Currenty grub does not offer native implementation for EFI secure
boot. Both distros you mention should carry out-of-tree patches that
enable it. If it does not work, please report it to your distribution.

It definitely should work in openSUSE 12.3 and above, EFI
implementation quirks withstanding.
