TrustedGRUB in new version 1.1.3

Sirrix AG publishes new release of the TCG-extended bootloader. The
main improvements beneath some minor bugfixes are support for GCC-4 as
well as Linux 2.6.23 (and above).

Additionally, the output of the checkfile-measurements have been improved.
The current version 1.1.3 of TrustedGRUB is available for download on our sourceforge project page.

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.
