Storage Interface Interactions Specification Summary
January 2009

The Storage Work Group of the Trusted Computing Group has several specifications. These are written in an interface-agnostic manner for trusted peripherals containing any storage medium.
The Storage Interface Interactions specification provides the ‘glue’ between these high-level specifications and the real-world host interfaces.

The Storage Interface Interactions specification:

1) maps interface-specific resets to trusted peripheral resets;
2) maps trusted peripheral errors to interface-specific error reporting mechanisms;
3) describes interface-specific command protocols which deliver commands to trusted
peripherals and return data to the host; and
4) describes other interface-specific interactions with a trusted peripheral.
