The trusted platform module (TPM) is a tamper-resistant component that provides roots of trust in secure computing and remote attestation frameworks. In this chapter, we briefly discuss the TPM architecture, operations and services. The discussion is then extended to the mobile trusted module (MTM)—to contrast and compare different approaches to implement a trusted platform architecture. This illustrates the vital role the ecosystem of a computing platform plays in the architectural design decisions regarding the root of trust in a trusted platforms.
