Trusted Platform Module

Trusted Platform Module (TPM) 2.0 provides platform authentication support for Windows 8 and above UEFI systems, without the need for Pre-Boot Authentication (PBA).

TPM is a platform that allows encryption to occur using keys within the TPM. TPM is also implemented in firmware for tablets.

Drive Encryption supports TPM 2.0 on Windows 8 and above UEFI systems for the TPM autoboot and cold-boot protection features.
