What is a TPM?

A TPM is a microchip designed to provide basic security-related functions, primarily involving encryption keys. The TPM is usually installed on the motherboard of a computer, and communicates with the rest of the system by using a hardware bus.

Computers that incorporate a TPM have the ability to create cryptographic keys and encrypt them so that they can be decrypted only by the TPM. This process, often called “wrapping” or “binding” a key, can help protect the key from disclosure. Each TPM has a master wrapping key, called the Storage Root Key (SRK), which is stored within the TPM itself. The private portion of a key created in a TPM is never exposed to any other component, software, process, or person.

Computers that incorporate a TPM can also create a key that has not only been wrapped, but is also tied to specific hardware or software conditions. This is called “sealing” a key. When a sealed key is first created, the TPM records a snapshot of configuration values and file hashes. A sealed key is only “unsealed” or released when those current system values match the ones in the snapshot. BitLocker uses sealed keys to detect attacks against the integrity of the Windows operating system.

With a TPM, private portions of key pairs are kept separated from the memory controlled by the operating system. Because the TPM uses its own internal firmware and logic circuits for processing instructions, it does not rely upon the operating system and is not exposed to external software vulnerabilities.

For more details on using TPM with Microsoft’s BitLocker drive encryption, please see this Microsoft webpage. Note that BitLocker is available only with Windows 7 Ultimate, Windows 8 Pro and Windows 10 Pro editions of Windows.

“Excellent products and service to match.”

“Ive ordered several times from Quiet PC and the experience is always first class. The website is not flashy, but runs smoothly and is exceptionally easy to navigate. Plenty of payment options available and great technical product descriptions- great range of products too. Delivery is swift and well packaged. I had to return an item- I called Quiet PC and got straight through to a representative who was most helpful. I posted the item first class at 15:00 and was refunded the following day, cant argue with that. The only minor thing is price, slightly more expensive than other sites and postage is not cheap- but you get what you pay for and Quiet PC thoroughly deserve all 5 stars.”
