TrenchBoot is a cross-community OSS integration project for hardware-rooted, late launch integrity of open and proprietary systems. It provides a general purpose, open-source DRTM kernel for measured system launch and attestation of device integrity to trust-centric access infrastructure. TrenchBoot closes the UEFI Measurement Gap and reduces the need to trust system firmware. This talk will introduce TrenchBoot architecture and a recent collaboration with Oracle to launch the Linux kernel directly with Intel TXT or AMD SVM Secure Launch. It will propose mechanisms for integrating the Xen hypervisor into a TrenchBoot system launch. DRTM-enabled capabilities for client, server and embedded platforms will be presented for consideration by the Xen community.
