Re: Isn't this...

"Firstly every TPM has a unique RSA key burned into the module. This means that the TPM can offer evidence of identity which is important if you have a need to prove that your computer is your computer associated with you."

Who says that it's actually unique? How do you know that this key wasn't copied to some three letter agency? How can anyone prove that it wasn't copied? What if the laser or power supply pulses during burning can be detected next door?

The name is the clue. Is the 'platform module' actually 'trusted'?
