Bruce Schneier has an
article on News.com
looking at a document, published by the Trusted
Computing Group, on how systems with a Trusted Platform Module should be
implemented. He likes that the document emphasizes the security
applications, and directs implementers away from coercive implementations
or those which hinder interoperability. "But there's something fishy
going on. Microsoft is doing its best to stall the document, and to ensure
that it doesn't apply to Vista (formerly known as Longhorn), Microsoft's
next-generation operating system.

on TPM chips and how they will be supported under Linux).
