Subject description: open source replacement for your BIOS / UEFI
 

https://www.coreboot.org/

coreboot is a replacement for your BIOS / UEFI with a strong focus on boot speed, security and flexibility. It is designed to boot your operating system as fast as possible without any compromise to security, with no back doors, and without any cruft from the 80s. It was originally designed for large super-computers with thousands of nodes, but it will run on your desktop, headless internet server, laptop, tablet or your favorite IoT device.

At the moment, it is not widespread, but you can find it pre-installed here :

The easiest way to get coreboot is to purchase a system with coreboot pre-installed. You can get coreboot pre-installed on many systems out there.


•The biggest deployment are Google's Chrome OS devices. The OnHub runs coreboot, as well as the Pixel C tablet.
•Pre-installed hardware is offered by Minifree Ltd, as the Libreboot distribution of coreboot.
•ORWL a new category of desktop computer designed using banking technologies to protect your encrypted data. ORWL requires both a key and a password to be used. ORWL protects against physical attacks and will secure erase if tampered with. ORWL will replace your desktop computer at work or at home and provide additional protection to your system.


Performance :
For desktops and laptop machines, it can frequently boot to the start of the operating system in under a second.
