tpm2_createpolicy(1) — Creates simple assertion authorization policies based on multiple pcr indices values across multiple enabled banks.
tpm2_createpolicy(1) - Creates simple assertion authorization policies based on multiple pcr indices values across multiple enabled banks. It can then be used with object creation and or tools using the object.
These options control creating the policy authorization session:
- -f, –policy-file=POLICY_FILE: File to save the policy digest.
- -P, –policy-pcr: Identifies the PCR policy type for policy creation.
- -g, –policy-digest-alg=HASH_ALGORITHM: The hash algorithm used in computation of the policy digest. Algorithms should follow the “formatting standards, see section”Algorithm Specifiers“. Also, see section”Supported Hash Algorithms" for a list of supported hash algorithms.
- -L, –set-list=PCR_LIST: The list of pcr banks and selected PCRs' ids (0~23) for each bank.
- -F, –pcr-input-file=PCR_FILE: Optional Path or Name of the file containing expected pcr values for the specified index. Default is to read the current PCRs per the set list.
- -e, –extend-policy-session: Retains the policy session at the end of operation.
- -a, –auth-policy-session: Start a policy session of type TPM_SE_POLICY. Default without this option is TPM_SE_TRIAL.
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.
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 Hash Algorithms
Supported hash algorithms are:
- 0x4 or sha1 for TPM_ALG_SHA1 (default)
- 0xB or sha256 for TPM_ALG_SHA256
- 0xC or sha384 for TPM_ALG_SHA384
- 0xD or sha512 for TPM_ALG_SHA512
- 0x12 or sm3_256 for TPM_ALG_SM3_256
NOTE: Your TPM may not support all algorithms.
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>
Create a authorization policy tied to a specific PCR index:
tpm2_createpolicy -P -L 0x4:0 -f policy.file -F pcr0.bin
0 on success or 1 on failure.
