    Support for Intel XEON Skylake Server with tool CHIPSEC

    StephaneHebert Community Member

      I wanted to try the tool "chipsec" on an Intel Purley platform (XEON 8176 and Lewisburg PCH).

       

      Note: the chipsec tool is mentioned in Intel doc #557274 Platform Secure Configuration Specification for Skylake Platforms.

       

      Description of the tool:

      CHIPSEC is a framework for analyzing the security of PC platforms including hardware, system firmware (BIOS/UEFI), and platform components. It includes a security test suite, tools for accessing various low level interfaces, and forensic capabilities. It can be run on Windows, Linux, Mac OS X and UEFI shell.

       

      The tool is available from: https://github.com/chipsec/chipsec.git

       

      The tool detects several Intel CPU+PCH chipset combinations, but not the Skylake Server or PCH Lewisburg.

      Is there any plan to add support for the Purley platform to chipsec?
