Server

The purpose of the Server Working Group provides definitions, specifications, guidelines, and technical requirements as they pertain to the implementation of TCG technology in servers. The work group endeavors to produce material that allows compatibility with currently specified API’s and further enables current TCG infrastructures.

Servers are a fundamental element of the internet architecture, including public and private deployments, clouds, and data centers. Servers are central components of architectures and instantiations across the spectrum of uses, for example data processing, web serving, smart device applications, telecommunications, and the Internet of Things. As such, servers are a central component of the TCG Architecture and Trusted Computing ecosystem.
