1.5.2. System Transitions out of Secure Boot

A BIOS upgrade or mainboard replacement can disable Secure Boot on systems where it was previously enabled. Additional hardware installed into a machine may have requirements incompatible with Secure Boot (user space DMA, SystemTap support, non-Red Hat kernel modules). This means Secure Boot cannot be a requirement for system functionality, and it is extremely unwise to make it a policy requirement.
