The UEFI Forum recently hosted a new webinar as part of its educational webinar series titled “How to Create a Secure Development Lifecycle for Firmware.” Presenters discussed how, while firmware is software for your hardware, it operates in a different environment than most software, and thus vulnerabilities can have a greater impact. A secure development lifecycle can help combat these vulnerabilities and the associated challenges that follow an attack. You can watch the recorded presentation and view the webinar slides to learn more.

As you may have heard, the UEFI Forum recently released the UEFI Specification, Version 2.8, which reflects many new and useful technology changes in the platform firmware including added support for REpresentational State Transfer (REST). REST is not an official standard, but rather an architectural style of networked systems consisting of clients and servers, and it defines a set of constraints to be used for creating Web services. RESTful Web services provide interoperability between computer systems on the internet.
