There are four primary use cases for implementing trusted computing with a Trusted Platform Module (TPM), the cryptographic module standardized by the Trusted Computing Group. This blog will give a brief overview of those use cases, which can be combined to create more complex and powerful solutions.
There are two worlds of computer security - high-end systems and then everything else. Both high- and low-end systems typically employ “top-down” defenses to harden their attack surfaces. These are “software-only” security techniques.

Over the past year, there have been a rush of Internet of Things (IoT) cyber-attacks, the most famous of which was the IoT Denial of Service attack on Dyn that disrupted internet traffic for a day. As more IoT devices are deployed, the frequency of serious cyber-attacks will only increase, and increase quickly. Many consumer IoT manufacturers are under intense schedule and cost pressures where a delay to add cyber security could be the difference between success and failure. Industrial IoT companies have a different problem, where long product lifecycles make security difficult to manage and almost impossible to retroactively deploy.
