Practical Approaches to Protecting Signing Keys on UEFI-based Systems

Protecting signing keys used in the secure boot infrastructure is a new challenge for OEMs and ODMs designing and building UEFI based computing platforms. Protection of these keys is critical. If signing keys are compromised, control of critical pieces of a company’s product line can be lost. A company that does not have security experts and a large security budget may think protection of signing keys is not feasible. This paper provides some practical advice on how to address this issue with limited resources.

Creating an Embedded Product with Support for UEFI Secure Boot

Embedded system designers want to control what software runs on their system. This enhances security of a system, and makes it much more difficult for unauthorized software to run during the boot of a system. However, to ship a system with the secure boot feature enabled, fundamental changes need to be made to the way the system is designed, manufactured, deployed, and maintained. Many companies have used signing services for operating system drivers, but supporting the secure boot infrastructure on a product line is a much more difficult proposition. This paper discusses aspects of this problem and reviews resources that can help solve it. The focus is on embedded systems, but the principles are applicable to any computer system.
