Release of NIST SP 800-147B, BIOS Protection Guidelines for Servers
Andrew R. Regenscheid, Larry Feldman, Gregory A. Witte
Modern computers rely on fundamental system firmware, commonly known as the Basic Input/Output System (BIOS), to enable system components to communicate and work together. The BIOS is typically developed by both original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and independent BIOS vendors. Manufacturers frequently update system firmware to fix bugs, patch vulnerabilities, and support new hardware, but an unauthorized update constitutes a significant threat because of the BIOSs unique and privileged position within the computing architecture
