Executive Director June recap

It was great to meet so many of you at the Confidential Computing Summit in San Francisco – both at the CCC sponsored meet-up at a local speakeasy and at the conference itself. I would like in particular like to thank everyone who engaged with and supported the work we’re doing at the CCC – by coming to the booth, talking to us in person and, of course, attending and speaking sessions. As well as a great deal of discussion around use cases (with a particular focus on AI), many people were interested in getting involved in discussions around business models for remote attestation, one of several topics I brought up in my keynote session (regulator and standards engagement was another popular one).  If you’re interested in getting involved, please let me know!

Combined with a number of podcasts, webinars and panel discussions at various conferences, interest in and visibility of Confidential Computing really seems to be picking up. We’ve got a working group on repositioning the CCC’s messaging to ensure that we’re able to respond to industry and ecosystem interest: we’d love more involvement in this as well.

Exciting News for Start-ups!

The Confidential Computing Consortium (CCC) has launched a new membership tier tailored for start-ups, offering a complimentary first-year membership. This initiative aims to empower emerging companies by providing access to vital resources, collaborative opportunities, and industry insights. Eligible start-ups can connect with leaders, gain educational materials, and influence industry standards. This is a fantastic chance to be part of the future of secure computing.

Securing the Software Supply Chain

In the wake of SolarWinds and other high-profile supply chain attacks, Confidential Computing offers new ways to protect the integrity of the software we all rely on. 
Recently we heard from Chad Kimes of Github and Marcela Melara from Intel on securing the software supply chain. They shared their work on SLSA, in-toto, & CI/CD for secure, attestable builds. You can watch their tech talk here.
