Verified Boot Commands

The Oracle Verified Boot function enables Oracle Solaris to verify the integrity of software and firmware that is installed on the server before it is loaded and executed. When Oracle Solaris verifies that specific software or firmware has not been tampered with, the module is assigned a system certificate.

Use Oracle ILOM to perform the following verification-related tasks:

For information about setting Oracle Verified Boot properties with the features that are common to all platforms managed by Oracle ILOM, refer to the Oracle ILOM documentation at:

The following table shows the commands used to perform these tasks using the Oracle ILOM CLI.

Enable verification.
  • Enable boot verification for boot blocks and the initial two Oracle Solaris modules, UNIX and GENUNIX on a specific domain. If verification fails for a boot block, UNIX, or GENUNIX, Oracle Solaris logs an error message and generates a system panic.

    -> set /Servers/PDomains/PDomain_x/HOST/verified_boot/ boot_policy=enforce

  • Enable boot verification for module policies (modules after UNIX and GENUNIX) on a specific domain. If verification fails for a Solaris module, Oracle Solaris logs an error message and does not load the module, but Oracle Solaris will continue to execute.

    -> set /Servers/PDomains/PDomain_x/HOST/verified_boot/ module_policy=enforce

Note - Setting either of these properties to warning causes Oracle Solaris to log an error message with no further action.

View system certificates.
  • View the preinstalled certificates for a specific domain.

    -> show /Servers/PDomains/PDomain_x/HOST/verified_boot/ system_certs

  • View the user-managed certificates for a specific domain.

    -> show /Servers/PDomains/PDomain_x/HOST/verified_boot/ user_certs

  • View the preinstalled Oracle Solaris system certificate for a specific domain.

    -> show /Servers/PDomains/PDomain_x/HOST/verified_boot/ system_certs/1

  • View the user-managed certificates for a specific domain.

    -> show /Servers/PDomains/PDomain_x/HOST/verified_boot/ user_certs/x

    where x is a value of 1–5, indicating which public key certificate you want to load.

Delete a user-managed certificate.
-> reset /Servers/PDomains/PDomain_x/HOST/verified_boot/ user_certs/x
Verify the deletion of a user-managed certificate.
-> show /Servers/PDomains/PDomain_x/HOST/verified_boot/ user_certs/x issuer



     issuer = (none)
