Michael, this is very much worth my study, even if I might not be
implementing all of it. I suspect that Cisco "Security Appliances"
have very little on you outside of hardware tweaks.

When I worked for Intel, they had a bunch of security code tweaks
above and beyond their secure boot functionality. These had to do with
the shadow processor built into every x86 and the code had a Chinese
name that escapes me... something about flowers. Are you familiar with
