NAME

tpm_setoperatorauth - sets the operator authorization value in the TPM

SYNOPSIS

tpm_setoperatorauth [OPTION]
 

DESCRIPTION

tpm_setoperatorauth allows setting the operator authorization value in the TPM (via the TPM_SetOperatorAuth API). This operation prompts for the new password and a confirmation of it. The --well-known option tells the API to use the default TSS_WELL_KNOWN_SECRET (a 20-bytes array of zeros) as operator authorization information, instead of prompting for one.
