Infineon TPM Professional Package V2.5


5.4 Trusted Platform Module Firmware Upgrade

After installation, it is recommended to check whether a firmware update is available provided by http://www.infineon.com


5.5 Known Bugs and  Limitations

5.5.1 Problems with the Trusted Platform Module:

In case an application using the Trusted Platform Module fails, resetting the Trusted Platform Module may solve the problem.
To reset the Trusted Platform Module, shut down the PC (turn off the computer after the system has shut down) and start the PC again.


5.5.2 Known Online Help Error

After installation of Microsoft security updates, the Security Platform Help may not function correctly when the .chm file is opened from a remote location. Further information is available in the Microsoft Knowledge Base, e.g. in Microsoft Security Bulletin MS05-026 and in Microsoft Knowledge Base Article 896358.


5.5.3 No support for saving Personal Secure Drive content to a CD data disc at Windows XP

On XP Windows, Explorer supports to write data directly to CD data discs with Joliet and ISO-9660 file systems.
During the process of deleting a Personal Secure Drive, it is not supported to select such a CD data disc for saving the content of the Personal Secure Drive. If you want to save the content of a Personal Secure Drive to a CD data disc, use Windows Explorer directly before deleting the Personal Secure Drive.


5.5.4 Personal Secure Drive and Windows XP System Restore 
 
If you enabled System Restore please note that Personal Secure Drive is like any other drive on your computer monitored by System Restore.
To ensure that System Restore is working properly with your Personal Secure Drive consider the following:
 
a) Personal Secure Drive with a size up to 200 MB
You need to install Microsoft Hotfix WindowsXP-KB888402-x86-xxx.exe (where xxx is the language specific version).
This hotfix is only available for Windows XP SP2 via Microsoft support (http://support.microsoft.com). Please refer to KB888402.
If you do not install this Hotfix, System Restore Points are deleted every time you load your PSD drive.
 
b) Personal Secure Drives with a size bigger than 200 MB
Personal Secure Drives bigger than 200 MB will be handled as every other drive which is of "local disk" type.
To ensure that System Restore is working properly please consider the disk space requirements of System Restore.
Following these requirements leave at least 80 MB free disk space on a Personal Secure Drive.
 
 
5.5.5 Timeout in user authentication for WLAN client connection

You need to authenticate to establish a WLAN client connection. Security Platform User Authentication is displayed. Please authenticate within 30 seconds.
Else the WLAN client connection might fail. To enable the WLAN client connection after a timeout, click "Repair" in the WLAN connection's context menu. You do not need to logoff, logon and authenticate again in this case.


5.5.6 Possible user authentication problem in "Run as" mode

Under certain circumstances, an internal error will be returned when the user authentication dialog is expected. This error might occur if all of the following conditions are met:
- The program requiring the user authentication (e.g. User Initialization Wizard) was started in "Run as" mode.
- A certain version of the software "PGP" is installed, e.g. V8.1.
- There was no preceding user authentication in the current logon session.


5.5.7 Dictionary Attack behavior after upgrade from version 2.0

On Infineon Trusted Platform Module 1.2 systems which have been upgraded from Infineon Security Platform Software 2.0 the dictionary attack behavior has to be explicitly initialized by performing a defense level reset. Please start the Security Platform Initialization Wizard SpTPMWz.exe with the command line parameter -resetattack or /resetattack. Else the dictionary attack behavior is not as described in the online help. For example, the Security Platform is not temporarily disabled after multiple wrong authentication attempts.
