Thanks a lot for doing this write-up, this clarifies things greatly. After arguing with a friend, I was wondering though where the requirement 'the user must be able to manage the key database' originates. Is this part of the Secure Boot specs or is this only required for Microsoft's Windows certification? Thanks!
