SYNOPSIS

tpm_changeownerauth [OPTION]

 

DESCRIPTION

tpm_changeownerauth allows for changing the authorization data for the TPM owner or the TPM's Storage Root Key (via the TPM_ChangeAuthOwner API). This operation prompts for current password, followed by the new password and a confirmation of the new password. The --owner option changes the TPM owner password and --srk option changes the TPM's SRK password. The --well-known option is used when SRK or owner passwords need to be changed and current owner password is a secret of zeros, --set-well-known option changes current password to a secret of zeros, both options do not work by themselves, they must be used with --owner and --srk options to indicate which of these passwords will be changed.
