An Introduction to Trusted Platform Module

Trusted Platform Module is a hardware security module based on the open security specifications defined by Trusted Computing Group.
It is a microcontroller chip that can be used to provide better tamper-proof security in comparision to software for storing critical artifacts like passwords/credentials/private keys.. It also enables trust in the system by providing hardware based authentication (verify that system is what it claims to be) and attestation (reporting of system integrity and platform state by doing measurements and logging the boot events).

Hardware based security provides better assurance than software as they are more hard to be tampered with and has high applicability for critical applications like banking, etc.

Purpose of this talk is to share the basics about this hardware security chip (TPM) , its features and how can it be used for platform authentication and attestation.
