TrustedGRUB supports Xen

Sirrix AG publishes new release of the TCG-extended bootloader coming with Xen support and beautified output of measurements.
Version 1.1.0 of TrustedGRUB has been released and can be downloaded at Sourceforge. New features include the correct measurement of arbitrary multiboot kernels, e.g., Xen. Additionally, the build-options and the SHA1-output have been extended and more beautified.

TrustedGRUB is an extension of the original GNU GRUB bootloader. It has been modified to detect and support the new Trusted Computing functionalities provided by a Trusted Platform Module (TPM) as specified by the Trusted Computing Group (TCG).

The main feature of TrustedGRUB is the possibility to measure arbitrary files during the boot process and extend the integrity test results into so called "Platform Configuration Registers (PCR)" inside TPMs memory.
