systemd-boot, systemd-stub, UKIs

The systemd projects has been providing an UEFI boot menu (systemd-boot) and UEFI stub (systemd-stub) since a while among its components. In this talk I'd like to explain the why, the what and the how around these components, and how to implement a simpler, more secure and robust boot chain with them, and why we encourage Linux users to do so.

We'll focus on the OS integration points of these components, and in particular the security angle, i.e. TPM, measurements, systemd's "credentials" concept and more.
