As the use of Trusted Computing expands beyond PCs and other conventional information systems to embedded systems of all sorts, the Embedded Systems Work Group provides the expert guidance needed. Early successes include digital copiers and printers, kiosks, gaming systems, and industrial systems. More recent application domains include automotive, network equipment, and IoT.
Embedded systems vary widely but they all need good security. Therefore, each embedded systems domain (automotive, hard copy, etc.) must be analyzed to determine which Trusted Computing technologies apply. The Embedded Systems Work Group forms a Sub Group including domain experts (e.g., printer experts) to identify threats, appropriate countermeasures, and special challenges. Domain-specific guidance is published and special challenges are addressed.

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.
