A Tour Beyond BIOS into UEFI Secure Boot at the download location http://sourceforge.net/projects/edk2/files/General%20Documentation/A_Tour_Beyond_BIOS_into_UEFI_Secure_Boot_White_Paper.pdf/download was recently posted. My co-author Lee Rosenbaum and I provide a integrity model for an extensible pre-OS that motivates UEFI Secure Boot
along with a review of the implementation at tianocore.org. I provide an overview of some of the material in the paper at the toorcamp talk next Thursday near Neah Bay.
Roy Hopkins of Intel/McAfee and I https://intel.activeevents.com/sf12/scheduler/speakers.do will be presenting Intel and McAfee: Hardening and Harnessing the Secure Platform on Tuesday, September 11, at the Intel Developer Forum in San Francisco, CA. The topics will include:
-UEFI and Platform Initialization (PI) security overview
-Hardening the platform and development assurance practices
-Introducing McAfee* Endpoint Encryption
-Value proposition of a secured preboot
-Maintain the chain of trust.
I look forward to meeting people in SF next month.
