Description

The file /etc/swtpm_setup.conf contains configuration information for the swtpm_setup and swtpm_setup.sh programs. It must only contain one configuration keywork per line, followed by an equals sign (=) and then followed by appropriate configuration information. A comment at the end of the line may be introduced by a hash (#) sign.

The following keywords are recognized:

--type type

This parameter indicates the type of certificate to create. The type parameter may be one of the following: ek, or platform
