Apple Secure Boot deep dive: The future of the macOS platform?

Speakers: Pepijn Bruienne

Level: Intermediate, Lecture

Excerpt: Apple’s hybrid ARM/Intel iMac Pro chimed in a new chapter for the macOS platform. We will look at what Secure Boot and the T-series security coprocessor mean for the future of the platform.

Description: Join Pepijn Bruienne as he presents results of his research into the inner workings of the new iMac Pro, all the while speculating wildly yet purposefully about what the introduction of Secure Boot, security coprocessors and a major change to the early boot process means for the future of the platform. We’ll also look at challenges this new world of Secure Boot poses for Macadmins and their existing processes.
