(VIRTUAL) Securing TPM Secrets in the Datacenter - Paul Moore, Microsoft & Joy Latten, Cisco

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Feedback form is now closed.
This talk will focus on how existing technologies such as UEFI Secure Boot, the UEFI shim bootloader, and TPM2 can be combined to provide a secure secret storage such that only authorized OSes are able to access the secrets. Further, the approach described in this presentation has been designed to function across lights-out firmware, bootloader, and system updates, making this solution appealing for datacenter systems with limited physical access. Additional discussion points will include considerations for unrestricted developer systems and reprovisioning the TPM2 in deployed systems. The first half of this presentation will discuss the ideas behind the design of our solution, including why a different approach was necessary. The second half of this presentation will describe our experience implementing this design and the lessons we learned along the way.
