UEFI Lockdown Quick Guidance

Abstract: Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI) provides multiple levels of password-based boot control.  Three password levels are used to interact with machine firmware prior to the operating system boot.  Failure to secure these accounts can open machines up to unauthorized, undesired, and repudiated boot device changes, device/component firmware configuration changes, and unauthorized connectivity to peripheral devices.
