Description

After years of promises, 2012 finally saw the PC industry transition from the legacy BIOS interface to the slightly less legacy UEFI. UEFI gave us a firmware interface with modern functionality (High resolution graphics! Native support for IPv6! One-shot boots and fallback bootloader support!), but that's not enough. The modern world is a more threatening place than it was in 1981, and advances in OS security mean that the system firmware is now an attractive target.
