This in turn makes it easier to design a system on which multiple applications appear to have unfettered access to a TPM. 0 family of TPMs. PCR values typically represent the state of the machine, with lower-numbered PCRs representing the process of booting of the system and higher-numbered ones representing events after the kernel has booted. Both keys and data can be locked to certain PCRs having particular values, an action called sealing. But if keys or data are locked to a PCR that represents the BIOS of a system, it’s tricky to upgrade the BIOS.
Such an upgrade prevented the TPM from being able to unseal the KEK. Although the random-number backup sufficed for recovery in this case, Microsoft decided it would make more sense for an administrator doing the BIOS upgrade, who already had access to the decrypted data, to have a means to temporarily leave the fulldisk encryption key in the clear while the BIOS upgrade was performed and then reseal it to the TPM’s new PCR values after the BIOS upgrade. It is important to realize that making things easy for the user at a small cost to security (leaving the drive open for the brief time while a BIOS upgrade was taking place) is usually a good tradeoff.
Secure generation of keys: Having a hardware random-number generator is a big advantage when creating keys. A number of security solutions have been broken due to poor key generation. • Secure storage of keys: Keeping good keys secure, particularly from software attacks, is a big advantage that the TPM design brings to a device. • NVRAM storage: When an IT organization acquires a new device, it often wipes the hard disk and rewrites the disk with the organization’s standard load. Having NVRAM allows a TPM to maintain a certificate store.
