Introduction to Veraison

Abstract

Attestation is a key technology for Confidential Computing. An Attestation report requires verification to be useful to help establish trustworthiness. The process of verification can be complicated, requiring knowledge of token formats and access to a source of reference data that may only be available from a manufacturing supply chain. To address some of these challenges, the OSS Project Veraison (VERificAtIon of atteStatiON) will build software components that can be used to create Attestation Verification services. This webinar discusses the scope of the project and examines how the components can be targeted for different ecosystems.
