TCG/TPM

The TPM device drivers are already included in the mainline kernel and is split up into two parts:

    • the generic tpm driver module tpm.ko which handles all the common stuff
    • a vendor specific part tpm_<vendor>.ko

If you have a recent tpm module, it is quite likely that it follows the vendor independent TIS Protocol specified by the TCG, which should be preferred over the vendor modules. This module is called tpm_tis.ko
