Some organizations may opt to enable the Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI) protocols for 'Secure Boot'.
Are any components of Siteminder susceptible to problems if Secure Boot is enabled?
Release : 12.8.06
Secure boot is a cross-industry security standard to ensure PC/Servers boot using trusted software. Secure Boot runs as firmware and, at boot time, validates the signature of each boot software. Firmware loading with an invalid signature are preventing from starting up.
Secure Boot is supported on most hardware running the following operating systems:
Windows Server: 2012 and higher
VMware: vSphere 6.5
Fedora: 18 and higher
openSUSE: 12.3 and higher
RHEL: 7 and higher
CentOS 7 and higher
Debian 10 and higher
Ubuntu: 12.04.2 and higher
Siteminder does not run as Firmware. There are no Kernel Modules used with any Siteminder Component. Configuring Secure Boot will not adversely impact any Siteminder components.
