TCG member Infineon with industry partner Deutsche Telekom worked together earlier this month to present solutions for networked products at a German IT summit.
The solutions demonstrated included the use of the TPM to help product shared data that is typically communicated over networks in manufacturing and other organizations. Historically, both devices and networks have been insecure, leading to data theft and loss and potential attacks.
In the demo, TPM, which are security chips, identify computers, routers and machines and control access to them. TPMs enable secure authentication; once authentication is completed, information can be shared securely via networks.

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.
