Set up the TPM2 Storage Root Key (SRK) at boot

Synopsis

systemd-tpm2-setup.service

/usr/lib/systemd/systemd-tpm2-setup

Description

systemd-tpm2-setup.service and systemd-tpm2-setup-early.service are services that generate the Storage Root Key (SRK) if it hasn't been generated yet, and stores it in the TPM.

The services will store the public key of the SRK key pair in a PEM file in /run/systemd/tpm2-srk-public-key.pem and /var/lib/systemd/tpm2-srk-public-key.pem. It will also store it in TPM2B_PUBLIC format in /run/systemd/tpm2-srk-public-key.tpm2_public and /var/lib/systemd/tpm2-srk-public-key.tpm2b_public.

systemd-tpm2-setup-early.service runs very early at boot (possibly in the initrd), and writes the SRK public key to /run/systemd/tpm2-srk-public-key.* (as /var/ is generally not accessible this early yet), while systemd-tpm2-setup.service runs during a later boot phase and saves the public key to /var/lib/systemd/tpm2-srk-public-key.*.
