TitleTEE-Assisted Crypto Solutions

Presenter:Dr. Guomin Yang

Date:Monday, January 15, 2024, 10:30-11:30 a.m

Location:Tencent Conference (ID: 572-285-241)


A Trusted Execution Environment (TEE) allows confidential computation to be performed on an untrusted host while ensuring code and data confidentiality and integrity. It enables a new paradigm to perform more scalable secure computation than pure cryptography-based approaches. In this talk, we will provide an overview on TEE-based secure computation frameworks and protocols, their underlining trust models, as well as security guarantees. We will also discuss how to build other TEE-assisted crypto systems which allow crypto and TEE to complement each other in realizing practical security solutions.
