Jeff Hoogland tries to make the point that M$’s “secure boot” protocol is only a problem if OEMs do not give Linux the key…
He’s drunk the Koolaid. How are OEMs to give Linux the key without giving it to every Tom, Dick and Harry malware writer??? Linux is open source software. Kernel.org does not distribute signed binaries but source code. If the key is in the source code somehow, the world can see it and so can the malware artists.
The bottom line is that the OEMs will not give GNU/Linux the key. They might give some distros the key but that would violate the GPL if the distros use it. You cannot give someone a licence to run the code and then deny them to run the code.
Further, M$ can well twist OEMs’ arms to change the key for M$’s next release, or they can have keys revoked.
