> considering Secure Boot (2012-06-30)
> We have been working hard the last several months to stop Restricted
> Boot, a major threat to user freedom, free software ideals, and free
> software adoption. Under the guise of security, a computer afflicted
> with Restricted Boot refuses to boot any operating systems other than
> the ones the computer distributor has approved in advance. Restricted
> Boot takes control of the computer away from the user and puts it in
> the hands of someone else. This is distinct from Secure Boot, where
> the user has full control over the system.
> Recently, two popular GNU/Linux distributions have announced their
> plans to support Secure Boot. In this article, we review their plans,
> and lay out our current strategy for addressing the threats and
> difficulties posed by this new technology for the free software
> movement. We find any approach that requires users to trust Microsoft
> or any proprietary software company unacceptable, and urge
> distributions to pursue other solutions.
