TCG TPM 2.0 Library Specification Now Available from ISO and the IEC
Trusted Computing Group has long worked around the world to get input on its many specifications, including the widely implemented TPM specifications, and to get international standards support for its specifications.
Earlier versions of the TPM were approved by the International Organization for Standardization, or ISO, and the International Electrotechnical Commission, or IEC.
The new TPM 2.0 Library Specification was submitted in 2014 to the ISO/IEC JTC 1* following the JTC 1 Publicly Available Specification (PAS) Submission process.
As of Dec. 15, 2015, that specification is now available as ISO/IEC 11889:2015. It can be downloaded from the ISO site.
The TPM 2.0 Library Specification enables modern security and privacy protection, which combines the strengths of hardware and software-based security technologies. Its implementation in computing devices safeguards cryptographic keys; prevents private keys from being exported; shields PIN values used for authentication; and records and anonymously reports on software loaded during the boot process to protect against malware and attacks. As such, it will become an essential component of any comprehensive security strategy.
Given the evolution of computing, the TPM 2.0 Library Specification was developed as a set of commands that enable the TPM to be used in a variety of systems and devices, from PCs, servers and networking gear to embedded systems and the Internet of Things.

Membership in the Trusted Computing Group is your key to participating with fellow industry stakeholders in the quest to develop and promote trusted computing technologies.
Standards-based Trusted Computing technologies developed by TCG members now are deployed in enterprise systems, storage systems, networks, embedded systems, and mobile devices and can help secure cloud computing and virtualized systems.
Trusted Computing Group announced that its TPM 2.0 (Trusted Platform Module) Library Specification was approved as a formal international standard under ISO/IEC (the International Organization for Standardization and the International Electrotechnical Commission). TCG has 90+ specifications and guidance documents to help build a trusted computing environment.
