Linux-based APIs are on the roadmap of various suppliers in support of the Trusted Computing Platform Alliance's (TCPA) security initiative.

The TCPA's plan features a hardware-based scheme to provide for secure communications and e-commerce applications.

Although TCPA's security initiative is operating system agnostic, the Linux APIs will be created for the group's Trusted Platform Module (TPM), said Mark Stafford, Infineon's group manager in the secure mobile solutions division.

TPM can store measurements of components of a system and provides protection of information and authentication for individual platforms.

Stafford said the TCPA plan provides a foundation and infrastructure for other security applications through strong authentication and could bring hardware-based security to the mass market.

Founders of TCPA include Compaq Computer, Hewlett-Packard, IBM, Intel and Microsoft.
