UEFI (Unified Extensible Firmware Interface) and Secure Boot is speeding up the industry's transition from legacy BIOS to firmware producing the UEFI. The UEFI standard enjoys a large amount of support within the industry already. The UEFI standard organization has companies like Intel, AMD, Apple, Microsoft, and a number of BIOS and motherboard makers on it. As a result, UEFI will be the way forward as modern operating systems are all compatible with UEFI standards.
These extensible, globally-recognized specifications bring new functionality and enhanced security to the evolution of devices, firmware and operating systems as well as to facilitate interoperability between platforms and systems that comply with next-generation technologies.
One advantage of UEFI is that device drivers can target it instead of the specific hardware. This means that instead of writing drivers for different platforms, they can just be written once. UEFI can be just as powerful as a “real” OS. It can access all the memory installed in a system and make use of its own little disk storage space – a sequestered area of on-board flash storage or hard disk space called the EFI System Partition. New modules can be easily added (hence “Extensible”) that includes device drivers for motherboard components and external peripherals, so user options can be presented in an attractive graphical front-end, controlled with the mouse. On touch screen hardware, it’s possible to change system settings by swiping and tapping. It’s all a far cry from the clunky blue configuration screen of most BIOS implementations.
