Azure confidential computing instances offer the opportunity to quickly protect any application from insider threats, leveraging Intel® Software Guard Extensions (SGX)-enabled CPUs and Anjuna Enterprise Enclaves software. With a single command, Anjuna automatically creates a secure enclave that isolates and encrypts all application resources in runtime, at rest, and on the network, to achieve the strongest end-to-end data protection available. No changes to the application code or SDKs required.
An attacker that gains control of more than 1/3 of validator nodes in a Tendermint blockchain can gain the ability to propose, pre-vote, pre-commit or commit illegitimate transactions. Ensuring the integrity and authenticity of each node is important.
Anjuna Enterprise Enclaves for Tendermint runs Tendermint nodes inside secure enclaves. This makes it virtually impossible for an attacker to take over a validator node. Because Anjuna integrates attestation into standard TLS authentication, Tendermint network nodes run with no source code modifications and can be easily added to existing Tendermint deployments to boost security.
The Anjuna Enterprise Enclave for Tendermint provides a pre-configured instance and step-by-step instructions that help you quickly get a fully Anjuna protected TenderMint node running in an enclave on an Azure confidential computing instance.
