The rush to connect ever more devices with sensitive data and often insecure connections has created an exponential increase in associated security issues. Every day brings new reports of attacks, hacks, malware and data breaches. Fortunately, there are some widely vetted ways to help prevent many of these incidents: the TPM, or Trusted Platform Module, which can be implemented now in a number of ways.
This webcast, with TCG TPM experts Lee Wilson, Security Innovation and Monty Wiseman, GE, will review basic trust concepts, key TPM attributes and functions, the new library specification including newly added features, and how the TPM is used in specific applications. The implementation of the TPM in mobile, embedded and IoT devices will be addressed.
The session also will include a Q&A with attendees, so come prepared with your TPM questions.
