NOTE: Your TPM may not support all algorithms.

Algorithm Specfiers

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: <>
