Daniel Smith began using Linux in 1997, building Linux-based endpoint security solutions in 2004 and contributing to the Xen-based OpenXT virtualization platform in 2014. He developed the first open-source implementation of Intel TXT forward sealing, enabling unattended OTA update of Trusted/Measured Boot products based on OpenXT. In 2018, he founded the TrenchBoot project to make hardware-assisted boot integrity more accessible to operating system and hypervisor developers. Apertus Solutions helps clients design securable commercial solutions with upstream-first open source foundations, high-assurance user workflows, disaggregated software and hardware roots of trust, including TPM 2.0, Intel TXT and AMD SKINIT.
