Using Trusted Boot on IBM OpenPOWER servers

Sunday 26th of February 2017 04:26:04 PM
IBM OpenPOWER servers provide a firmware level security feature known as Trusted Boot. Trusted Boot helps defend against a boot code cyberattack by helping to verify that your server is running only authorized firmware. Integrity of your firmware is vital to the security of your system. Trusted Boot works by taking measurements of the executable boot code as the server boots and recording these measurements to a dedicated hardware security module known as the Trusted Platform Module (TPM). Together with a process known as remote attestation, you can use the data in the TPM to verify the integrity of your server's boot code.
