TSS_RESULT Tspi_Policy_AssignToObject(TSS_HPOLICY hPolicy, TSS_HOBJECT hObject);


Tspi_Policy_AssignToObject assigns a given object to a certain policy. The object then uses its assigned policy to process an authorized TPM command. When each new object is initialized, it is assigned to the default policy, which is created when a context object is created. When an object is assigned to a policy, a reference is added to the list of assigned objects stored in the policy, and a reference to the policy is stored in the object by internal object functions.



The hPolicy parameter is the handle of the policy object to be assigned to.


The hObject parameter is the object that will be assigned to hPolicy.

Return Codes

Tspi_Policy_AssignToObject returns TSS_SUCCESS on success, otherwise one of the following values is returned:


hPolicy is not a valid handle.


An internal SW error has been detected.
