TCG FIPS 140-2 Guidance for TPM 2.0

Date Published: February, 20, 2017

The TPM 2.0 FIPS guidance is provided as a supporting document for FIPS 140-2 evaluation of a TPM 2.0 product compliant with TPM 2.0 library level 0 version 1.16. The intended audience for this document includes TPM manufacturers, FIPS Cryptographic Module Validation Program Laboratories and FIPS Evaluators.

This document describes additional development constraints or library interpretation necessary for a successful FIPS evaluation. The intent is to highlight areas of the specification that may require specific attention when the device is in a FIPS approved mode. If the general specification is in compliance with FIPS no guidance is provided on the topic. The organization of the document starting with Section 5 follows the FIPS 140-2 convention and language. Each section contains a FIPS 140-2 Summary section which contains the text from the FIPS 140-2 Security Requirements Summary table for the specific requirement and security level.

This specification targets FIPS 140-2 level 1 or level 2.
