Dear all, Is it true that there's code provided by the NSA implemented in Coreboot? https://www.tomshardware.com/news/nsa-contributes-low-level-stm-coreboot,39704.html Any thoughts? Cheers

Remember that the project was started by Los Alamos National Labs (LANL), the guys that also brought you the Manhattan Project. Contributions have also been made by the BSI (German version of the NSA) and their contractors.
Thanks for the info. Didn't know that. Now, one has to wonder how many skilled developers actually do read and understand their code. IIRC Leah Rowe paid someone $90.000 for adding some code to LibreBoot. I'm mentioning this because it leads to the assumption that boot coding must be a pretty difficult task.
