What does TPM protection on tablet means

What does TPM stands for. I had seen this thing in Samsung device. What does it actually means. Is it some service like wallet that offer a secure transaction stuff. I am not able to find any application associated with the same in the device. When I check on web I found this is some kind of security platform. But I am not able to understand this completely. Is this some kind of antivirus or security stuff. Does it cause issue if install apps from third party site.

It is some kind of security stuff. It is also used on tablet and pc. It give you advance security solution like disk encryption, password protection, etc. It is some kind of hardware level security stuff. This module is applied on system to keep them safe from hacks and virus. It is actually a architecture. Most of the business products have this feature included in them. The feature offer you a chip which integrated on the motherboard. This chip monitor threats on the system and keep a track of the same. If the chip found that someone is trying to access your system it will block the same. It also offer you high security support. You can encrypt your entire disk and block access to anyone. It is a bit advance things. You have to checkout the full definition on Wikipedia to understand it.

It is mostly associated with data encryption. This feature is associated with secure computing. The settings to enable and disable the same is located in the bios. This technology allow you to control and manage security through hardware based. It is used for authentication purpose. TPM add a higher level of security on your system. It is used with other hardware used on the network offering you a more powerful secure solution. You can go in the bios and check for tpm. You just have to enable it. Or you can use tpm utility that comes by default in many system. You just have to turn it on. When you turn it on the next thing you have to do is enable ownership. You will have to add a password. This is a powerful password not easy to crack.

Re: What does TPM protection on tablet means

This thing mostly handles the encryption key. It is normally added on the motherboard. So if you need this in your pc then you have to check the motherboard specification. The tpm microchip offers a cryptographic keys. Which are encrypted and also decrypted by TPM. This add a kind of third party encryption support on your system which is more power compare to other stuff. It is a bit complicated to give you a detailed encryption about the module. I had seen in some dell system. This faculty is also available in them. It is a required feature for corporates. They encrypt confidential data on their system. It is controlled and managed by a different hardware due to which it is complicated to crack it.
