Presentation delivered at LinuxCon China 2016
UEFI HTTP/HTTPS Boot is a new feature of UEFI 2.5+. In the meantime, this feature is not yet implemented in any Linux bootloader. This Birds of a Feather session will give an introduction to UEFI HTTP/HTTPS Boot, and share a proof-of-concept implementation based on grub2 that works on both the emulator (QEMU/OVMF) and HPE ProLiant Gen10 servers.
For HTTPS, the experience and comparison will be shared between the purely software-based and UEFI-based implementations in the aspects of ease of implementation, security strength, and limitation.
