BIOS Protection on the Controller
BIOS Protection enables you to protect and securely update BIOS flash for Intel-based platforms. If BIOS Protection is not used, the flash utility that stores the BIOS for an Intel platform is not write-protected. As a result, when BIOS updates are applied, malicious code also makes its way through.
By default, BIOS Protection works by bundling the flash containing the BIOS image, and by accepting updates only through the BIOS capsules that enable writing on the BIOS Flash.
