What is a TPM?
A TPM (Trusted Platform Module) is a processor that provides basic security-related functions, primarily related to the creation or secure storage of platform measurements, certificates, and encryption keys. OEMs may install a TPM on a computer’s mainboard as a discrete component, or it can be implemented as a firmware-based solution on devices that include ARM’s Trusted Zone or Intel’s Platform Trust Technology (PTT). Computers with a TPM can secure data in a way that requires the original TPM to unseal or decrypt them.
