How to solve this problem?


All the best.

You did not tell us the app nor the command used to obtain that report.
I am not familiar with the posted info so without being able to repeat the test you used with the same tool it is difficult to guess what you are asking about.

Also, it would be nice if you were to be clear about exactly what you are asking. Those reading your data may draw differing conclusions so please ask a question instead of making an assumption that we will read the data and make the same conclusions you do.

Looking at the most recent data 10/30/2023 @ 14:23 & @ 15:00 it would seem there is no problem.

I mean how to activate DMA protection, memory encryption and so on.


All the best.

Ok, you have provided a hint that it started with the gnome settings–> privacy–> device security panel, but still did not state how you got the text report you posted above.

I personally do not know how to add anything to the default security configs the system provides, and those appear to me to be snapshot reports at boot time.

The link at the very bottom of your posted report tells about that tool and has a warning that it is incomplete and may be inaccurate at the very top.

According to that link it would seem your system meets the HSI:1 & HSI:2 levels . It would seem very unlikely that your system is at risk since the analysis says “any exploit would be difficult or impractical to use.”

Is your question related to using fwupdmgr?
