LVC21F-118 Firmware Standards and Security

Session Abstract

Level: Intermediate  The Arm SystemReady certification program defines standards for hardware and firmware to enable operating systems to just work. A new specification, the Base Boot Security Requirements (BBSR) specification, extends standardization of firmware interfaces to security. BBSR defines standards for UEFI Secure Boot, firmware update via capsules, and TPMs to enable operating systems to work with them seamlessly. This session presents an overview of BBSR, introduces compliance tests being developed, and describes how compliance to BBSR will relate to the Platform Security Architecture (PSA).
