Subject: [gentoo-security] Why we need TPM in Linux kernel?
Date: Tue, 22 Nov 2005 23:16:32

I'm worried with the so-called "Treacherous Computing" appearance in
recent Linux kernels. I have read about it on EFF & GNU portals and
can't see any benefits for Free Society by supporting this technology.
Also it looks like this TPM drivers were written by IBM employees. I
suspect IBM pushed this into kernel. I understand what this drivers come
in source form under GPL, anybody can just don't compile them in, but
again what benefits this drivers can bring for casual Linux user?
