TPMLIB_GetTPMProperty — Get a runtime property of the TPM

Library

TPM library (libtpms, -ltpms)

Synopsis

#include <libtpms/tpm_library.h>

TPM_RESULT TPMLIB_GetTPMProperty(enum TPMLIB_TPMProperty, int *result);

Description

The TPMLIB_GetTPMProperty() call is used to retrieve run-time parameters of the TPM such as the number of authorization sessions it can hold or the maximum sizes of the permanent state, savestate or volatile state blobs.

This function can be called before or after the TPM has been created. The current implementation of libtpms will return the same value before and after the TPM was started.

The following properties have been defined:

TPMPROP_TPM_RSA_KEY_LENGTH_MAX
The maximum size of an RSA key.
TPMPROP_TPM_BUFFER_MAX
The maximum sizes of the TPM command and result buffers.
TPMPROP_TPM_KEY_HANDLES
The number of key slots.
TPMPROP_TPM_OWNER_EVICT_KEY_HANDLES
The number of owner-evict keys.
TPMPROP_TPM_MIN_AUTH_SESSIONS
The number of authorization sessions.
TPMPROP_TPM_MIN_TRANS_SESSIONS
The number of transport sessions.
TPMPROP_TPM_MIN_DAA_SESSIONS
The number of DAA sessions.
TPMPROP_TPM_MIN_SESSION_LIST
The size of the session list.
TPMPROP_TPM_MIN_COUNTERS
The number of monotonic counters.
TPMPROP_TPM_NUM_FAMILY_TABLE_ENTRY_MIN
The number of family entries.
TPMPROP_TPM_NUM_DELEGATE_TABLE_ENTRY_MIN
The number of delegate entries.
TPMPROP_TPM_SPACE_SAFETY_MARGIN
The space saftey margin used for the worst-case sizes of the savestate and volatile state blobs. This safety marging is not used for the size of the permanent data blob.
TPMPROP_TPM_MAX_NV_SPACE
The maximum size of the permanent data blob.
TPMPROP_TPM_MAX_SAVESTATE_SPACE
The maximum size of the savestate blob (includes the space safety margin).
TPMPROP_TPM_MAX_VOLATILESTATE_SPACE
The maximum size of the volatile state blob (includes the space saferty margin).

Errors

TPM_SUCCESS
The function completed sucessfully.
TPM_FAIL
An undefined property was queried.

Example

#include <stdio.h>
#include <libtpms/tpm_library.h>
#include <libtpms/tpm_error.h>
int main(void) {
    TPM_RESULT res;
    int result;
    int rc = 0;
    if (TPMLIB_MainInit() != TPM_SUCCESS) {
        fprintf(stderr, "Could not start the TPM.\n");
        return 1;
    }
    if (TPMLIB_GetTPMProperty(TPMPROP_TPM_RSA_KEY_LENGTH_MAX, &result)
        != TPM_SUCCESS) {
        fprintf(stderr, "Could not read the max. size of RSA keys.\n");
        goto err_exit;
    }
    fprintf(stdout, "Max. size of RSA keys: %d\n", result);
err_exit:
    TPMLIB_Terminate();
    return 0;
