Following Tencent and Alibaba, the Crypto.com chain received a commercial license for Intel® SGX

The Crypto.com chain is licensed to use Intel® SGX to protect critical software and protect against hardware-based attacks.

Payment and Blockchain Asset Platform Crypto.com today announced that the Crypto.com chain, the groundbreaking blockchain asset mobile payment public chain, has acquired a commercial license from Intel® for use in a trusted execution environment (TEE) Use Intel® SGX (Software Guard Extensions) to build a high-performance, secure, privacy-protected network.

The nodes on the Crypto.com chain will operate in a securely specified address space (enclave) within the TEE (eg Intel® SGX). By using hardware-encrypted storage, these CPU instruction sets isolate code running within the specified address space from the host operating system. As a result, the TEE ensures that even the node operator cannot see the private data used by the specified address space code.

The use of TEE can bring multiple benefits to the Crypto.com chain:

Local and remote authentication : The Crypto.com chain node or a third party can verify that the code to be docked is the officially recognized Crypto.com chain code;

· Transaction data confidentiality : In theory, all transaction data can be sent to any network node, but TEE can ensure that people and people (including node operators) can not peep into the original form of data;

"virtual" hardware wallet : Community nodes can use software such as Ledger Trustlet to protect the private key;

· Payment protocol optimization : TEE is receiving increasing attention in the research field of blockchain system, because it can achieve high transaction throughput and low latency with one arrow and two sculptures;

Verification of external data: TEE can be used to verify the authenticity of external data, such as data from oracle or other blockchain networks.

Kris Marszalek, co-founder and CEO of Crypto.com commented: “Security is critical to the promotion of blockchain assets and plays a fundamental role. We are honored to be recognized by Intel and will continue to work hard to bring Crypto.com Create a strong and secure network."
