Canonical Ubuntu 22.04 LTS released, supports confidential computing

UK-based software company Canonical recently announced the launch of Ubuntu 22.04 LTS with updated features on cloud security, real-time kernel for industrial applications, and enterprise compliance.

Confidential computing, which uses protected processor enclaves in the cloud to protect sensitive data, is a key innovation which they introduced with this latest release. Ubuntu is the only Linux distribution supporting Microsoft Azure Confidential VMs. The last LTS update was released with Ubuntu 20.4 in April 2020.

“Our mission is to be a secure, reliable and consistent open-source platform – everywhere,” said Canonical CEO Mark Shuttleworth, “Ubuntu 22.04 LTS unlocks innovation for industries with demanding infrastructure security requirements, such as telecommunications and industrial automation, underpinning their digital transformation.”

Ubuntu 22.04 also provides desktop support for Raspberry Pi 4, the first LTS release to have this capability.
