NAME

       tpm_setclearable - disable TPM clear operations

SYNOPSIS

       tpm_setclearable [OPTION]

DESCRIPTION

       tpm_setclearable reports the status of the TPM's flags regarding how the TPM can be
       cleared.  This is the default behavior and also accessible via the --status option.
       Requesting a report of this status prompts for the owner password.  The --owner option
       requests that the TPM disable clear operations (via the TPM_DisableOwnerClear API)
       disabling the owner from clearing out the ownership information.  This operation prompts
       for the owner password.  This operation is in effect until the current owner is cleared.
       The --force option (via the TPM_DisableForceClear API) disables using Phyiscal Presence to
       authorize a clear operation.  This operation does not require authorization and will skip
       the owner password prompt.  This operation is only in effect until a reboot.

       -s, --status
              Report the status of flags regarding how the TPM can be cleared.

       -o, --owner
              Disable use of owner authorization for authorizating a clear operation until a new
              owner exists.

       -f, --force
              Disable use of Physical Presence for authorizating a clear operation until a reboot
              has occurred.

       -z, --well-known
              Authenticate using 20 bytes of zeros as owner password (the default TSS Well Known
              Secret), instead of prompting for an owner password.
