When Not to Use Sgx


When not to use sgx

sgx secures the server, provided your client is already under your control.

Some times, people tell me that they want to use sgx on their local computer to prevent rogue admins to see their secrets. As long as they made request from the same computer, this does not make any sense. No matter how secure the sgx enclave is, if the client making the request is under the control of the rogue admin, it can ask anything it wants to the server.
