SUSE is taking a step toward providing additional security and verification to their SUSE Linux Enterprise distribution. The company announced this week their plan to support an entire range of "confidential computing". The Register reports: "SUSE's latest release of SUSE Linux Enterprise 15 Service Pack 5 (SLE 15 SP5) has a focus on security, claiming it as the first distro to offer full support for confidential computing to protect data." Confidential computing refers to using hardware features to verify and restrict the software running on a platform. "Confidential computing relies on hardware-based security mechanisms in the processor to provide this protection, so enterprises hoping to take advantage of this will need to ensure their servers have the necessary support, such as AMD's Secure Encrypted Virtualization-Secure Nested Paging (SEV-SNP) and Intel's Trust Domain Extensions (TDX)."
