tpm_takeownership - setup an owner on the TPM
tpm_takeownership setup an owner on the system's TPM (via the TPM_TakeOwnership API). This operation requires the TPM to be enabled and can be restricted by tpm_setownable. The command will prompt for owner and SRK passwords and confirmations of these if executed without either of the -well-known options, otherwise, a secret of all zeros is set for the requested password. After the second confirmation, be patient as the command may take awhile. -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 Set a secret of all zeros (20 bytes of zeros) as the owner's secret. -z, --srk-well-known Set a secret of all zeros (20 bytes of zeros) as the SRK secret.
