National Institute of Standards and Technology, (Draft) Platform Firmware Resiliency Guidelines (NIST Special Publication 800-193) (May 2017) (full-text).

Overview[edit | edit source]

The platform is a collection of fundamental hardware and firmware components needed to boot and operate a computer system.

This document provides technical guidelines and recommendations supporting resiliency of platform firmware and data against potentially destructive attacks. These draft guidelines promote resiliency in the platform by describing security mechanisms for protecting the platform against unauthorized changes, detecting unauthorized changes that occur, and secure recovery from attacks. This document is intended to guide implementers, including system manufacturers and and component suppliers, on how to use these mechanisms to build a strong security foundation into platforms.
