This month we are welcoming Pacific NorthWest FirmWare Hackers. PNWFHW meets randomly at various places, speaking on development and security topics of modern system firmware (UEFI, U-Boot, core boot, etc.). I am pleased to have them lead an event for us.

Speakers:

1. The first speaker is Emergency Mexican (his DEF CON goon nym). He works at a local hardware startup working on ARM32 systems. He’ll be speaking on using building custom payloads with the U-Boot boot loader.

2. The second speaker is Vincent Zimmer, a senior principal engineer at Intel, working on UEFI. Vincent chairs the UEFI Forum network and security subteams. Vincent will talk about the latest updates in the UEFI specifications for security and networking. He’ll also discuss open source community updates.

Please RSVP early so we call the pizza man and make proper arrangements.
