This talk will summarise the results of, and motivation for, my master’s thesis, which looked at the feasibility of a trusted computing framework built from entirely open components. Each component was required to be as inspect-able and verifiable as possible, and therefore be trusted by its users.

I will discuss in some detail a novel insertion attack against certain trusted computing frameworks built upon the Trusted Computing Group’s Trusted Computing Module. Our insertion attack makes use of a vulnerability that arises due to the architecture of the TPM itself, and was published at COMPSAC 2006 .
