Go easy on your power bill! The Blackbird Secure Desktop is an affordable, owner-controllable, desktop and entry workstation system. Built around the IBM POWER9 processor, and leveraging Linux and OpenPOWER technology, Blackbird allows you to secure your data without sacrificing performance. Designed with a fully owner-controlled CPU domain, you can audit and modify any portion of the open source firmware on the Blackbird mainboard, all the way down to the CPU microcode. This is an unprecedented level of access for any modern desktop-class machine, and one that is increasingly needed to assure safety and compliance with new regulations, such as the EU’s GDPR.
An owner-controlled, CPU-based secure boot mode also is available at any time. When secure boot is properly configured, and if the mainboard is located in a physically secure environment (e.g., a secure computing room or locked desktop case), you can be assured that only your pre-approved and pre-audited firmware, kernel, and user space components are executing on a Blackbird system.
