There has been some other work in the area of getting out
notifications of "pre-OS" systems, e.g.,
http://www.dmtf.org/standards/documents/ASF/DSP0114.pdf

However, this work does *not* address security, other than
to discourage implementors from providing protocol-level
security and to instead rely on "deployment schemes and
firewalls" (!).

Could information delivered via DHCP be used to accomplish a
"kick start" of the secrets, similar to that in RFC 2786?
