Opening Event OSFC 2020
In this talk I want to show the details of System Transparency's bootloader implementation. While the general ideas of System Transparency has been introduced during the last year, this talk will give insights of one of its core components — the stboot bootloader.
Although this project is still in its infancy, I will present the state of development. Thereby I provide a look back to early beginnings, the design goals, features that have been added in the course of the last year and recent security improvements. Further, design decisions the project is currently facing will be discussed. Finally, the different deployment scenarios are presented which give detailed information about how to use stboot in individual server fleet setups.
