Bug#649599: ITP: tpm-tools -- Management tools for the TPM hardware
 
Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Pierre Chifflier <pollux@debian.org>


* Package name : tpm-tools
Version : 1.3.7
Upstream Author : Kent Yoder <shpedoikal@gmail.com>
* URL : http://trousers.sourceforge.net/
* License : CPL (http://www.opensource.org/licenses/cpl1.0.php)
Programming Lang: C
Description : Management tools for the TPM hardware

tpm-tools is a group of tools to manage and utilize the Trusted Computing
Group's TPM hardware. TPM hardware can create, store and use RSA keys securely
(without ever being exposed in memory), verify a platform's software state
using cryptographic hashes and more. .
This package contains tools to allow the platform administrator the ability
to manage and diagnose the platform's TPM. Additionally, the package contains
commands to utilize some of the capabilities available in the TPM PKCS#11
interface implemented in the openCryptoki project.

Note that this is not really a new package: it was part of main, but was
orphaned, and removed due to the lack of maintainer and low popcon [1].
Since I'm now using this tool, and that it is required to make a TPM
work, I'm adopting it.

Pierre
