HPESBHF03789 rev.2 - Certain HPE Gen9 Systems with HP Trusted Platform Module v2.0 Option, Unauthorized Access to Data
NOTICE: The information in this Security Bulletin should be acted upon as soon as possible.

Release Date: 2017-10-16

Last Updated: 2017-10-17


Potential Security Impact: Local: Unauthorized Access to Data; Remote: Unauthorized Access to Data

VULNERABILITY SUMMARY

A potential security vulnerability has been identified in the "HP Trusted Platform Module 2.0 Option" kit. This optional kit is available for HPE Gen9 systems with firmware version 5.51. The vulnerability in TPM firmware 5.51 is that new mathematical methods exist such that RSA keys generated by the TPM 2.0 with firmware 5.51 are cryptographically weakened. This vulnerability could lead to local and remote unauthorized access to data.

Note:

  • The "HP Trusted Platform Module Option" (TPM 1.2) for HPE Gen6 through Gen9 systems is not affected.

RESOLUTION

HPE has provided both an updated system ROM, and updated TPM firmware to correct this issue for impacted systems. Update the system ROM and "HPE Trusted Platform Module 2.0 Option" to firmware version 5.62 or subsequent.

The latest version of the System ROM is available, and must be updated before updating the TPM firmware. Use these instructions:

1.Click the following link:

2.Enter a product name (e.g., "DL380 Gen9") in the text field under Enter a Product Name or Number.3.Click Go.4.Select the appropriate product model from the Results list (if prompted).5.Click the "drivers, software & firmware" hyperlink under the Download Options tab.6.Select the system's specific operating system from the Operating Systems dropdown menu.7.Click the category BIOS - System ROM.8.Select the latest release of HPE System ROM Version 2.50 (or later).9.Click Download.

The latest version of the TPM firmware is available. Use these instructions:

1.Click the following link:

2.Enter a product name (e.g., "DL380 Gen9") in the text field under Enter a Product Name or Number. 3.Click Go. 4.Select the appropriate product model from the Results list (if prompted). 5.Click the "drivers, software & firmware" hyperlink under the Download Options tab. 6.Select the system's specific operating system from the Operating Systems dropdown menu. 7.Click the category Firmware. 8.Select the latest release of the HPE Trusted Platform Module 2.0 Option firmware update for HPE Gen9 Severs Version 5.62 (or later). 9.Click Download.

Note:

  • After the firmware upgrade, the TPM will generate RSA keys using an improved algorithm. Revoking the weak TPM generated RSA keys will still be required. Refer to the OS documentation for OS-specific instructions. In addition, a System ROM update to version 2.50 (or later) is required before updating the TPM 2.0 firmware.
