TSS_RESULT Tspi_TPM_CreateEndorsementKey(TSS_HTPM        hTPM, TSS_HKEY hKey,

Tspi_TPM_CreateEndorsementKey creates an endorsement key. This function is currently not implemented. Before this method is called, the key information for creating the key must be set in the key object by Tspi_SetAttribData. On return, the public endorsement key can be retrieved by Tspi_GetAttribData from the key object.



The hTPM parameter is used to specify the handle of the TPM object.


The hKey parameter is the handle of the key specifying the attributes of the endorsement key to create.


The pValidationData parameter is a validation data structure. It provides external information required to compute the signature. Once the command is completed, the structure provides a buffer containing the validation data and a buffer containing the data the validation data was computed from.

Return Codes

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


hTPM or hKey is not a valid handle.


An internal SW error has been detected.


One or more parameters is bad.
