LXer: Linux Foundation's Secure Boot bootloader now available

Published at LXer:

On behalf of the Linux Foundation, kernel developer James Bottomley has released a Microsoft-signed mini bootloader whose signature is trusted by typical Windows 8 PCs and which allows such PCs to be started when Secure Boot is active. Commenting on the release, Matthew Garrett, the main developer of the Shim Secure Boot bootloader that has been available for some time, announced that he intends to integrate some of the features of the Linux Foundation's mini bootloader into Shim as well.
