The Taiwan Stock Exchange Corporation (TWSE) is a financial institution operating as a stock exchange that provides trading for 758 listed companies in Taiwan. Its primary business drivers include developing new financial products and boosting the number of services it offers. This paper highlights the systems, solutions, and approach Intel used in a joint proof of concept (PoC) with TWSE to address its business needs and increase the overall trust and security of its cloud infrastructure using Intel Trusted Execution Technology (Intel TXT), Cisco Unified Computing System* (UCS*) servers, and software solutions from HyTrust, McAfee, and VMware.
TWSE needed to build a more secure foundation for sensitive cloud workloads. It is using the components from these companies to establish trusted compute pools (TCP) providing the additional elements of security, visibility, and control needed to put more applications and workloads into its cloud infrastructure. From this initial proofof- concept deployment, TWSE expects many other business units to be able to more effectively use cloud infrastructures to increase business agility, reduce costs, and improve asset utilization without compromising security considerations.
