We present Obscuro, a decentralised Ethereum Layer 2 Rollup protocol designed to achieve
data confidentiality and prevent Maximal Extractable Value (MEV) by leveraging hardware
based Trusted Execution Environments (TEE).
The design of Obscuro ensures that hardware manufacturers do not have to be trusted for
the safety of the ledger. If one manufacturer turns malicious or there is a breach in the TEE
technology, the protocol falls back to the behavior of a public blockchain that preserves
the ledger’s integrity but makes the transactions public. This situation will lead to a partial
Iiveness failure because the withdrawal function will be suspended.
The design also focuses on preserving privacy for the limited period when it matters most,
which removes the need for a privacy technique that is robust against all adversaries in
Obscuro sits in what we believe is a sweet spot between the existing ollup-basedL2
offerings Optimistic and ZK Rollups. The use of confidential computing techniques coupled
with economic incentives allows Obscuro to retain the performance and programming
model simplicity of Optimistic rollups, and on top of that attain confidentiality, short
withdrawal periods, and address MEV.
