New story! Using Trusted Boot on IBM OpenPOWER servers

  • IBM developerWorks : Linux (Posted by bob on Feb 26, 2017 12:26 PM EDT)
  • Groups: IBM, Linux; Story Type: News Story
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.
