If this is the case, what are the implications to Live
Will we not be able to boot off of Live to do maintenance
Do I misunderstand how UEFI lock works? Will it only lock
you out of the hard drive for booting purposes?
And, if you can still boot off of Live, will the lock
keep you out of doing maintenance on the hard drive?
pjones thinks the article is a mistake:
Also note that secure boot doesn't protect against an attacker with
physical access to the system. It protects against unauthorized updates
being applied automatically.
