shim-signed 1.5~12.04.1 source package in Ubuntu


shim-signed (1.5~12.04.1) precise; urgency=low

  * Backport to Ubuntu 12.04 LTS.

shim-signed (1.5) trusty; urgency=low

  * Pass --target=x86_64-efi to grub-install from the postinst and depend on
    grub-efi-amd64-bin, so that package upgrades will do the right thing
    even if the system has been rebooted under BIOS.  LP: #1246910.
  * Kubuntu sets GRUB_DISTRIBUTOR to a different value which doesn't match
    the path under /boot/efi; fix this up so shim-signed upgrades properly
    on Kubuntu systems.  LP: #1242417.

shim-signed: Secure Boot chain-loading bootloader (Microsoft-signed binary)

 This package provides a minimalist boot loader which allows verifying
 signatures of other UEFI binaries against either the Secure Boot DB/DBX or
 against a built-in signature database. Its purpose is to allow a small,
 infrequently-changing binary to be signed by the UEFI CA, while allowing
 an OS distributor to revision their main bootloader independently of the CA.
 This package contains the version of the bootloader binary signed by the
 Microsoft UEFI CA.
