- TSS.MSR: The TPM Software Stack from Microsoft Research
In addition to physical TPM devices, the TSS.MSR libraries can also connect to a TPM simulator to enable application development and debugging on platforms that do not have a TPM 2.0 device. The connection to the simulator is over a TCP/IP socket so the simulator may be running on a remote machine or in another process on the same machine. Below you will find a link to download the TPM2 Simulator binary for use with the TSS.MSR TPM2 libraries.
