This PP describes a "Root of Trust" as a building block of the Trusted Computing Group (TCG) architecture. The TCG architecture is defined in the TCG Main Specification. The Root of Trust provides the foundation for "Transitive Trust" which makes and reports trust measurements of components of the TCG Architecture external to the Root of Trust. The Root of Trust is the combination of the Core Root of Trust for Measurement (CRTM), a connection to a Trusted Platform Module (TPM),a connection to the PC motherboard and a connection to the PC motherboard’s reset signal. One of the PPs in this document contains the Root of Trust and connections used as a building block for the TCG architecture; the other PP contains both the Root of Trust and connections and also a maintenance capability. The two PPs are defined as 1) a TBB and 2) a TBB with the addition of a maintenance package.
