Enclaves: Enabling Secure Collaboration over the Internet
 by Li Gong.


The rapid expansion of the Internet means that users increasingly want to interact with each other. Due to the openness and unsecure nature of the net, users often have to rely on firewalls to protect their connections. Fire walls, however, make real-time interaction and collaboration more difficult. Firewalls are also complicated to configure and expensive to install and maintain, and are inaccessible to small home offices and mobile users.

The Enclaves approach is to transform user machines into "enclaves," which are protected from outside interference and attacks. Using Enclaves, a group of collaborators can dynamically form a secure virtual subnet within which to conduct their joint business.

This paper describes the design and implementation of the Enclaves toolkit, and some applications we have built using the toolkit.
