TaLoS: Secure and Transparent TLS Termination inside SGX Enclaves

Research output: Preprint/documentation/report › Working paper



We introduce TaLoS1, a drop-in replacement for existing transport
layer security (TLS) libraries that protects itself from a malicious
environment by running inside an Intel SGX trusted execution en-
vironment. By minimising the amount of enclave transitions and
reducing the overhead of the remaining enclave transitions, TaLoS
imposes an overhead of no more than 31% in our evaluation with
the Apache web server and the Squid proxy.
