==dTPM (Discrete Trusted Platform Module)==
* TPM is a microcontroller that stores encryption keys, passwords and digital certificates
. * When TPM technology first hit the market, it was available only in discrete form. <br>That is, the silicon module was separate from other system elements and communicated with them via a dedicated hardware bus. * More recently, silicon manufacturers have begun to integrate TPM functionality into existing parts. * Advances in on processor technologies combined with the flexibility of the TPM protocols mean that it is possible to implement the TPM as an integrated solution or in firmware.
