Update November 2022 - January 2023
Blancco has added some updates on the SHIM and on the application, the Linux community has asked a couple of questions, but still ”in-progress”.
Update November 2022
Blancco submits a new SHIM (as well as an official application) to be signed by Microsoft. This SHIM has to be reviewed by the Linux community first, then by Microsoft. If everything is OK, Microsoft signs the SHIM and Blancco can add it into Blancco Drive Eraser.
This procedure is not in the hands of Blancco and there is no clear ETA on when the Linux community will review the SHIM or when Microsoft will approve it.
Update October 2022
Blancco Development team starts building a new SHIM (binary that is signed by both Microsoft and Blancco, re-enabling the Secure Boot process).
