When a computer has a TPM module, BitLocker doesn't seem to require a password, which makes me really uncomfortable. Where's the key coming from? What's preventing someone from grabbing the key by booting that computer and using a bug in Windows log in system, USB, Thunderbolt, etc? Isn't asking for a password (that is used for key generation) at boot time much more secure?
