Trusted Platform Module 2.0 Specs Released

Trusted Platform Module (TPM) 2.0 library specifications have now been released for silicon makers, software developers, system builders and other members of IT ecosystem.

TPM 2.0, which is positioned as the critical next step for a more secure computing environment, aims to provide a secure root of trust to protect data in computers and mobile devices from digital and physical attacks, theft or loss.

The TPM 2.0 specification is designed with cryptographic agility to allow support for more algorithms in the future. It also offers the flexibility for industry implementations across a broad range of platforms including servers, desktops, embedded systems, mobile devices and network equipment.

The Trusted Computing Group (TCG) is also making available the PC Client Platform TPM Profile (PTP) specification, the first in a series of specifications to enable developers and manufacturers to design TPMs into their products. Specifications for additional platforms, including mobile devices and embedded systems, will follow.
