Submission + - Ubuntu Lays Plans For Getting Past UEFI SecureBoot (phoronix.com)

An anonymous reader writes: Canonical has laid out their plans for handling UEFI SecureBoot on Ubuntu Linux. Similar to Red Hat paying Microsoft to get past UEFI restrictions, Canonical does have a private UEFI key. Beyond that they will also be switching from GRUB to the more liberal efilinux bootloader, only require bootloader binaries be signed, and they want to setup their own signing infrastructure separate from Microsoft.
