Android Lollipop introduces new features for boot security, with a specification for build-time signing and run-time verification of the boot, recovery, and system images, with the bootloader controlling verification of the boot/recovery images and Linux dm-verity enforcing the integrity of the system image. There are also facilities for enrolling user-supplied keys via Fastboot so that custom images may be verified.
