Ruhr-University Bochum and Sirrix AG have developed an open source application providing an easy to use graphical user interface to manage and configure a Trusted Platform Module (TPM).
The TPM Manager can be used on PC systems equipped with a TPM that is supported by the Linux kernel. Users of such systems can now easily check the capabilities of their TPM, read out public keys and certificates, or change the TPM settings like, e.g., disable or activate it.
The TPM Manager is currently available for Linux only, but should be easily portable to other operating systems providing a TSS API. The source code of the TPM Manager is available on SourceForge at  and licensed under GPL. We appreciate feedback from users who like to give it a try. Users will also find help and support on the Trusted Computing Forum at .
