Podling Teaclave Report - April 2021

April 9, 2021 · Mingshen Sun

# Teaclave

Teaclave is a universal secure computing platform, making computation on privacy-sensitive data safe and simple.

Teaclave has been incubating since 2019-08-20.

# Three most important unfinished issues to address before graduating:

  • Improve project structure and documentation
  • Grow the community (attracting more committers, contributors, users)
  • Publish Apache releases (resolving logistics on Apache release)

# Are there any issues that the IPMC or ASF Board need to be aware of?


# How has the community developed since the last report?

Since the last report, we have started monthly virtual meetups for three times. Many people from the community share their usage experience of Teaclave. Also, we invited some contributors to talk about some technical details of the design and implementation. For each meetup, we have minutes write-up published on the Teaclave blog.

In addition, we have one more project (Crust Network) powered by Teaclave joined in our "Powered By" page on the Teaclave homepage.

# How has the project developed since the last report?

During this period, we also accepted the Rust OP-TEE TrustZone SDK project to Teaclave as a sub-project, named as Teaclave TrustZone SDK. Similar to Teaclave SGX SDK, Teaclave TrustZone SDK will be the foundation of the Teaclave FaaS platform to support multiple trusted execution environments.

We published a project roadmap in 2021:

We also announce the 0.2.0 release. In 0.2.0, we focus on various components including built-in functions, SDKs in different languages, docker, command line interface, documents, etc.
