The Mobile Platform Work Group works on the adoption of TCG concepts for mobile devices to enable different business models in market environment of open terminal platform. The work group enhances TCG as needed to address specific features of mobile devices like their connectivity and limited capability as analyzed through various usage scenarios that may demonstrate added value of mobile devices in TCG.
The Trusted Computing Group’s Mobile Phone Use Cases consider a broad range of usage scenarios where TCG technology, specifically the Mobile Trusted Module (MTM) security technology deemed most appropriate for mobile devices and similar wireless handheld systems with small footprints which require an optimized trusted module, can be applied in the mobile embedded devices context and ecosystem.
What is the status of TCG’s efforts on the Mobile Trusted Module (MTM)? Is the MTM v1.0 specification still valid for use today? What has been done in the developer or phone community to use the specification? What were the use cases for this?
This document is an industry specification that adapts existing TCG technology for use in a mobile phone taking into account its embedded system nature. This specification also defines new commands and structures for enabling applications that the technology must enable in a mobile phone context.
The TCG specifications define a Trusted Platform Module (TPM) and its use in various computing platforms. The “TCG Mobile Trusted Module Specification” is a specification that defines the necessary interface for implementing Mobile Trusted Modules. The “TCG Mobile Reference Architecture Specification” defines ways of instantiating and using Mobile Trusted Modules in a trusted mobile platform. This specification defines an abstraction layer to the trusted components of a mobile platform.
1. This is an informative document, intended to catalogue the normative requirements of the "TCG Mobile Reference Architecture." Please note that in case of any discrepancies, the Mobile Reference Architecture specification is definitive, and overrides the information contained herein.
The TCG mobile phone specifications (Mobile Trusted Module (MTM) specifications) enable trusted computing on mobile platforms. The specifications have been developed with the particular needs and limitations associated with mobile devices in mind. The mobile specification work started with requirements and use case collections.
