Linaro makes LUVos-live available for ARM64

LUVos (Linux UEFI Validation — aka luvOS or LUVos, is a Yocto-based Linux distro that helps diagnose UEFI firmware. LUV-live is a liveimage boot version of LUVos. LUV-live also includes other hardware/firmware tools, such as BITS, FWTS, and CHIPSEC.

Intel-based LUV was initially only targeting Intel platforms. But LUV is an open source project, with a healthy community of contributors.

Recently Linaro has been porting LUV to ARM64. Thanks, Linaro! This is great news for ARM64 Linux enterprise hardware. Once Linaro ports CHIPSEC to ARM, it’ll be a very good day for ARM64 firmware defensive security tools.

It would be nice to consider an ARM32 port, as well as ARM64. All devices need bootkit detection tools, not just enterprise-class systems. 🙂

[Someone please wake up AMD. Right now, AFAICT, their platform now has the worst defensive tools. They need a LUV-live with a CHIPSEC that works on ARM systems.]
