Does SECURE BOOT need to be disabled on the Nexus 5 before I can install UBPort's Ubuntu Phone image?

I thought I read something about Ubuntu/Canonical having a Secure Boot certificate, but I am not exactly sure what that means, and whether it extends to Ubuntu Touch devices (Or in this case, UBPorts).

    UBPorts is not an official supported Ubuntu system so offtopic. " Ubuntu/Canonical having a Secure Boot certificate" EVEN if it would include Touch it would NOT include UBPorts. They would need their own certificate – Rinzwind Jul 28 '17 at 7:58

The answer is "No".

You do not need to disable secure boot in order to install Ubuntu Touch on a Nexus 5.

Source: I just installed it, and it went fine.
