As I have the 7th gen Intel CPU (i7-7700HQ) and in UEFI BIOS there is a possibility to Enable Intel® SGX™ (Software Guard Extensions™), I would like to do so.
In order to do that, I am unsure, if I really need to, but let's suppose I do have to have the following libraries compiled, mentioned in an Intel article:
On GitHub, I may have found the project that would do just that:
I've installed all of the mentioned prerequisites already.
The compilation directly with
make went well.
But, since I do not understand this topic as well as I would like, I hesitate if and how to install it.
So, to the question: I seek guidance on enabling / installing Intel® SGX™ on my Linux system, which is based on Ubuntu 18.04 LTS.
Any and all information welcome. You can also include if the SGX would bring any benefits to me.
I am sure this is impossible to evaluate without knowing what applications I use.
These I use on daily basis:
Chrome for all browsing, including Flash games
Thunderbird for my company emails
Code for scripting
Steam games for fun
VirtualBox for BSD systems, not really often using those
