Microsoft has joined other industry partners like Google and Intel to create the Confidential Computing Consortium, a new organisation that will be hosted at The Linux Foundation.
The consortium will include other founding members Alibaba, ARM, Baidu, IBM, Intel, Red Hat, Swisscom and Tencent.
In this organisation, the industry can come together to collaborate on open source technology and frameworks to support new confidential computing scenarios.
“The Confidential Computing Consortium will be dedicated to defining and accelerating the adoption of confidential computing,” Mark Russinovich, CTO, Microsoft Azure, wrote in a blog post on Wednesday.
Confidential computing technologies offer the opportunity for organisations to collaborate on their data sets without giving access to that data, to gain shared insights and to innovate for the common good.
As computing moves from on-premises to the public cloud and the edge, protecting data becomes more complex.
“There are three types of possible data exposure to protect against. One is data at rest and another data in transit. While there’s always room to improve and innovate, the industry has built technologies and standards to address these scenarios.
“The third possible exposure — or as I like to think of it, the critical ‘third leg of the stool’ — is data in use. Protecting data while in use is called confidential computing,” Russinovich explained. (IANS)
According to the blockchain security and data analytics Peckshield, the various tokens stolen in the attack are worth about $120 million, reports The Verge. According to reports, someone inserted a malicious script in the user interface (UI) of their website. Badger has retained data forensics experts Chainalysis to explore the full scale of the incident and authorities in both the US and Canada have been informed. "Badger is cooperating fully with external investigations as well as proceeding with its own," it said. DeFi is a collective term for financial products and services that are open, decentralised and accessible to anyone. DeFi products open up financial services to anyone with an internet connection and they are largely owned and maintained by their users. While the attack didn't reveal specific flaws within Blockchain tech itself, it managed to exploit the older "web 2.0" technology that most users need to use to perform transactions, according to reports.

Dr Rakesh Mishra at the CCMB said on Friday that the consortium is continuously monitoring the situation in all the four cities and has upscaled its efforts to sequence as many samples as possible Apart from the CCMB and the NCBS, the consortium includes CSIR-Institute of Genomics and Integrative Biology - IGIB in New Delhi and the Pune Knowledge Cluster, Indian Institute of Science Education and Research (IISER), Pune, and CSIR-National Chemical Laboratory in Pune.
They hope this will aid in a rapid response to contain the spread of variants of concern. Prof Satyajit Mayor from the NCBS conveyed the information to local and national authorities, and the Indian government released a statement on December 2, all within four days of receiving the samples. Both SARS-CoV-2 genomes have also been uploaded to the global repository for SARS-CoV-2 sequences, GISAID, so that they can be publicly available to the scientific community, the NCBS said.
