What is Trusted Computing Group (TCG)?
The Trusted Computing Group (TCG) is an international industry standardization group, a consortium initiative initiated by leading companies in the computer industry to develop standards and implement Trusted Computing, which aims to solve security problems through hardware and software improvements and modifications.
TCG was the successor to the Trusted Computing Platform Appliance (TCPA) and was founded in 2003 by industry leaders including:
- Wave Systems Corp.
The original goal was to develop a Trusted Platform Module (TPM), which is an electronic module or an integrated circuit that can be integrated into computer systems to enable trusted computing functions standardized by the group.
The TCG is a non-profit organization, a working group made up of representatives from various companies in the industry. TCG drafts and publishes specifications and examples of the use of TCG technology. In this group, experts from different technology categories work together to develop the specifications in a neutral environment, and competitors can work together to develop interoperable and vendor-neutral technology.
