Good news—the UEFI Spring 2016 Plugfest ended on April 1, (no fooling!) and the materials are now available on-line for anyone not able to attend.
All UEFI Forum presentations can be found at the following link:
I’ve copied the UEFI Spring 2016 Plugfest section below, with my comments:
UEFI Spring Plugfest: March 29, 2016
- UEFI Forum Update - Dong Wei (HPE)
- A general overview of goings-on in the world of UEFI, mainly what’s new in the organization and in the certification tests.
- UEFI Forum ARM Update - Mitch Ishihara (ARM)
- The title says it all: updates to UEFI and ACPI that improve the ARM experience.
- Improving Platform Security with UEFI Secure Boot and UEFI Variables - David Chen (Insyde Software)
- Interesting stuff regarding a new model for using Secure Boot. Difficult to follow without the live presentation.
- The TPM 2.0 specs are here, now what? - Dick Wilkins (Phoenix Technologies)
- Interesting summary of TPM 2.0 capabilities versus TPM 1.2, and also the state of support (or lack thereof) in UEFI and EDKII.
- Standardized Firmware for ARMv8 based Volume Servers - Jonathan Zhang (Cavium Inc.) and Robert Hsu (AMI)
- This link was broken when I tried it—hopefully someone at the UEFI Forum got my note and can fix this.
- Microsoft Update for Windows Security - Jackie Chang, Tony Lin (Microsoft Corporation)
- New Win10 security features: Device Guard, Credential Guard, new Secure Boot model
- UEFI Port to RISC-V Processor Architecture - Abner Chang (HPE)
- Discussion of the latest generation of RISC processor architecture, RISC-V. Difficult to follow without the live presentation.
- Tianocore 2016 Updates - Tony Mangefeste (Intel)
- Really neat presentation of what’s going on with Tianocore, EDKII, Github, build tools, and even social media presence.
