What is TPM
Trusted Platform Module (TPM) is a small chipset that comes embedded with latest laptops. The TPM technology is meant to supply hardware-based, security-related functions. A TPM chip is a secure crypto-processor that's designed to hold out cryptographic operations. The chip includes multiple physical security mechanisms to form it tamper resistant, and malicious software is unable to tamper with the safety functions of the TPM.
Advantages of using TPM technology Generate, store, and limit the utilization of cryptographic keys. Use TPM technology for platform device authentication by using the TPM’s unique RSA key, which is burned into itself. Help ensure platform integrity by taking and storing security measurements. How to check if your laptop has TPM 2.0 If you're unsure whether your PC meets the minimum requirements for getting a free upgrade to Windows 11 from the prevailing Windows 10, you'll either ask your PC Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) otherwise you can use the PC checkup app to assess compatibility. What if your laptop or PC doesn't have TPM chipset?
According to Microsoft, if any of the hardware requirements aren't met by your device, you'll not be ready to install Windows 11 on your device and might want to think about purchasing a replacement PC.
