Steps to Enable Secure Boot on Gigabyte Motherboards

1. Enable fTPM

If you need to get more familiar with fTPM, first let me tell you what it is; ftpm is a CPU hardware protection module implemented in the system firmware instead of a dedicated chip. In other words, it’s a specific type of solution that only runs while in a safe environment in a CPU. The sole purpose of having TPM is to solve all the bugs found in the firmware of the CPU. All the AMD and Intel-based latest CPUs have started arriving with fTPM.
