UEFI Forum Releases the UEFI 2.10 Specification and the ACPI 6.5 Specification

The UEFI Forum today announced the launch of the Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI) 2.10 specification and State-of-the-art Configuration and Power Interface (ACPI) 6.5 specification. The new specification versions broaden guidance for new processor varieties, memory interfaces and platform types, even though permitting for crypto agility in article-quantum process security.

“We are energized to share the new Conformance Profiles attribute, responsive to neighborhood pull for a way to make the UEFI Forum’s perform beneficial,” mentioned Mark Doran, UEFI Forum President. “The Conformance Profiles feature will expand the platform types UEFI can aid to an ever wider assortment of platform varieties like IoT, embedded and automotive areas – further than standard purpose computer systems.”

UEFI 2.10 Specification Highlights:

  • Introducing UEFI Conformance Profiles, allowing for assist for much more varieties of platforms and implementation codebases
  • Crypto agility including SHA-384/SHA-512 signing scheme for Authenticated Variables aid
  • Rising LoongArch and RISC-V processor architecture assistance
  • Increase confidential computing extension

ACPI 6.5 Specification Highlights:

  • CXL Memory guidance
  • LoongArch processor architecture guidance
  • Private Computing event log help
  • USB-C USB4 help

The ACPI 6.5 specification update is made up of the most variations ever produced working with the “Code First” method of the UEFI Discussion board. This course of action acknowledges the precious insights and contributions of open up-source communities to the progress of the requirements preserved by the UEFI Discussion board and enables non-members a path to lead to the requirements.

To master extra, obtain the UEFI 2.10 specification and the ACPI 6.5 specification on the UEFI Forum Specification webpage. The UEFI Specification 2.9 Errata A and ACPI Specification 6.4 Errata A are also out there on the specs webpage.
