Use Trusted Computing to Make PCs Safer, More Secure, and More Reliable Every year, computer security threats become more severe. Software alone can no longer adequately defend against them: what’s needed is secure hardware. The Trusted Platform Module (TPM) makes that possible by providing a complete, open industry standard for implementing trusted computing hardware subsystems in PCs. Already available from virtually every leading PC manufacturer, TPM gives software professionals powerful new ways to protect their customers. Now, there’s a start-to-finish guide for every software professional and security specialist who wants to utilize this breakthrough security technology. Authored by innovators who helped create TPM and implement its leading-edge products, this practical book covers all facets of TPM technology: what it can achieve, how it works, and how to write applications for it. The authors offer deep, real-world insights into both TPM and the Trusted Computing Group (TCG) Software Stack. Then, to demonstrate how TPM can solve many of today’s most challenging security problems, they present four start-to-finish case studies, each with extensive C-based code examples. Coverage includes What services and capabilities are provided by TPMs TPM device drivers: solutions for code running in BIOS, TSS stacks for new operating systems, and memory-constrained environments Using TPM to enhance the security of a PC’s boot sequence Key management, in depth: key creation, storage, loading, migration, use, symmetric keys, and much more Linking PKCS#11 and TSS stacks to support applications with middleware services What you need to know about TPM and privacy--including how to avoid privacy problems Moving from TSS 1.1 to the new TSS 1.2 standard TPM and TSS command references and a complete function library

Trusted Platform Modules (TPMs) are small, inexpensive chips which provide a limited set of security functions. They are most commonly found as a motherboard component in laptops and desktops aimed at the corporate or government markets, but can also be found in many consumer-grade machines and servers or purchased as independent components. This book describes the primary uses for TPMs and practical considerations such as: when TPMs can and should be used, when they shouldn't be used, what advantages they provide and how to benefit from them. Topics covered include: * When to use a TPM * TPM concepts and functionality * Programming introduction * Provisioning: getting the TPM ready to use * First steps: TPM keys, machine authentication, data protection, attestation * Other TPM features * Software and specifications * Troubleshooting * Appendices contain basic cryptographic concepts, command equivalence, requirements charts and complete code samples.

Trusting a computer for a security-sensitive task (such as checking email or banking online) requires the user to know something about the computer's state. We examine research on securely capturing a computer's state, and consider the utility of this information both for improving security on the local computer (e.g., to convince the user that her computer is not infected with malware) and for communicating a remote computer's state (e.g., to enable the user to check that a web server will adequately protect her data). Although the recent "Trusted Computing" initiative has drawn both positive and negative attention to this area, we consider the older and broader topic of bootstrapping trust in a computer. We cover issues ranging from the wide collection of secure hardware that can serve as a foundation for trust, to the usability issues that arise when trying to convey computer state information to humans. This approach unifies disparate research efforts and highlights opportunities for additional work that can guide real-world improvements in computer security.

The perimeter defenses guarding your network perhaps are not as secure as you think. Hosts behind the firewall have no defenses of their own, so when a host in the "trusted" zone is breached, access to your data center is not far behind. That’s an all-too-familiar scenario today. With this practical book, you’ll learn the principles behind zero trust architecture, along with details necessary to implement it. The Zero Trust Model treats all hosts as if they’re internet-facing, and considers the entire network to be compromised and hostile. By taking this approach, you’ll focus on building strong authentication, authorization, and encryption throughout, while providing compartmentalized access and better operational agility. Understand how perimeter-based defenses have evolved to become the broken model we use today Explore two case studies of zero trust in production networks on the client side (Google) and on the server side (PagerDuty) Get example configuration for open source tools that you can use to build a zero trust network Learn how to migrate from a perimeter-based network to a zero trust network in production

“A warm yet specific book which cuts to the heart of leadership issues and savvy.”—The Bookwatch Informal, even conversational in style, Lead On! is nevertheless a serious handbook from which aspiring leaders can learn how to achieve seemingly impossible goals. The book is replete with examples from the author’s experience and from the history of the nuclear navy, where the price of failure can be death. Civilian managers will find that many of the principles discussed here can be employed with profit in private industry. The old school of motivation by coercion never accomplished much with submarine sailors, who are among the navy’s elite, and the author has found that what works with this new breed of mariner-technician can be of enormous value in dealing with the members of an entrepreneurial organization. Praise for Lead On! “A wealth of advice on military leadership that is also pertinent to civilian managers.”—The Retired Officer “It is a particular pleasure to see an officer from the ‘silent service’ publish his thoughts and viewpoints. In a light and breezy style . . . Admiral Oliver [expresses] some current thinking on critical issues.”—USNI Proceedings
