Trusted platform modules (TPMs) specification is highly complex and therefore the deployment of TPM –based security solutions is equally complicated and difficult; although they can provide a wide range of security functionalities. In order to make TPM technology available to system engineers without their needing to have in-depth knowledge of trusted computing specifications we propose, in this paper, to develop an approach using security patterns to specify TPM-based security solutions. Ideally suited to producing precise specifications of TPM –based solutions for certain security goals are the refined notions of security patterns developed in the SERENITY research project.
