Trusted Computing for the Java(tm) Platform  

About IAIK/OpenTC TCcert Tool

Trusted Computing, as specified by the Trusted Computing Group (TCG,, comprises multiple layers of hard- and software. While the hardware primarily consists of the Trusted Platform Module (TPM), there are multiple support software components required.

There are potential security benefits in connecting many trusted computing enabled platforms, however, there is a need to standardize security credentials to enable easy automated processing and the building of a trusted computing aware public key infrastructure (PKI).

IAIK/OpenTC TCcert is a software tool which enables one to create special types of certificates, as specified by the Trusted Computing Group.

It is developed and maintained at the Institute for Applied Information Processing and Communication (Institut für Angewandte Informationsverarbeitung und Kommunikation, IAIK, at Graz University of Technology (

Development of IAIK/OpenTC TCcert is supported by the European Commission as part of the OpenTC project (Ref. Nr. 027635).
