Determining MrEnclave

An enclave is identified by a hash value which is called MrEnclave. This has is determined by content of the pages of an enclave and the access rights. In particular, the means that some of the SCONE environment variables like SCONE_HEAP and SCONE_ALLOW_DLOPEN will affect MrEnclave.

To determine MrEnclave, we provide a simple way to determine MrEnclave on the developer site via environment variable SCONE_HASH=1.

Example: MrEnclave of Python

Let us determine MrEnclave of our python interpreter. We start the container and then set environment variable SCONE_HASH=1 to ask SCONE to print MrEnclave and then terminate and SCONE_ALPINE=1 to ensure that the application is indeed started with SCONE.

Note

When setting SCONE_HASH=1 the program is not executed - only MrEnclave is printed on stdout.**

> docker run -it  sconecuratedimages/apps:python-2.7-alpine3.6 sh
$ SCONE_HASH=1 SCONE_ALPINE=1 /usr/local/bin/python
5430b3c0ab0e8a24ea4481e6022704cdbbcff68f6457eb0cdeaecfd734fec541

Now, let us change the heap size via environment variable SCONE_HEAP by asking for a 2GB heap:

$ SCONE_HEAP=2G SCONE_HASH=1 SCONE_ALPINE=1 /usr/local/bin/python
aa25d6e1863819fca72f4f3315131ba4a438d1e1643c030190ca665215912465

By default, SCONE does not permit to load dynamic libraries after startup. By setting SCONE_ALLOW_DLOPEN=1, we permit to load dynamic libraries during runtime. This changes MrEnclave:

$ SCONE_ALLOW_DLOPEN=1 SCONE_HEAP=2G SCONE_HASH=1 SCONE_ALPINE=1 /usr/local/bin/python

Using debug output

As an alternative to SCONE_HASH=1 is to print MrEnclave via debug messages by setting SCONE_VERSION=1:

$ SCONE_ALLOW_DLOPEN=1 SCONE_HEAP=2G SCONE_VERSION=1 SCONE_ALPINE=1 /usr/local/bin/python
export SCONE_QUEUES=4
export SCONE_SLOTS=256
export SCONE_SIGPIPE=0
export SCONE_MMAP32BIT=0
export SCONE_SSPINS=100
export SCONE_SSLEEP=4000
export SCONE_KERNEL=0
export SCONE_HEAP=2147483648
export SCONE_STACK=81920
export SCONE_CONFIG=/etc/sgx-musl.conf
export SCONE_MODE=sim
export SCONE_SGXBOUNDS=no
export SCONE_VARYS=no
export SCONE_ALLOW_DLOPEN=yes (protected)
export SCONE_MPROTECT=no
