Any tool (like CHIPSEC) to verify the security of Intel XEON Skylake platform?

I wanted to try the tool "chipsec" on an Intel Purley platform (XEON 8176 and Lewisburg PCH).

Note: the chipsec tool is mentioned in Intel doc # 557274 Platform Secure Configuration Specification for Skylake Platforms.

Description of the tool:

CHIPSEC is a framework for analyzing the security of PC platforms including hardware, system firmware (BIOS/UEFI), and platform components. It includes a security test suite, tools for accessing various low level interfaces, and forensic capabilities. It can be run on Windows, Linux, Mac OS X and UEFI shell.

The tool is available from: https://github.com/chipsec/chipsec.git

The tool detects several Intel CPU+PCH chipset combinations, but not the Skylake Server or PCH Lewisburg.

Information about the CPU: Intel® Xeon® Platinum 8176 Processor (38.5M Cache, 2.10 GHz) Product Specifications

CPU stepping used: H0

The PCH used: Lewisburg 1G, stepping B1

EDS: Intel® C620 Series Chipset Platform Controller Hub, Document Number: 547817

Is there any plan to add support for this non-embedded platform into ChipSec?

Or is there any other tool that perform the same kind of security verification?
