Is there any virtualization solution that comes signed for use with Secure Boot?


Would rather keep Secure Boot enabled on a certain system but then the kernel you build with vmware and debian does not boot. Mokutil seems to have no effect, as if keys you try to add to the MOK list are not added. Is there any virtualization solution (kernel with hypervisor) that comes signed for Secure Boot and is not Microsoft?

Any Linux kernel should provide you with virtualization via KVM, you wouldn't need to run VmWare or VirtualBox.

Look up the package libvirt, that should get you started. (KVM comes with all stock kernels)

Fedora and Ubuntu ought to be signed even after you install a VM from their package manager I'd think.
I assume you mean some host OS running a vm program and not any client sort of secure boot issue.

It's very simple in the end. Eg with SecureBoot-signed ubuntu derivative peppermintos you just install aqemu and away you go. AntiX is also SecureBoot-signed but it needs a little tweaking. Could you please check out this thread.
