A Trusted Platform Module or TPM is the international standard for designing a secure cryptoprocessor. The cryptoprocessor is a microprocessor dedicated to the task of securing hardware by creating and integrating a cryptographic key into the hardware. TPM specifications were written by the TCG (Trusted Computing Group) and set as the ISO/IEC 11889 specification in 2009. The TCG continues to manage and update the TPM specifications today.
