Checksum? Hash?

A quick look suggests that it is easy to find the version number of your UEFI and also to install an update.

I haven't yet located a tool to get a checksum or hash from the manufacturer to confirm that the firmware has not been corrupted or modified.

Should this not be part of any regular virus scan?

Perhaps it is and I haven't noticed.
