[opensuse-factory] UEFI Secure Boot in Fedora
Juat a heads-up for those who didn't see it yet:

Implementing UEFI Secure Boot in Fedora
http://mjg59.dreamwidth.org/12368.html

TL;DR:

- All Windows 8 hardware will ship with secure boot enabled.
- Fedora doesn't want to have to make users fiddle with their firmware
settings in order to run Fedora, so must support secure boot.
- They're doing a multi-layer thing:
- A tiny bootloader, signed with a microsoft key, loads:
- a real bootloader (grub 2), signed with a fedora key which loads:
- the kernel (& thus modules), also signed with fedora keys.

Presumably it's worth evaluating this to see if a similar approach is
suitable for openSUSE.

Regards,

Tim
