Firmware Security
  • The security provided to an information processing system by firmware. Firmware is software that is permanently stored in a hardware device which allows reading but not writing or modifying. The most common device for firmware is read only memory. Alternately, firmware are computer programs recorded in a permanent or semipermanent physical medium incorporated in the information processing system. (Source: Panel of Experts, July 1994).
