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).
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.
