OEMs charge users to enable (or disable) security features

Does the automotive industry charge for seat belts? 🙂

Maybe someone should create an open source project for Tianocore that has boot menu option (UEFI browser form) code to enable/disable everything that Intel/ARM/AMD/etc make configurble, an these menu options should be made available to any IBV/OEM that wants to include them. Having them there reduces friction for vendors who didn’t have those features before, and provides something for customers to point to when they say “I want more control of my security configurability in my firmware.”
