Trusted Computing? Yes or No

July 4, 2019



Trust trust is the personal belief in correctness of something it is the deep conviction of truth and rightness and cannot be enforced if you gain someone's trust you have established an interpersonal relationship based on communication share values and experiences trust always depends on mutuality this process has been reshaped by the computer industry now a microchip does that task for you the industry calls it trusted – computing this chip will be in computers notebooks servers PDAs cell phone scam units DVD players set up boxes watch this case maybe I are approaching Firefox 5 and it will be in your devices – what has trusted computing to do with trust let us show you in a trusted computing environment the major goal is to protect us from potential threats the original trusted computing idea is designed to let you decide what to consider as threat and what's to consider trustworthy you can control by your own personal conviction trusted computing sounds great doesn't it the industry's interpretation of the trusted computing idea looks quite similar aiming at the same to fight threats and make computing trustworthy the main difference is that you cannot decide by your own what is trustworthy and what is not because they already decided for you and they already decided not to trust you so if they don't trust you why should you trust them trusted computing sounds great is it Dunmore you

    This is very relevant, has already happened, and can be technically understood by ICT experts or nerds. It's rather theoretic here, but it's 100% real. Just an abstraction.

    This video was created more than a decade ago when there have been what (in retrospect) I could call a "mass panic" about the possibility of trusted computing to be enforced on a large scale upon users. Again, in retrospect, this didn't happen the way we feared, but at that time this video was informative and was relevant. Thanks for sharing it!

    This video is the reason I never bought an Xbox, a PlayStation, a Switch or an iPhone.

    Not a single fact presented, just blatant skepticism with no defense of your arguments… Absolutely useless video and still doesn't explain WHAT trusted computing is.

    Free Software is the only software you should ever trust. If the community can not cooperate to remove malicious features from all of your software, your computer will be used by your software's owners against you.

    People who want more technical details can visit the LibreBoot frequently asked questions, https://libreboot.org/faq/ , but it's more important to understand you should avoid software with owners right down to the metal. Software owners and publishers have openly colluded to bake their malice into your devices. This should be against the law. Hopefully, people will understand the implications before it is too late.

    I was hoping for something a bit more informative :/
    and BTW in a computerized world what tools do you have to tell the trustworthiness of software?

  • Reply jrcharney July 4, 2019 at 4:25 pm

    Well, it appears that this happened anyway.
    Laptop computers are GLUED together rather than screwed. (They don't trust you with a screw driver, never mind that there can be specialty screws to make sure junior doesn't disassemble the computer.)
    You can't add new hardware to laptop computers or use old storage devices with them. (Windows 8.1 won't recongnize new hardware and goes nuts whenever you try to get it to work with some not so new hardware.  From what I've read this goes all the way back to Vista.)
    You can't migrate your system to a larger storage space. (Some "Restore.dll" error shows up.  At least this is my case.)
    You no longer buy software, you RENT it. (Microsoft Office, any Adobe Product, any Autocad product.  And any older version of these softwares (save for Microsoft) becomes disabled unless you buy the upgraded Rentware version.)
    If there is any better time to migrate to Open Source Software or Linux, now is the time.  The folks at Valve know this so should anyone else who wants to preserve privacy and take back control.

    I'm still hoping someone manufactures OpenSPARC boards and processors (non-embedded).

    Try Ubuntu: you'll find that isn't the case anymore good sir/madam.

    They sure did in their tablets, and they basically control who gets TPM certificates…

    @HWGuyEG
    It exists, my ThinkPad from early 2006 has a TPM (TCPA) chip, which can be switched on or off in BIOS, it's in every Intel Macintosh too. Right now though, it doesn't do much of anything.

    Problem with linux is that you have to go through obstacle after obstacle if you want to play/run 90% of programs that are in widespread use. I dont like using winXp, but, atleast its better than vista.

    "real TV" is so last century

    This video is really great, explains clearly what's the problem, really good animation. This is worth being on real TV.

    The US Department of Defense defines a "trusted computer" as one you trust not because it's worthy of trust, but because you have to trust it.
