We are pleased to announce the upcoming UEFI Summit is planned for the week of April 4th. The event will take place both in-person and virtually from the Embassy Suites by Hilton in Hillsboro, Oregon. In a shift from previous testing heavy Plugfest events, this event will focus primarily on educational/technical sessions, working group meetings and networking.

More information, including how to register, will be made available in 2022.


Webinars – UEFI BrightTALK Channel

Due to COVID-19 travel restrictions and health concerns, the Spring 2020 UEFI Plugfest was canceled. In place of the Spring Plugfest, the UEFI Virtual Plugfest will now take place online through a series of themed educational webinars presented by UEFI Forum members. The webinars will be free and open to the public. Given the success of these webinars, we will be continuing this program into 2021.

Recordings of the webinars will be available after the presentations have concluded. If you register now but are unable to attend the live presentation, you can view the presentation recording on the UEFI Forum YouTube channel after the webinar has concluded.


Upcoming Webinars:

Traceable Firmware Bill of Materials Overview

Wednesday, December 8, 2021

Webinar Airing from 8:00 – 9:00 am PT

Live WebEx Q&A Airing Immediately Following the Webinar

Today, firmware attacks are on the rise. A platform may have different firmware coming from multiple vendors. It is important to know the original source of these firmware components. Trusted Computer Group (TCG) published a set of specifications on reference integrity manifest (RIM) information models and firmware integrity measurement (FIM) to enable compliance with NIST SP 800-155 BIOS Integrity Measurements.

In this presentation, the speakers will introduce the work to measure firmware at the component level and later use that as evidence for a traceable firmware Bill of Materials (BOM) for verification. This webinar will introduce two examples. The first example is how we provide Intel firmware support package (FSP) component measurement to help trace the Intel Firmware Support Package (FSP) binary. The second example is how we use Secure Protocol and Data Model (SPDM) protocol to communicate and record the device firmware measurement to trace the device firmware.
