First, I would like to congratulate you for working on a Free BIOS.
Is there a way to lock-down SEABIOS with a password like a traditional computer. I know most computers have BIOS magic passwords, but ... some don't and a good password will always slow down an attack.
Does SeaBIOS support password protection?
No. The SeaBIOS project is focused on providing BIOS compatibility so that one can boot common operating systems. Support for menus, run time configuration, and low level hardware initialization isn't the primary focus. It is expected projects like QEMU and coreboot will handle those tasks.
In a nutshell, there isn't really anything in SeaBIOS to password protect and so no reason for a password.
