At last month’s RSA Conference, mobile security was, to nobody’s surprise, a big topic. During the TCG session, long-time TCG member Nokia showed its Nokia Lumia 920 mobile device which incorporates Trusted Computing technology (Windows Phone 8 secure boot).
The demonstration showed how the Nokia Lumia secure boot sequence is achieved and how this supports device integrity and provides a trustworthy foundation for supporting trusted applications and secure services.
As many might now know, Windows 8 and its brethren Windows Server provide a number of capabilities based on and using Trusted Computing technologies. For example, secure boot and the TPM work together to ensure platform integrity.

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.
