Trusted Platform Module (TPM) and other protocols and components of trust in a computer or computer network

Trusted computing primarily refers to standards published by the Trusted Computing Group. TCG designs include the Trusted Platform Module (TPM), an add-on chip for PC-like system that is meant to be tamper-resistant and monitor the operation of the main processor. The TCG has also published designs that are not directly related to the TPM, such as the TNC protocol suite.
