclaves.”

These SGX enclaves have access to small sections of a CPU’s processing memory that are isolated at the hardware level from the rest of the main processor, and where applications can run operations that deal with sensitive details, such as encryption keys, passwords, user data, and more.
