TPM Attestation Test

This test exercises a number of test cases to ensure that all of the attestation scenarios for the TPM are working. In the setup steps, the test disables auto provisioning of the TPM, requests a TPM clear operation from firmware and after a restart Ownership is taken. This test runs the following test scripts which use the PCPTool attestation toolkit SDK sample:

  1. BasicProviderTest.cmd

  2. AikCreation.cmd

  3. Attestation.cmd

  4. KeyAttestationTest.cmd

  5. TrustPointValidation.cmd

  6. HostageKey.cmd

  7. PCRBoundKeyTest.cmd
