A Tour Beyond BIOS Implementing Profiling in EDK II
Jiewen Yao, Vincent Zimmer, Star Zeng, Fan Jeff
The Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI) and Platform Initialization (PI) specification defines rich execution environments such as Security (SEC), Pre-EFI Initialization (PEI), Driver Execution Environment (DXE), System Management Mode (SMM) and UEFI Runtime (RT) for firmware drivers. There are more and more features added into a firmware. At same time, the firmware still has a resource constrained environment. In addition to functionality, the size, performance, and security are three major concerns of a firmware engineer. This paper introduces several profiling features implemented in EDK II to help the UEFI firmware developer to analyze the size, performance and security of a UEFI firmware implementation.

Getting Started with UEFI HTTP over TLS (HTTPS) Boot on EDK II
Wu Jiaxin
HTTP over TLS (HTTPS) boot is a standard implementation for securely booting using the Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI) over a network device. HTTPS Boot is especially important for clients using potentially insecure networks outside of corporate infrastructure. Security for UEFI HTTPS Boot is provided by the underlying Transport Layer Security (TLS).
This document assumes that the reader is familiar with the EDK II HTTP Boot Getting Started Guide.
