What's a QE?

I don't see this acronym resolved anywhere in the whole patchset.

So I'm sure I'm missing something here: what controls which
enclave can open /dev/sgx/provision and thus pass the FD to
SGX_IOC_ENCLAVE_SET_ATTRIBUTE?

And in general, how does that whole flow look like: what calls
SGX_IOC_ENCLAVE_SET_ATTRIBUTE when?

Thx.
