UEFI has become ubiquitous on the PC client systems and is coming up on servers and ARM-based systems, it is becoming the converged firmware infrastructure. UEFI Secure Boot feature has attracted a lot of attention from the Linux community. Linux distros and Linux Foundation have found solutions.  This presentation provides a review of the motivations behind the creation of the UEFI technology, the history, the current status, and the future. It provides an update on the new significant developments since the publication of UEFI Spec v2.3.1C last June. It also serves as a venue for Q&A with the Linux community.

The main targeted audience of this presentation is the Linux OS loader and kernel developers dealing with the machine dependent interactions with the platforms.
