It eems that apple has a tpm project, it's covered under the APSL however it may have been somehting for inhouse use and not something they wanted released to the general public.


Another furtunate is that it is covered by the APSL which makes it's use legal provided you use it in accordance to the license.


The creation date on the project is August 2006, last modified March 2007.


From examination it looks a lot like the C r3d3.kext project or the C++ project dsmos.kext.


It builds cleanly, is significantly smaller when built and appears to have no ill effects when loaded on a PPC Mac as it has some architecture checking making it a safer installation than the dsmos.kext or r3d3.kext which from what I can tell, looks like cheap knock-offs.

Yes, it does look extremely similar to dsmos.kext source.


Only way I could get it to compile at all was by commenting out #include <kern/page_decrypt.h> - as done with the dsmos source.


Interesting that the Karma text is still contained in it, considering it should no longer be needed for Leopard - You say it compiles cleanly am I correct in assuming you compiled it on a PPC?
