LinuxBoot for Servers: Enter Open Source, Goodbye Proprietary UEFI

Recommended Posts

securitybreach

LinuxBoot is an Open Source alternative to Proprietary UEFI firmware. It was released last year and is now being increasingly preferred by leading hardware manufacturers as default firmware. Last year, LinuxBoot was warmly welcomedinto the Open Source family by The Linux Foundation.

 

This project was an initiative by Ron Minnich, author of LinuxBIOS and lead of coreboot at Google, in January 2017.

 

Google, Facebook, Horizon Computing Solutions, and Two Sigma collaborated together to develop the LinuxBoot project (formerly called NERF) for server machines based on Linux.

 

Its openness allows Server users to easily customize their own boot scripts, fix issues, build their own runtimes and reflash their firmware with their own keys. They do not need to wait for vendor updates.

Hello,

 

There is Libreboot and Coreboot, but those seem mainly geared towards laptops.
