OSLO - The Open Secure LOader


OSLO executable

OSLO, the Open Secure Loader, is the first available boot loader which uses the skinit instruction for authenticated booting. With around 1000 lines of code and a binary which is in the order of 4k auditing, bugfixing and in the end trusting OSLO should be possible.

See README for more details and the CHANGELOG for changes between the versions.
