Trusted Computing Group (TCG) Standards

What is Trusted Computing Group (TCG) Standards?

The Trusted Computing Group (TCG) is an industry consortium that was formed in 2003 to promote the adoption of Trusted Computing technology and to develop standards and protocols for implementing Trusted Computing. The TCG is made up of over 150 member companies from a variety of industries, including computer hardware and software, telecommunications, and financial services.

The TCG has developed a set of standards and protocols known as the Trusted Computing Group (TCG) standards, which define the hardware and software components that are required to implement Trusted Computing. These standards specify the use of a Trusted Platform Module (TPM), which is a dedicated microcontroller that is built into a computing device and is responsible for implementing the Trusted Computing functions.

The TCG standards also define the interface between the TPM and the operating system, and they specify the protocols and algorithms that are used for secure communication and data protection. The TCG standards are designed to be flexible and extensible, and they are continually being updated and revised to reflect the latest developments in Trusted Computing technology.

The TCG also provides tools and resources to help developers implement Trusted Computing in their products, and it works with industry partners and organizations to promote the adoption of Trusted Computing. The TCG is headquartered in San Francisco, California, and it has offices around the world.
