American Megatrends Sponsors Successful Fall 2018 UEFI Plugfest in Taipei, Taiwan

November 30, 2018:

NORCROSS, Georgia - American Megatrends Inc. (AMI), a global leader in BIOS and UEFI firmware, server and remote management tools, data storage products and unique solutions based on the Linux® and Android™ operating systems, attended and co-sponsored the recent Fall 2018 UEFI Plugfest, held in Taipei, Taiwan from October 15-19, 2018.

The Fall 2018 UEFI Seminar and Plugfest brings together leading experts and introduces the latest UEFI firmware advancements. The event is an opportunity to meet with industry colleagues, test the latest platforms, devices and firmware, as well as learn about the newest UEFI enhancements. To see more on the Fall 2018 UEFI Plugfest, please visit http://uefi.org/learning_center/presentationsandvideos/

American Megatrends presented a track during the event, which focused on Advanced Trusted Platform Module (TPM) Usage. TPMs, introduced by the Trusted Computing Group, have been an integral part of platform security for more than 10 years, evolving over the years through several technology updates. However, from a firmware perspective, many of the security-based capabilities of TPMs have been somewhat overlooked. AMI’s presentation covered TPM usage from a generic standpoint for firmware, along with the latest applications of TPMs including TPM usage on x86 and Arm®-based architectures, innovative solutions based on TPM usage, and updates on industry requirements.

The Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI) Forum is a non-profit industry standards body responsible for developing, managing and promoting UEFI specifications. To learn more about the UEFI Forum and future UEFI Plugfest events, please visit http://uefi.org/.
