Secure Enclave is a hardware security feature from Apple in which secure data, such as a user's private key, is stored away from direct access by the processor to minimize the risk of it being compromised or hacked by a cyberattack.[1]

Usage[]

Secure Enclave is used to securely store biometric data used by Face ID and Touch ID.[2][3] T-series chips that manage Secure Enclave are operated by bridgeOS.[4] Secure enclave also has a separate, dedicated boot ROM containing firmware called sepOS.[5][6]

The use of Secure Enclave by iPhones, iPads, and Macs is comparable to new TPM requirements being adopted by Microsoft in 2021 for Windows 11.[7]
