Secure start-up systems are designed to protect sensitive data, stop unauthorised changes and ensure that only digitally signed and certified applications are executed. This is particularly important when you are using devices with edges that are vulnerable to attack.
Secure Boot is a protocol in UEFI (Unified Extensible Firmware Interface) that is activated every time the system is booted. It is integrated with the TPM, a hardware-based data security tool.
Secure Boot examines the authenticity of the bootloader before allowing the operating system or other functional applications to be launched. This ensures that the kernel, drivers, and other components are legitimate. Cryptography is used to implement the security mechanisms. For secure boot to be effective, the code in the bootloader operating system, operating system and other functional applications must be designed securely and thoroughly checked for any flaws in the course of the development process for software.
If you want to use secure startup on your LG device then you’ll need a PIN. If someone attempts to guess your pin through trial and mistake more than a specific number of times, it will block the device and require a password to regain functionality. This helps to prevent any unauthorized access to your device and all the information on it, and can also prevent accidental misuse by check that someone who could have gained physical access to it.
