The Mobile Platform Work Group (MPWG) is a TCG Technical work group that develops specifications and reference documents. The Trusted Mobility Solutions Work Group (TMS) is a TCG Solutions work group that develops use cases, frameworks, and other reference documents. MPWG and TMS collaborate frequently to address the evolving challenges of the mobile device markets around the world.
The Mobile Platform and TMS work groups develop standards, implementation guidelines, use cases, and solutions that integrate core TCG technologies (including TPM, TNC, and SED) into mobile devices, telecom infrastructure, and enterprise networks. MPWG and TMS actively collaborate with other standards bodies to include requirements for TCG technologies in mobile and security and standards. MPWG was created when TCG was founded and TMS was created in 2011.
The Mobile Platform Work Group (MPWG) promotes the implementation of TCG technologies in mobile devices to support the wide variety of business models in consumer, enterprise, government, and academic environments. MPWG defines specifications and recommendations for trustworthy mobile devices that address the resource constraints of mobile devices (e.g., intermittent connectivity and limited battery life). MPWG collaborates closely with Global Platform and has co-developed recommended best practices for the use of Trusted Execution Environment (TEE) and other Global Platform technologies in trusted mobile devices.
The Trusted Mobility Solutions (TMS) Work Group promotes the adoption of TCG technologies within end-to-end solutions for mobile devices, telecom infrastructure, and enterprise networks. Mobile devices should include trustworthy device identity, strong authentication, device integrity, secure storage, and virtualization. In enterprise networks, mobile devices should also include policy-based access control, and application and data isolation mechanisms. TMS collaborates closely with Global Platform (secure mobile devices), European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI, network function virtualization and security), Alliance for Telecommunications Industry Solutions (ATIS, secure mobile devices), and other standards bodies.
TCG TPM 2.0 Mobile Reference Architecture: This specification defines an architecture for the implementation of a TPM 2.0 executing within a Protected Environment (on mobile platforms). It includes informative examples of several implementation approaches.
TCG TPM 2.0 Mobile Common Profile: This specification defines a profile of the TPM 2.0 Library Specification applicable to all mobile devices that conform to the TPM 2.0 Mobile Reference Architecture that is optimized for ease-of-implementation.
TCG TPM 2.0 Mobile Command Response Buffer Interface: This specification defines an interface between a TPM and software and is intended to work with a large number of hardware implementation options.
TCG Multiple Stakeholders Model: This reference document provides guidance to allow multiple stakeholders to coexist safely on mobile platform, coherent with the TCG TPM 2.0 Mobile Reference Architecture. This guidance is applicable to all mobile devices and may be useful for other computing devices as well.
TCG TPM 2.0 Mobile Specification Implementation Guidance: This reference document provides recommendations in implementation of the TPM 2.0 Mobile Specifications on a mobile platform for a target audience that includes designers, developers, and implementers.
TCG TMS Use Cases – Enterprise, Financial, and NFV: This reference document describes a broad range of Mobile Device ecosystem use cases and solutions requirements for enterprise mobility, mobile banking, and telecom network infrastructure to highlight the use of TCG core technologies (TPM, TNC, SED, etc.) for secure boot, device identity, device posture reporting, device storage, and device run-time integrity.
