VULNERABILITY SUMMARY

In May 2019, ST Micro a Trusted Platform Module (TPM) vendor was contacted by an academic team who described a security vulnerability discovered with an ST TPM. The vulnerability targets the ECDSA signature generation function supported by an identified TPM product (ST33TPHF2ESPI - FW 73.4). The attack is based on TPM command timing execution measurements ROCA (Return of the Coppersmith Attack CVE-2019-16863) and the researchers have named this attack TPM-Fail. The vulnerability only impacts certain HPE ProLiant, Synergy, Edgeline and Apollo Gen10 Server Platforms configured with TPM and the vulnerable firmware.
