Trusted Platform Module for more secure Nokia Lumia appeal against BB.

| July 1, 2012 | 18 Replies

Trusted Platform Chip will apparently form part of the new Nokia Lumia WP8 phones. It’s not a new thing and has been on Windows computers for manufacturers to use for a while now. But not on MS mobile devices until now with WP8.

The article below is mostly about RIM’s problems but the last three paragraphs before the conclusion give a good overview on the importance of such security.

  • RIM’s secure network, highly regarded in the corporate world
  • Messages/communications delivered on encrypted, secure network
  • Folks moving away from BlackBerry are apparently security nightmare for IT admins.
  • WP8 could join BB network
  • But WP8 will incorporate TPM which RIM does not support.
  • TPM for MS means they don’t have to create their own global secure network.
Right now, the only device that work with RIM’s BlackBerry network are BlackBerry devices. So Microsoft has few reasons to want to embrace RIM’s technology or network. And with the launch of Windows Phone 8, it may have an opportunity to bury it.
Here’s an interesting read too:

  • Concerns of TPM include abuse of remote validation software, manufacturer can decide what runs on the system and can track what the user does. We’re in an ever growing age where everything we do is already tracked.
  • TPM cannot be legally deployed in China, Russia, Belarus or Khazakstan for fear that the state may not be able to access the secure network.
