Hi All,

The Firmware Firewall is something that the OpenBMC stack does not 
implement today. Do you know how useful this is to an IPMI user? Is this 
something we must implement in the IPMI stack?

It seems to apply to malicious firmware running on the BMC in a blade 
server/multi-bmc environment, but aren't those concerns addressed by 
signed images and/or other modern security features?
