So are you saying that most systems that have fully deployed trusted boot have been and/or can be made to incorrectly attest themselves as secure when they were actually booting compromised code? If so I'm interested to know how, when and why.

If not, in what way has it failed? I get the impression it's seldom fully implemented outside of DoD & Chrome OS and maybe a few others...
