Confidential Virtual Machine support for Azure Virtual Desktop now in Public Preview - Microsoft Community Hub

Azure Daily 2022

We’re announcing that Azure Virtual Desktop has public preview support for Azure Confidential Virtual Machines. Confidential Virtual Machines increase data privacy and security by protecting data in use. The Azure DCasv5 and ECasv5 confidential VM series provide a hardware-based Trusted Execution Environment (TEE) that features AMD SEV-SNP security capabilities, which harden guest protections to deny the hypervisor and other host management code access to VM memory and state, and that is designed to protect against operator access and encrypts data in use.
