[MinnowBoard] MinnowBoard Turbot & mSATA self encrypted SSD & UEFI

Hallo for all,
   I am planning to plug in a mSATA self encrypted SSD to the board but 
I have some concerns:

1. As I understood a self encrypted SSD works without any setup and 
configuration but the user needs to protect the drive's access with a 
HDD password, so my question is:  does  UEFI support HDD password?

2. If yes, I want to have non-interactive boot, I mean the user will not 
have to enter the password on every boot, is it possible to modify UEFI 
firmware to bypass entering the password by hard-coding it in the UEFI 

3. Is it possible to lock the UEFI firmware's flashing in the 
MinnowBoard Turbot, so none can flash UEFI firmware without password?

Many thanks in advance

My best regards
