Measured Boot

Measures firmware components and records them into a platform storage device such as Trusted Platform Module (TPM) or Intel® Platform Trust Technology (Intel® PTT). The recorded measurement can be compared with a golden value, i.e. the expected unique measurement that was calculated on a known, good system. If the measurement does not match the golden measurement the system integrity is considered compromised.

The integrity of a remote system can be ascertained by comparing the measurement reported by the system to the golden value.

SBL implements measured boot and supports both discrete TPM device or Intel® PTT (Platform Trusted Technology).


Measured boot should be enabled in conjunction with verified boot to achieve firmware security.


Measured boot feature is not enabled in SBL default build. See Pre Build Customization on how to enable it.
