TPM and BitLocker

Hello everyone,

usually once a year someone comes around the corner and shouts into the ether of the net: LOOK AT ME! I HAVE HACKED A TPM!

Well, during this time I always get a lot of emails/messages or direct questions in the corridor "how can that be?" "aren't TPMs so good after all...?" "ahh, just security bohei and nothing behind it"

There are enough articles out there that explain this, so I won't start here, but you can find a link to one here: This article sums it up very well, so Thanks to Chris Fenner!

tl:dr -> OS/OEMs don't want to, they could if they wanted to. But they don't want to increase security.

But please read the article :-)

So I'm out,
