Xataka Article: RISC-V Wants To Be The Safest (Open Source Or Not) Processor In The World, And The Secret Will Be In Its Hardware Enclave

By December 14, 2018May 12th, 2021No Comments

The RISC-V ISA has been trying to provide an open source alternative to Intel and AMD processors based on the x86 / x86-64 architectureIn addition to being open source and development free of royalties, its developers want to make these chips the safest microprocessors in the world.
To do this, they are working in an open source hardware enclave. This type of component has become famous in Apple chips that keep our fingerprints or our face in its “Secure Enclave.” Intel’s chips have hardware extensions, but none of those platforms can be audited or improved externally. That is precisely what RISC-V offers: an open source implementation that can be accessed and studied freely and openly. This will allow everyone the opportunity to contribute to making it safer.
