Red Hat continually works to refine the security capabilities for the Red Hat Enterprise Linux operating system, and believes there are benefits to adding features to the proposed Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI) specification to prevent the use of unauthorized malware running on computers before the operating system boots.

Currently, Red Hat is working with a broad set of hardware and software industry partners to develop an approach that provides these types of security features while giving users the freedom to choose their operating systems.  We are currently working on these adaptations to the proposed UEFI specification and are encouraged by the increasing number of partners joining us in this initiative.

In collaboration with The Linux Foundation and Canonical, Red Hat published a white paper titled UEFI Secure Boot Impact on Linux. To download the white paper, please visit here.
