Time: 9:00am-6:00pm
Cost: Free for LinuxCon Europe All-Access attendees
Register: To register, simply add the event when you register for LinuxCon Europe.

The UEFI Mini-Summit is a full-day event introducing the latest UEFI firmware and ACPI advancements related to Linux development. Discussions will cover "how to" guidance, implementation options, and firmware tools and resources available for successful ARM and x86 platform integration.

Open to all conference attendees, the Mini-Summit is hosted by the UEFI Forum, the non-profit organization responsible for developing the UEFI, PI and ACPI specifications. UEFI Forum members will be available to discuss comments or questions attendees may have about the sessions, and also welcome any feedback about UEFI firmware in the open source community. Information about UEFI membership opportunities will be available during the summit and Technology Showcase.

The Full-Day schedule includes the following sessions:

UEFI Forum Update and Open Source Community Benefits – Mark Doran, Intel 
Learn about the recent UEFI Forum activities and the continued adoption of UEFI technology. To ensure greater transparency and participation from the open source community, the Forum has decided to allow for public review of all specification drafts. Find out more about this new offering and other benefits to being involved in firmware standards development by attending this session.  

What Linux Developers Need to Know About Recent UEFI Spec Advances – Jeff Bobzin, Insyde Software
Users of modern client and server systems are demanding strong security and enhanced reliability. Many large distros have asked for automated installation of a local secure boot profile. The UEFI Forum has responded with the new Audit Mode specified in the UEFI specification, v2.5, offering new capabilities, enhanced system integrity, OS recovery and firmware update processes. Attend this session to find out more about the current plans and testing schedules of the new sample code and features.

LUV Shack: An automated Linux kernel and UEFI firmware testing infrastructure – Matt Flemming, Intel 
The Linux UEFI Validation (LUV) Project was created out of necessity. Prior to it, there was no way to validate the interaction of the Linux kernel and UEFI firmware at all stages of the boot process and all levels of the software stack. At Intel, the LUV project is used to check for regressions and bugs in both eh Linux kernel and EDK2-based firmware. They affectionately refer to this testing farm as the LUV shack. This talk will cover the LUV shack architecture and validation processes.

The Move from iPXE to Boot from HTTP – Dong Wei, HP
iPXE relies on Legacy BIOS which is currently is deployed by most of the world’s ISPs. As a result, the majority of x86 servers are unable to update and move to a more secure firmware platform using UEFI. Fortunately, there is a solution. Replacing iPXE with the new BOOT from HTTP mechanism will help us get there. Attend this session to learn more.

UEFI Development in an Open Source Ecosystem – Vincent Zimmer and Michael Krau, Intel 
Open source development around UEFI technology continues to progress with improved community hosting, communications and source control methodologies. These community efforts create valuable opportunities to integrate firmware functions into distros. Most prevalent UEFI tools available today center on chain of trust security via Secure Boot and Intel® Platform Trust Technology (PTT) tools. This session will address the status of these and other tools. Attendees will have the opportunity to share feedback as well as recommendations for future open UEFI development resources and processes.
