Bonus item 0: What support fore sOpenBMC have for mTLS client

DISCUSSION: See the Redfish APIs referenced below.  Redfish doesn’t 
support mTLS, but BMCWeb does support mTLS.  Is there a supported 
interface for the BMC admin to upload an mTLS client cert to the BMC?

This was included for awareness only, not to propose using this schema.

This seems similar to the forms needed to create CVEs such as here: <>

OpenBMC’s current guidelines for collecting this kind of information are

2 Email: Update phosphor-defaults with stronger root password hash 
algorithm - 


The group agreed to change the project’s default root password hash, 
while leaving the cleartext password the same.  TODO: Joseph will 
propose the change via a gerrit review.

Topics added after the meeting started:

3 What is the status of the OpenBMC BMC secure boot function?  Who is 
working on it?


ASpeed AST2600 BMC secure boot using AST2600 hardware without TPM and 
without any special hardware (other than pullup resistors).  Interest in 
avoiding Cerberus.

See also Design 

Two ways to validate uboot: via AST2600 hardware, via Cerberus

Once uboot is running, use uboot to validate the FIT image, kernel, etc.

4 What is happening with the Intel Hack-a-thon 2?


5 What is happening with getting a private database to track 
vulnerability submissions?  This would be used by the OpenBMC security 
response team 
record security vulnerabilities which were reported to OpenBMC and not 
yet fixed or publicly disclosed.  Only members of the OpenBMC security 
response team would have access (read/write access).


Surya plans to set up bugzilla.

Contact Andrew Geissler in his role as OpenBMC community infrastructure 
if you need a server.

6 What is happening with deploying AppArmor?


Nobody was tracking it closely enough to answer.  Anton had been working 
on it.  See reviews under
