Converged Security Suite Improvements

Open source tooling for BIOS configuration

The Converged Security Suite has been developed as an open-source tool to provision and test systems where proprietary (and closed) Intel Security Technologies - such as "Trusted Execution Environment", "BootGuard", and "Converged BootGuard and TXT" (CBnT) - are enabled. Since this is a security-critical operation, transparent open-source tooling is needed to securely provision and test the configuration of your system within the limitations of a closed system.

However, current configuration tools are not available for technical scrutiny and only available under NDA. The same applies to test suites that validate the system and its configuration.The Converged Security Suite tries to change this by implementing an open alternative for those tools. Within this project, the team will implement Bootguard (provisioning and test suite) and add CBnT test suite support.
