Trusted platform modules (TPMs) can provide a variety of security functionalities. However, the TPM specification is highly complex and the deployment of TPM-based solutions is a difficult and delicate task. In this paper we propose the use of security patterns to specify TPM-based security solutions. The refined notion of security patterns developed in the SERENITY research project allows us to produce precise specifications of TPM-based solutions for particular security goals. This approach makes TPM technology available to system engineers without in-depth knowledge of trusted computing specifications.
