+Measured Boot
+U-Boot can perform a measured boot, the process of hashing various components
+of the boot process, extending the results in the TPM and logging the
+component's measurement in memory for the operating system to consume.
+* A hardware TPM 2.0 supported by the U-Boot drivers
+* Device-tree configuration of the TPM device to specify the memory area
+  for event logging. The TPM device node must either contain a phandle to
+  a reserved memory region or "linux,sml-base" and "linux,sml-size"
+  indicating the address and size of the memory region. An example can be
+  found in arch/sandbox/dts/test.dts
+* The operating system must also be configured to use the memory regions
+  specified in the U-Boot device-tree in order to make use of the event
+  log.
