"17. Mandatory. On non-ARM systems, the platform MUST implement the
ability for a physically present user to select between two Secure Boot
modes in firmware setup: "Custom" and "Standard". Custom Mode allows for
more flexibility as specified in the following:

a. It shall be possible for a physically present user to use the Custom
Mode firmware setup option to modify the contents of the Secure Boot
signature databases and the PK. This may be implemented by simply
providing the option to clear all Secure Boot databases (PK, KEK, db,
dbx), which puts the system into setup mode."
