Dear Andreas, and especially also Olaf and Vojtech!

Thank you very much for this series of blog posts! I appreciate that somebody actually first took the time to understand the matter, analyze it, come up with a proposal and then starts writing about it.

The approach you present indeed looks like a very good compromise. I'm sure we ALL agree that 'security' for an own computer is crucial; maybe less on the 'hobby cellar server', but for the working horse we all have it is.

The proposed solution seems to go the right way, allowing the user to introduce an own set of keys (thus, remaining the 'owner' and 'decider' over his machine, as well as also having the security UEFI is supposed to provide.

I'm looking forward to the implementation of this! Do we already have an outlined schedule of when something like this shall be available? (most of it of course is done, based on Fedoras work, and the blog series seems to target SLE11SP3... when would that be?)

Best regards,
Dominique
