PC Client

The PC Client Work Group provides common functionality, interfaces, and a minimum set of security and privacy requirements for PC client that use TCG components to establish their root of trust. This work group serves an advisory role by providing information to the TPM Work Group and other TCG Work Groups on possible architectural and design issues that may impact their work. This work group's deliverables do not address any functionality, interface (except those interfaces between the OS and the pre-OS environment), security or privacy issues for the Operating System(s) that are hosted by the platform.
