u-bmc as greenfield BMC firmware


BMCs generally come with protocols such as IPMI, is monitored via SNMP, and uses classical password authentication. What if we consider that these rules can be bent and broken?

Enter u-bmc, a spiritual adoption of LinuxBoot but for your BMC. We will look at what a normal BMC consists of and why that's a problem, what u-bmc can do to help with that, and what we can improve on in the future to help the industry move forward.
