Semi-automated Prototyping of a TPM v2 Software and Hardware Simulation Platform
Recently, the Trusted Computing Group (TCG) released first specification documents on the Trusted Platform Module (TPM) version 2 to the general public. This new TPM specification introduces a novel set of commands and concepts, which in part are fundamentally different to the features found on the previous generation of the Trusted Platform Module. At the time of this writing hardware prototypes and software simulators of the TPM v2 are not available to the general public. In this paper, we explore a semi-automated process to synthesize a TPM v2 software simulator from the published TCG specifications. To demonstrate the feasibility of our approach, we first assemble a prototype TPM v2 software simulator. Further, we show how this prototype TPM v2 software simulator can be hosted on an FPGA platform, which then subsequently can be used as an early hardware simulator for next generation TPMs.
