Summary : Theres been a lot buzz lately about UEFI Secure Booting, and the ability of hardware and software manufacturers to lock out third-party loaders (and rootkits). Even the NSA has been advocating the adoption of measured boot and hardware-based integrity checks. But what does this trend mean to the open source and hacker communities? In this talk Ill give a demo of measured boot, show the data thats collected, and discuss the weaknesses of the system.
