TCPA/TCG and NGSCB: Benefits and Risks for Users
University of Skövde, School of Humanities and Informatics.
2004 (English)Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor)Student thesis
Abstract [en]

Trusted computing has been proposed as a way to enhance computer security and privacy significantly by including them in the design of computing platforms instead of adding them on top of an inherently insecure foundation; however, the project has attracted much criticism. This dissertation looks at trusted computing from the user perspective. Possible beneficial uses of the technology are brought up, and some of the raised criticism is discussed. The criticism is analyzed in an attempt to find out if the criticism is correct on all points, or if some of it is the result of misinformation or misunderstanding. The conclusion is that not all the arguments against trusted computing are correct, and that the possible implications for users are taken into account in the development process. The dissertation ends on a positive note, concluding that trusted computing is possible without the worst fears of the critics coming true.
