Abstract
The use of integrity protection mechanisms from a tactical Identity Management (IdM) system is the focus of this paper. While traditional identity management systems supports authentication, and some also access control, there is still a need for attestation of platform integrity. The proposed solution employs the Trusted Platform Module (TPM) hardware unit to secure the integrity of the software configuration, and to provide cryptographic proof to the IdM system for subsequent attestation of the system's integrity. The communicating parties may elevate their mutual trust on the basis of this attestation.
