TrenchBoot - project status update

TrenchBoot is an open source project led by 3mdeb, Apertus Solutions, and Oracle. It aims at the security and integrity of the boot process by leveraging advanced silicon security features, like Intel Trusted Execution Technology (TXT) and AMD Secure Startup. It integrates with open source projects like GRUB2, Xen, and Linux, to perform a measured launch of the operating system software, also called Dynamic Root of Trust for Measurement (DRTM).

The presentation will provide an overview of the project's current status, emphasizing two key developments: the improved support for AMD platforms, a contribution from Oracle and the practical application of the TrenchBoot project in QubesOS Anti Evil Maid (AEM), a contribution by 3mdeb.
