Using Secure Boot for the powers of good

A session at Open Source Bridge 2013

Wednesday 19th June, 2013

1:30pm to 2:15pm (PST)

UEFI Secure Boot is a specification describing a mechanism for configuring computers to refuse to boot any OS that hasn't been signed with a trusted key. Most major Linux distributions have now adopted solutions for handling it, and now people are beginning to consider how we can take advantage of it. This presentation will provide a brief introduction to UEFI Secure Boot and the approaches the free software community have taken to dealing with it, but will focus on how we can use it to gain genuine security benefits and improve confidence in cloud computing.
