User's Guide: Create Datasets

Disclaimer: The Fortanix CCM Datasets feature will only be enabled for Customers with an "Enterprise" license.

Introduction

A dataset contains information on how to securely retrieve remote data.

This includes the following:

  • A location such as a URL to an external storage service.
  • Credentials such as username, password, auth-token, and so on, which are stored securely in a KMS (currently this is Fortanix Self-Defending KMS).
NOTE
  • A Credential is a fully user-provided object, for example: this can be a JSON string that contains the query param of the S3 pre-signed URL and the decryption key.
  • Credentials can be rotated through updates to datasets, all approved enclaves are allowed to refresh and get the latest credentials.

You can leverage these objects to provide data to enclaves securely.

Fortanix CCM’s EDP and EnclaveOS products can retrieve datasets and their credentials when run in an approved Workflow. For more details about workflows, refer to User's Guide: Workflows.
