TPM device configuration

TPM devicesEdit

  • Option: TCG_TPM
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off/module) TPM Hardware Support
    • depends on EXPERIMENTAL
      If you have a TPM security chip in your system, which implements the Trusted Computing Group's specification, say Yes and it will be accessible from within Linux. For more information see <http://www.trustedcomputinggroup.org>. An implementation of the Trusted Software Stack (TSS), the userspace enablement piece of the specification, can be obtained at: <http://sourceforge.net/projects/trousers>. To compile this driver as a module, choose M here; the module will be called tpm. If unsure, say N. Note: For more TPM drivers enable CONFIG_PNP, CONFIG_ACPI and CONFIG_PNPACPI.


  • Option: TCG_NSC
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off/module) National Semiconductor TPM Interface
    • depends on TCG_TPM
      If you have a TPM security chip from National Semicondutor say Yes and it will be accessible from within Linux. To compile this driver as a module, choose M here; the module will be called tpm_nsc.


  • Option: TCG_ATMEL
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off/module) Atmel TPM Interface
    • depends on TCG_TPM
      If you have a TPM security chip from Atmel say Yes and it will be accessible from within Linux. To compile this driver as a module, choose M here; the module will be called tpm_atmel.


  • Option: TCG_INFINEON
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off/module) Infineon Technologies TPM Interface
    • depends on TCG_TPM && PNPACPI
      If you have a TPM security chip from Infineon Technologies (either SLD 9630 TT 1.1 or SLB 9635 TT 1.2) say Yes and it will be accessible from within Linux. To compile this driver as a module, choose M here; the module will be called tpm_infineon. Further information on this driver and the supported hardware can be found at http://www.prosec.rub.de/tpm
