Ensuring hardware security
We need to secure our hardware through device protection. Hackers have historically easily compromised a device before it is booted by dropping in rootkit malware without it even being noticed. It remains undetected after the device starts.
Trusted Platform Module (TPM), the Microsoft Pluton security processor, Hypervisor-Protected Code Integrity, and Windows Defender System Guard are all measures that can be used to provide the integrity of the device and OS before it even starts up. We will look at these measures in detail in the following sections.
TPM is a hardware-based security measure that provides tampering protection and can provide device health attestation. At the heart of TPM is a secure crypto-processor chip used for actions such as cryptographic key generation, storing, and use limitation.
Device health attestation enables trust to be established for a managed device based on the hardware and software components under the control...
