Confidential VMs in the cloud

Confidential instance types are the newest addition to public clouds like Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud Platform (GCP) but what does "confidential" really mean? The session will focus on which additional security guarantees are provided and what's required from Linux based operating systems to make use of these guarantees. Using Azure Confidential VMs as an example, I'll focus on boot process, guest image requirements, Unified Kernel Images (UKIs), full disk encryption with vTPMs and PCR measurements. A brief overview of the current state of these technologies in Fedora and RHEL distributions can also be expected.
