What Are "Default Secure Boot Keys"? I Supposedly Installed Them in Bios?

JamesBacon 0 Reputation points

I reset my Bios to see the default settings for Secure Boot, and after reenabling it by setting the option to 'Windows UEFI Mode', I clicked the "Secure Boot Keys" option to see what was in there

I've never tinkered with keys like this and have no real intention of doing so, but I was met with a new option that said "Install the Default Secure Boot Keys"

I figured this was something spawned from resetting the Bios that I should do so Secure Boot would work; I clicked it and it didn't seem to do anything, but the option was gone the next time I went into the Bios

according to PowerShell and System Information, Secure Boot is enabled/working, but what were those "Install Default Secure Boot Keys" that it presented me with? is this added security or something that could be exploited easier by attackers?

what exactly did I "install" when clicking that option? my OS is Windows 10 22H2
