CHIPSEC: Platform Security Assessment Framework

Project description

CHIPSEC is a framework for analyzing the security of PC platforms including hardware, system firmware (BIOS/UEFI), and platform components. It includes a security test suite, tools for accessing various low level interfaces, and forensic capabilities. It can be run on Windows, Linux, Mac OS X and UEFI shell. Instructions for installing and using CHIPSEC can be found in the [manual](chipsec-manual.pdf).

NOTE: This software is for security testing purposes. Use at your own risk. Read WARNING.txt before using.

First version of CHIPSEC was released in March 2014: Announcement at CanSecWest 2014: https://cansecwest.com/slides/2014/Platform%20Firmware%20Security%20Assessment%20wCHIPSEC-csw14-final.pdf

Recent presentation on how to use CHIPSEC to find vulnerabilities in firmware, hypervisors and hardware configuration, explore low level system assets and even detect firmware implants: Exploring Your System Deeper: https://www.slideshare.net/CanSecWest/csw2017-bazhaniuk-exploringyoursystemdeeperupdated
