Hello TPM friends,

after more than 18 months of work, compiling, testing, tears, blood...

Now you find the dto in the newest raspbian image, per default.

To activate the TPM on your Raspberry Pi you need only these simple commands:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
sudo nano /boot/config.txt

// and activate SPI with uncomment

// and load the TPM device tree overlay with

// save the config.txt

sudo reboot

// after the reboot

ls /dev/tpm0

// if you own a LetsTrust-TPM and plug it in the right way, you will get /dev/tpm0 in yellow letters

Thanks to all supportes :-)

Bye for now!



Hello and welcome!

I´m really proud to introduce the new way to get your LetsTrust-TPM working with your Raspberry Pi!

Till the next Stretch update from the RasPi Foundation the way will be:

Step one:
Open a (whatever) term on your Pi.

Step two:
Run a "sudo rpi-update"

Step three:
Open the /boot/config.txt with "sudo nano /boot/config.txt"
and activate SPI with uncomment
and load the TPM device tree overlay with

Step four:
Plug your LetsTrust-TPM onto the right pins and reboot your Raspberry Pi

Step five:
Open a (whatever) term on your Pi and type "ls /dev/tpm0" and
/dev/tpm0 will appear in yellow letters!

Step six:
Be happy about your success!

Huge thanks to a friend of mine an ex colleague: Peter Hüwe.
He found this smart solution [1] for the Pull Request issues [2].

Thank you Phil Elwell for evaluation, identifying problems and finally merging the PR [3]

Bye for now!

Hallo zusammen,

Monate ohne neue Blog-Postings, bitte entschuldigt, ich hatte einfach zu viel zu tun./

So, jetzt habe ich das letzte Raspbian-Image "Stretch" mit dem TPM-SPI-Treiber gepatcht, dieses findest du auf diesem LINK..

In diesem Image ist das eltt2-Tool NICHT vorkompiliert.

Um dies zu ändern:

git clone
cd eltt2
sudo ./eltt2 -g
sudo ./eltt2 -h

Das wars für heute!
