NAME

       tpm_nvrelease

SYNOPSIS

       tpm_nvrelease [OPTIONS]

DESCRIPTION

       tpm_nvrelease releases an NVRAM area. The user must provide the index of the NVRAM area.
       If owner authentication is required then the user must provide the owner password.

       Note that some areas cannot be released since they are permanent. Others can be release
       only after a reboot of the system.

       The following options are supported:

       -h, --help
           Display command usage info.

       -v, --version
           Display command version info.

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

       -u, --unicode
           Use TSS UNICODE encoding for passwords to comply with applications using TSS popup
           boxes

       -y, --owner-well-known
           Use a secret of all zeros (20 bytes of zeros) as the owner's secret.

       -o, --pwdo
           The owner password.

           A password may be directly provided for example by using '--pwdo=password' or
           '-opassword'. If no password is provided with this option then the program will prompt
           the user for the password.

       -i, --index
           The index of the NVRAM area that is to be released.  The parameter may either be a
           decimal number or a hexadecimal number starting with '0x'.
