In 2019, AMD introduced SEV-SNP (Secure Nested Paging), the latest generation of AMD VM isolation technology designed for confidential computing. Now that SEV-SNP hardware is commercially available, AMD is focusing on upstream enablement of the various new security capabilities provided by this technology, including memory integrity protection, new attestation models, interrupt security, and more. In this talk, we will provide a brief overview of these new capabilities and the status of upstream enablement work in the Linux kernel, QEMU, and related projects. We’ll also discuss planned future areas of development and how anyone interested can get involved.
