NAME

tpm2_getpubek(1) - Generate TCG profile compliant endorsement key.  

SYNOPSIS

tpm2_getpubek [OPTIONS]  

DESCRIPTION

tpm2_getpubek(1) - Generate TCG profile compliant endorsement key(endorsement hierarchy primary object), make it persistent with give ek handle, and return public EK, if any passwd option is missing, assume NULL.

Refer to: <http://www.trustedcomputinggroup.org/files/static_page_files/7CAA5687-1A4B-B294-D04080D058E86C5F>  

OPTIONS

-e, -endorse-passwd=ENDORSE_PASSWORD: Specifies current endorsement password, defaults to NULL. Passwords should follow the "password formatting standards, see section"Password Formatting“.
-o, -owner-passwd=OWNER_PASSWORD Specifies the current owner password, defaults to NULL. Same formatting as the endorse password value or -e option.
-P, -eKPasswd=EK_PASSWORD Specifies the EK password when created, defaults to NULL. Same formatting as the endorse password value or -e option.
-H, -handle=HANDLE: specifies the handle used to make EK persistent (hex).
-g, -alg=ALGORITHM: specifies the algorithm type of EK. See section "Supported Public Object Algorithms" for a list of supported object algorithms. See section "Algorithm Specifiers" on how to specify an algorithm argument.
-f, -file=FILE: specifies the file used to save the public portion of EK. This will be a binary data structure corresponding to the TPM2B_PUBLIC struct in the specification.
-S, -input-session-handle=SESSION: Optional Input session handle from a policy session for authorization.
 

COMMON OPTIONS

This collection of options are common to many programs and provide information that many users may expect.

-h, -help: Display the tools manpage. This requires the manpages to be installed or on MANPATH, See man(1) for more details.
-v, -version: Display version information for this tool, supported tctis and exit.
-V, -verbose: Increase the information that the tool prints to the console during its execution. When using this option the file and line number are printed.
-Q, -quiet: Silence normal tool output to stdout.
-Z, -enable-errata: Enable the application of errata fixups. Useful if an errata fixup needs to be applied to commands sent to the TPM. # TCTI ENVIRONMENT

This collection of environment variables that may be used to configure the various TCTI modules available.

The values passed through these variables can be overridden on a per-command basis using the available command line options, see the TCTI_OPTIONS section.

The variables respected depend on how the software was configured.

TPM2TOOLS_TCTI_NAME: Select the TCTI used for communication with the next component down the TSS stack. In most configurations this will be the TPM but it could be a simulator or proxy. The current known TCTIs are:
tabrmd - The new resource manager, called tabrmd (https://github.com/01org/tpm2-abrmd).
socket - Typically used with the old resource manager, or talking directly to a simulator.
device - Used when talking directly to a TPM device file.
TPM2TOOLS_DEVICE_FILE: When using the device TCTI, specify the TPM device file. The default is "/dev/tpm0".

Note: Using the tpm directly requires the users to ensure that concurrent access does not occur and that they manage the tpm resources. These tasks are usually managed by a resource manager. Linux 4.12 and greater supports an in kernel resource manager at "/dev/tpmrm", typically "/dev/tpmrm0".

TPM2TOOLS_SOCKET_ADDRESS: When using the socket TCTI, specify the domain name or IP address used. The default is 127.0.0.1.
TPM2TOOLS_SOCKET_PORT: When using the socket TCTI, specify the port number used. The default is 2321.
 

TCTI OPTIONS

This collection of options are used to configure the varous TCTI modules available. They override any environment variables.

-T, -tcti=TCTI_NAME[:TCTI_OPTIONS]: Select the TCTI used for communication with the next component down the TSS stack. In most configurations this will be the resource manager: tabrmd (https://github.com/01org/tpm2-abrmd) Optionally, tcti specific options can appended to TCTI_NAME by appending a : to TCTI_NAME.
For the device TCTI, the TPM device file for use by the device TCTI can be specified. The default is /dev/tpm0. Example: -T device:/dev/tpm0
For the socket TCTI, the domain name or IP address and port number used by the socket can be specified. The default are 127.0.0.1 and 2321. Example: -T socket:127.0.0.1:2321
For the abrmd TCTI, it takes no options. Example: -T abrmd
 

Supported Public Object Algorithms

Supported public object algorithms are:

0x1 or rsa for TPM_ALG_RSA (default).
0x8 or keyedhash for TPM_ALG_KEYEDHASH.
0x23 or ecc for TPM_ALG_ECC.
0x25 or symcipher for TPM_ALG_SYMCIPHER.

NOTE: Your TPM may not support all algorithms.  

Algorithm Specfiers

Options that take algorithms support "nice-names". Nice names, like sha1 can be used in place of the raw hex for sha1: 0x4. The nice names are converted by stripping the leading TPM_ALG_ from the Algorithm Name field and converting it to lower case. For instance TPM_ALG_SHA3_256 becomes sha3_256.

The algorithms can be found at: <https://trustedcomputinggroup.org/wp-content/uploads/TCG_Algorithm_Registry_Rev_1.24.pdf>  

EXAMPLES


tpm2_getpubek -e abc123 -o abc123 -P passwd -H 0x81010001 -g rsa -f ek.pub
