We go through the current state of the Intel SGX support in the Linux kernel and userland. The topics covered include the kernel interface and its features, and available confidential computing run-times supporting SGX. Since getting into the mainline kernel late 2020, the SGX software ecosystem has started to get mature enough for production, and is the only cloud-scale confidential computing technology fully in the mainline kernel so far.
