Configuring SPARC Verified Boot Properties

On some of Oracle's SPARC systems, Verified Boot can be used to verify system boot blocks and Oracle Solaris kernel modules before they are loaded on the system. Use Oracle ILOM to enable Verified Boot and to specify how the system should respond when a verification check fails. Enabling Verified Boot can prevent harmful changes to the system boot blocks or Oracle Solaris kernel modules from taking effect. For further details about setting this policy in Oracle ILOM, see the following table.

To use the Verified Boot feature, Oracle Solaris 11.2 or later must be installed on the system.

Before you upload certificates to verify Oracle Solaries kernel modules, ensure that the following requirements are met:

Table 67 Verified Boot Properties

User Interface Configurable Target and User Role:
  • SP CLI: /HOST/verified_boot

  • Domain CLI: /HOSTx/verified_boot, where x is the number of the host domain on a multi-domain system

  • Web: Host Management > Verified Boot

  • User Role: Reset and Host Control (r) role

Property
Default
Description
Boot Policy

(boot_policy )

none
none |warning|enforce
  • none – The system does not run verification checks on boot blocks, unix, or geunix.

  • warning – When a verification check fails, a warning message is logged on the host console, and the boot process continues.

  • When a verification check fails, an error message is logged on the host console, and the boot process is aborted.

CLI Syntax for Boot Policy:

set /HOST|HOSTx/verified_boot boot_policy=none|warning|enforce

Module Policy (module_policy)
none
none |warning|enforce
  • none – The system does not run verification checks on Oracle Solaris kernel modules.

  • warning – When a verification check fails, a warning message is logged on the host console, and the kernel module is loaded.

  • When a verification check fails, an error message is logged on the host console, and the kernel module is not loaded.

CLI Syntax for Module Policy:

set /HOST|HOSTx/verified_boot module_policy=none|warning|enforce

System Certificates

(/system_certs/1)

View the system_certs/1 target for details about pre-installed certificate files, such as the issuer and subject of the file.
User Certificates

(/user_certs/n)

Load up to five custom certificate files to verify Solaris kernel modules other than unix and geunix. View the user_certs/n target for details about user-loaded certificate files, such as the issuer and subject of the files.

CLI Syntax for Loading a Custom Certificate File at Boot:

set /HOST|HOSTx/verified_boot/user_certs/n load_uri=protocol://certificate_URI, where n is the ID you want to associate with the certificate file and protocol is any of the transfer protocols supported by Oracle ILOM. For a list of supported protocols, see Supported File Transfer Methods.

CLI Syntax for Removing a Custom Certificate File for Verified Boot:

reset /HOST|HOSTx/verfied_boot/user_certs/n, where n is the ID of the certificate file you want to remove.
