Protect your sensitive data with the first open-source database designed for confidential computing

Make your database confidential with EdgelessDB, a MySQL-compatible database for confidential computing. It runs entirely inside runtime-encrypted Intel SGX enclaves. In comparison to other databases, EdgelessDB ensures that all data is always encrypted—in memory as well as on disk.

Please follow the Quickstart guide to correctly set up your EdgelessDB instance.

Why EdgelessDB?

There are two main reasons to use EdgelessDB. First, it can greatly increase data security. For example, this may allow you to move more data to the cloud. Second, EdgelessDB's manifest and verification feature enables exciting new applications like confidential analytics of customer data or trustworthy pooling of data between companies.

Under the hood

Architecturally, EdgelessDB is based on MariaDB. As storage engine, it uses an enhanced version of RocksDB. The file encryption of EdgelessDB's storage engine is designed and built for the enclave and its very strong attacker model. In this context,its storage engine provides confidentiality, integrity, freshness, auditability, and recoverability for data. Other databases, even when running inside enclaves using general-purpose frameworks, do not have these security properties.


"Trusted execution environments play a crucial role in implementing future-proof data strategies. In our collaboration with Edgeless Systems, their versatile tools turned out to be the missing link between confidential computing and scalable infrastructure."

Sven Trieflinger, Senior Project Manager at Bosch
