FutureTPM: Jan. 2018 – Dec. 2020

FutureTPM (Future Proofing the Connected World: A Quantum-Resistant Trusted Platform Module): Jan. 2018 – Dec. 2020

FutureTPM (Future Proofing the Connected World: A Quantum-Resistant Trusted Platform Module). The goal of FutureTPM is to create a Quantum-Resistant (QR) Trusted Platform Module (TPM) by designing and developing QR algorithms suitable for inclusion in a TPM. The algorithm design will be accompanied by implementation and performance evaluation, as well as formal security analyses in the full range of TPM environments: i.e. hardware, software and virtualization environments. Use cases in online banking, activity tracking and device management will provide environments and applications to validate the FutureTPM framework. FutureTPM will provide robust and provably-secure QR algorithms for a new generation of TPMs. A key strategic objective of FutureTPM is to contribute to standardization efforts at EU level within TCG, ISO/IEC and ETSI. Because the TPM shares many functions in common with other widely-used devices, such as HSMs and TEEs, the FutureTPM solution is expected to benefit them as well.

The consortium consists of high calibre industrial and academic partners from across Europe, combining QR crypto researchers with TPM developers. The FutureTPM project partners are:
