Almost all our laptops, and many servers, feature a TPM today. The TPM doesn't have the best reputation in the community because it could be used to lock down platforms or do nasty things with DRM. Under normal conditions on PCs, the TPM is controlled by the system owner and could actually be useful for almost anything involving crypto. Unfortunately the integration of the TPM in the OS is essentially non-existent. The introduction of the TPM2.0 standard complicates matters, because we now have two different devices with different APIs.

The goal of this project would be to identify reasonable use cases for the TPM, evaluate exisiting projects, and create ways how to integrate it into various workflows in openSUSE.
