A Step-by-Step Guide for Creating Signed Secure Bootable VxWorks 7 UEFI Boot Loader and Signed Final Images
Application Note Overview
In an era where security is paramount in many systems, it is intrinsic for users to be able to boot and load software that is guaranteed to be as secure by using a trust-based mechanism. Using UEFI Secure Boot allows the user to have confidence in their systems functioning as intended, without the possibility of any tampering or altering of the operating system and associated drivers.
With VxWorks — a real-time operating system (RTOS) that can be used in embedded systems — users can control their application in the correct time frame. This RTOS also ensures applications and products are working within tight latency in a deterministic fashion to enable complete control of the operating system for the user.
In this application note by Concurrent Technologies, learn about VxWorks, UEFI Secure Boot and why they are used in Concurrent Technologies’ Embedded Solutions.
