Is there a way to change the EFI keys programatically?
There shouldn't be a way of doing this programatically, since it undermines the whole point of the secure boot system. The goal of the system is to make sure that you can't run unsigned code without user intervention. If you could bypass the secure boot without user intervention, then malicious code could do exactly the same thing and the system would be worthless for preventing boot sector malware. The goal of all these open source approaches to secure boot is to let open source take advantage of the real benefits of the system.
