When you run a workload as a VM, container or in a serverless environment, that workload is vulnerable to interference by any person or software with hypervisor, root or kernel access. Enarx, a new open source project, aims to make it simple to deploy workloads to a variety of trusted execution environments (TEEs) in the public cloud, on your premises or elsewhere, and to ensure that your application workload is as secure as possible.
When you run your workloads in the cloud, there are no technical barriers to prevent the cloud providers–or their employees–from looking into your workloads, peeking into the data, or even changing the running process. That’s because when you run a workload as a VM, container or serverless, the way that these are implemented means that a person or software entity with sufficient access can interfere with any process running on that machine.

When we look to the future of applications and platforms, we need to keep an eye on the solutions of the past.
That is one of the main theses of Stephanos Bacon, Sr. Director of Portfolio Strategy at Red Hat, in this video from Red Hat Summit 2018, “Clouds Today, Serverless Tomorrow: Your Future Apps and Platforms”:
In order to understand the present situation around the many choices of languages and platforms a developer faces, Stephanos briefly walks through a 25 year year journey of enterprise software development. This journey is one of a “continuous-though-forward-moving cycle”.
This cycle looks back at itself to learn and adapt from the past while moving forward in response to changing market imperatives. While we may need new solutions, we also reach back in time to find seemingly old solutions that address new classes of problems.
