My question is: what would happen when one should use - as I did today - a bootable CD like System Rescue Disc? (I am guessing that if this were the openSUSE installation DVD then it would have some code in it which would allow it to boot without problems.)
The openSUSE installation DVD will of course boot, having all the proper signatures that you needed to install the OS in the first place. And it will be booting the kernel present on the DVD, which is signed by the SUSE key.
In case you wanted to create your own rescue DVD that'd be booting custom kernels, that'll be possible, too, using the same shim loader you'll be able to enroll your MOK, or just use one if already present on the system.
Thank you for confirming what I suspected.
My apologies for using the wrong name for the CD I mentioned above, however I was wondering how a bootable CD such as the SystemRescueCD which comes from systemrescuecd.org (http://www.sysresccd.org/SystemRescueCd_Homepage), and similar bootable media, would boot under this UEFI process?
