Description
This is the system boot manager, called by the bootstrapping code that resides in the boot sector. It checks its own integrity, checks the integrity of the Windows OS Loader, and then launches it. This cryptographic module also maintains FIPS 140-2 validation compliance (according to FIPS 140-2 PUB Implementation Guidance G.5) on Microsoft Windows 8, Microsoft Windows 8 Pro, and Microsoft Windows Server 2012 Datacenter.
