Pandemic Update to "More Hardware: LetsTrust-TPM2Go"

Hello and welcome back,

Update from 2021.02.08:

I'm not really happy about the next lines but I want to be honest to all of you and it was more personal as all the other posts:

Since the last few months we have had a hard lockdown depend on the pandemic situation in Bavaria/Germany. My seven years old daughter stays at home for over seven weeks, schools are closed, see some friends its not possible (family reasons).

I'll spend more time with my Family the next weeks.



What happens to the LetsTrust-TPM2Go:

The Project was stopped. New preorders were cancelled and all orders were unwound.

The Reason: I don't want to sell and deliver hardware for that I could not guarantee 100% functionality.

A recommendation!

Hello and welcome,

today I'll want to introduce Johannes Holland, a really nice guy, MSc, and TPM addicted.
I know Johannes personally and he also tested and validated the first revision of the LetsTrust-Arduino adapter, for which I am very grateful to this day!

And you all know Peter Huewe? He was the driver behind this.

At the next Open Source Summit, Johannes and Peter will speak over the TSS FAPI and the abstract gives great hope for an informative session.

The abstract:
Nowadays, virtually all consumer PCs/laptops contain a TPM2.0 security chip, the Trusted Platform Module. Moreover, the TPM finds its way into more and more modern embedded devices. But what is the TPM and how can we use it on Linux? The TPM has the potential to enhance security in a variety of use cases ranging from SSH, VPN, disk encryption, and more. Since it is so powerful, it may be hard to use at times. But do not fret - the tpm2-software project, especially its new TPM Software Stack (TSS) Feature API (FAPI) library, enables anyone to use the TPM. This talk gives an introduction on how to use the TPM the easy way, using recent contributions to the TPM ecosystem like the TSS FAPI. After a brief overview of the involved hard- and software, this talk will dive into how to get started with the TPM and show how it can be used to perform fundamental security tasks. Afterwards, recent additions like the TPM PKCS11 middleware and the OpenSSL engine will be presented - enabling TPM integration, perhaps without writing a single line of code. In the end, the TPM open source ecosystem will be discussed, and how to become part of it. Want to start hacking? We got you.
