I see NW678 comes with coreboot + SeaBIOS?
Is it possible that you add tboot/vboot-like functionality of ‘heads’ payload to the firmware? This way a Nitrokey (which version/model for this?) may be used to check aspects of system integrity at each system boot.
Also which NIC IC is used in NW678? Is there any switch IC/Layer 2 switching/routing capability? I am surprised to find listed 6*Gigabit NIC as it has been a surge of 2.5 and 10Gb NIC soft-router systems similar to this emerging lately.
Is the 8th Gen CPU choice additionally intentional as only option? Why not more recent generation?
