Intel® SecL-DC News Update: 1.6 GA Release 12/22/19
- Allows the Verification Service to sign Flavors and verify the signature at attestation time to maintain the integrity of the Flavors.
- Allows image owners for virtual machines or Docker containers to encrypt the source images of their workloads. Encryption keys remain under the image owner's control, and are released to specific servers, sealed to that server's TPM, upon a successful integrity attestation with attributes that meet policy requirements determined by teh workload image owner. Because the image decryption key is sealed to the TPM of the host that was attested, this means that only a server that meets the requirements of the image owner as proven by an attestation report can successfully access the image.
- Adds the new Workload Service (WLS)
- The Workload Service manages mapping image IDs (as they exist in image storage, ie OpenStack Glance) to key IDs
- Adds the new Workload Agent (WLA)
- Manages the compute node/worker node operation, intercepting attempted launch of encrypted workloads, makes requests for keys, and manages crypto volumes for accessed images
- Adds the new Key Broker Service (KBS)
- Acts as the policy manager for handling key requests. Verifies that received attestation reprots are signed by a known Verification Service and that the attestation attributes match policy requirements.
- Adds the new Workload Policy Manager (WPM)
- Application that encrypts a new workload image
