There should be some indication of where to find tcsd prior to listing commands which invoke it. Generally, moving onto later steps without resolving problems implementing earlier ones is not a good strategy for following wiki instructions, yet this page currently requires this. [I would edit, but the page clearly needs much more significant editing to update it and I'm not in a position to do that.] --cfr (talk) 16:09, 3 November 2017 (UTC)

Uses and security implications

I'm still not sure what TPM is used for and whether or not it's a good idea to use it at all. It seems like TPM can be used to store LUKS private keys [1]. What's the point of that? It seems like Windows uses it so that a user only has to enter their user password both to unlock the partition and to login [2]. VeraCrypt (and previously TrueCrypt) is against the usage of TPM. [3]


This article doesn't reflect the current status of TPM2. It should tell users information about tpm2-toolsAUR --Jambon (talk) 04:01, 10 June 2018 (UTC)
