NORCROSS, GA, USA – AMI, Inc. (AMI), a global leader in BIOS, remote management and network data storage solutions, is pleased to introduce a new solution for its flagship Aptio® V UEFI Firmware that is compatible with the NIST SP 800-155 “BIOS Integrity Measurement Guidelines”.
In its Special Publication 800-155, NIST outlines the fundamentals of BIOS integrity measurement. This description includes a method to determine if the BIOS has been modified as well as the method for reporting and mitigating attacks against the BIOS.
“These guidelines describe what is needed to establish a chain of trust for the BIOS,” commented Subramonian Shankar, President and CEO of AMI. “In accordance with the NIST SP 800-155 guidelines, our Aptio V Firmware solution provides a means of generating and collecting the original BIOS measurements, called ‘the Golden Measurement Generation’, along with a means of storing the measurements that is either tamper-resistant or tamper-evident, called ‘the Collection Agent’ and a means of conveying the measurements to an analyzing agent, called the ‘Transmission and Reporting Agents’.”
“Our goal in developing a NIST SP 800-155 compatible solution for Aptio V was to demonstrate to our customers that AMI is deeply committed to developing the most secure and tamper-resistant UEFI solutions available in the market today,” he commented.
