NAME

       tpm_createek - create an Endorsement Key Pair on the TPM

SYNOPSIS

       tpm_createek [OPTION]

DESCRIPTION

       tpm_createek creates and Endorsement Key Pair on the TPM (via the
       TPM_CreateEndorsementKeyPair API).  This should rarely be required as the Endorsement Key
       is normally installed as part of manufacturing.  However, you might need to run this
       command once if commands such as tpm_getpubek are returning error code 35 from the TPM
       layer.

       -h, --help
              Display command usage info.

       -v, --version
              Display command version info.

       -l, --log [none|error|info|debug]
              Set logging level.

OPTIONS VALID ONLY FOR TPM VERSION 1.2

       -r, --revocable
              Creates a revocable key pair instead of non-revocable one. Requires secret data
              (either -g -o or -i - see below).

       -i, --infile [input file]
              Specifies the file that contains the secret data used as revoke data do the new
              revocable EK pair. Only the first 20 bytes of this file  are used and the remaining
              ones are ignored.

       -g, --generate-secret
              Generates a random 20 bytes value that is used as the EK pair revocable secret
              data. Requires -o (see below).

       -o, --outfile [output file]
              Specifies the file to write the generated revocable secret data to, for further
              use.
