New Dell computers with TPM chips

Anonymous Reader writes "The computers contain a Trusted Platform Module (TPM), a unique standards-based hardware security chip that handles various security tasks on a computer. This hardware-based solution holds computer-generated keys for encryption, helping avoid attack by hackers looking to capture passwords or steal the encryption keys to access sensitive data stored on PCs."
