Secure Start Up Systems For LG Edge Devices

Secure start-up systems assist to safeguard sensitive data, prevent any unauthorized modifications and ensure only certified and digitally signed software is executed. This is especially crucial when working with devices on the edge 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 used in conjunction with TPM the hardware-based data security tool.

Secure Boot checks the authenticity of the bootloader prior to allowing the operating system or other applications that are functional to be launched. This ensures that the kernel and drivers are genuine. The security mechanisms behind this process are based on crypto. For secure boot to be effective, the code used in the bootloader operating system, operating system and other functional applications must be developed in a secure manner and thoroughly tested for flaws as part of the process of software development.

If you’d like to use the secure start feature on your LG device it is required to have a PIN or a pattern. If someone attempts to guess your pin using trial and error more than a specified number of times, it will block the device and require a password to regain functionality. This stops unauthorized access to the device and its information, as well as accidental misuse by anyone who may have physical access.
