I was reading Mary Jo Foley's quick little update on the Trusted Platform Module (TPM) capabilities in Vista. – want to know more about it? If so – read on.
TPM technology is being realized as a part of the NGSCB in the next versions of both the client and the server. Earlier this year we talked about this at the WinHec and how this would be implemented in the Longhorn wave. So for those of you who want deeper, technical information on TPM; there is a nice little whitepaper that talks about the Design, Interaction, and Implementation of TPM in our products. I promise – it is a really good read!
