Trusted Platform Module 2.0

Connect to a TPM 2.0 device

In order to connect to a TPM 2.0 hardware or firmware device, the TSS2 software stack developed by Intel is needed. Because the official Ubuntu tpm2-tss package is rather outdated (e.g. since version 0.98 the TCTI interface to the TPM 2.0 resource manager has changed several times), strongSwan is currently based on a recent version directly drawn from the TPM2-TSS git repository https://github.com/01org/TPM2.0-TSS. Avoid any TCTI interface incompatibilities by fetching the latest tpm2-tools version from https://github.com/01org/tpm2.0-tools as well.

Build and install both the tpm2-tss stack and the tpm2.0-tools, start the tpm2-resourcemgr as a servicein the background and try to connect to the TPM 2.0 by listing e.g. the contents of the SHA-1 bank of PCR registers

tpm2_listpcrs -g 0x0004

TPM 2.0 Algorithm IDs

Hash Algorithms

0x0004 SHA-1
0x000B SHA-2_256
0x000C SHA-2_384
0x000D SHA-2_512

Currently available TPM 2.0 devices like the Infineon Optiga SLB 9670 VQ2.0 hardware TPM or Intel's PTT firmware TPM support the SHA-1 and SHA-2_256 algorithms.

Public Key Types

0x0001 RSA
0x0023 ECC

The RSA keys have a modulus size of 2048 bits and the ECC keys are based on the 256 bit NIST curve. |
