    Phoronix: Intel SGX Enclaves Were Prone To Crashes On Linux Under Heavy Memory Pressure

    Intel's Software Guard Extensions (SGX) as security-related extensions to their processors that allow for protected memory enclaves has had a rather bouncy journey. Intel continues supporting SGX on their latest Xeon processors but on the client side have been deprecated since 11th Gen Core.

It also turns out under Linux until now was also open to crashing under memory pressure...

          Do you people enable SGX in the bios, disable it or leave to software requests?
          Thanks
