NORCROSS, GEORGIA: – AMI, a global leader in BIOS and UEFI firmware, server and remote management tools, data storage products and unique solutions based on the Linux® and Android™ operating systems, is pleased to announce support for TPM on Arm®-based systems running AMI’s flagship Aptio® V UEFI Firmware.

The Trusted Platform Module (TPM) is defined in the TPM Main specification created by the Trusted Computing Group, which enables trust in computing platforms. TPM can be used to measure the code that will be executed (known as measured boot), authenticate and secure platforms using passwords, certificates, digital signatures and/or encryption keys. Incorporating TPM provides an extra layer of security to ensure that important information is not prone to outside software attacks and/or unauthorized updates.

Previously, AMI only provided TPM support for x86 platforms. With the growing need to extend TPM support for additional platforms, AMI has added TPM support for Arm-based systems currently running AMI’s Aptio® V UEFI firmware. Users can expect the ability to better secure their systems and the information stored within them. The added TPM support for Arm-based systems includes features specifically for the Arm architecture such as TPM driver support within Arm® TrustZone® technology and Linux OS support. The Arm TrustZone TPM Firmware can be accessed by the BIOS and OS via the Command Response Buffer interface using Secure Monitor calls. Other generic features supported by TPM include cryptographic algorithms and measurement of SecureBoot variables.
