Subject[PATCH v38 02/24] x86/cpufeatures: x86/msr: Add Intel SGX Launch Control hardware bits
From: Sean Christopherson <>

Add X86_FEATURE_SGX_LC, which informs whether or not the CPU supports SGX
Launch Control.

Add MSR_IA32_SGXLEPUBKEYHASH{0, 1, 2, 3}, which when combined contain a
SHA256 hash of a 3072-bit RSA public key. SGX backed software packages, so
called enclaves, are always signed. All enclaves signed with the public key
are unconditionally allowed to initialize. [1]

Add FEAT_CTL_SGX_LC_ENABLED, which informs whether the aformentioned MSRs
are writable or not. If the bit is off, the public key MSRs are read-only
for the OS.

If the MSRs are read-only, the platform must provide a launch enclave (LE).
LE can create cryptographic tokens for other enclaves that they can pass
together with their signature to the ENCLS(EINIT) opcode, which is used
to initialize enclaves.

Linux is unlikely to support the locked configuration because it takes away
the control of the launch decisions from the kernel.
