Do any of the Intel Compute Sticks include a TPM chip?

I own both a Lenovo Stick 300, and more recently, an Intel STK1AW32SC (due to long story about Lenovo customer service ...).

The Lenovo Stick includes a TPM chip, and so I have upgraded the OS on that to Windows 10 x32 Professional in order to use BitLocker encryption. BitLocker protects my data in case the stick is lost or stolen.

My STK1AW32SC does not appear to have a TPM chip. Do any of the Intel Compute Sticks have a TPM chip? If not, is this a feature that Intel intends to add to future models?

Hello Dean Gibson,

 

 

You can see the Intel® Compute Stick that supports TPM at the following link:

Best regards,

What is really, really interesting, is that if someone installs BIOS v0029 on the STK1AW32SC and enables "PTT" in the BIOS, then Windows recognizes a TPM in the hardware. Whether this is an emulation, or an actual TPM chip, I don't know (or care!).

I've upgraded the STK1AW32SC to Windows 10 x64 Professional and enabled BitLocker (using the "TPM") on the SSD !!!

Thank you for taken your time to share that valuable information with us and I'm glad that you are able to enable BitLocker in your Intel® Compute Stick.

 

 

Please let me know if you need anything else.

 

 

Best wishes,

 

 

Ivan

Actually, what's really, really informative is the link at the end of that article to Microsoft's https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/itpro/windows/keep-secure/tpm-recommendations TPM recommendations (Windows 10). That article answered my (previously unexpressed) questions about how a BIOS firmware change could "create" a TPM in some Intel processors (those with "PTT" aka "Platform Trust Technology"), but that's exactly what It does!

Thanks!

That's great and thank you for letting me know, I posted the link and I did not realize about the link at the end of that article.

 

 

 

Thanks,
