			TPM Management - tpm_createek

NAME
       tpm_createek - create an	Endorsement Key	Pair on	the TPM

SYNOPSIS
       tpm_createek [OPTION]

DESCRIPTION
       tpm_createek creates and	Endorsement Key	Pair on	the TPM	(via the
       TPM_CreateEndorsementKeyPair API).  This	should rarely be required as
       the Endorsement Key is normally installed as part of manufacturing.
       However,	you might need to run this command once	if commands such as
       tpm_getpubek are	returning error	code 35	from the TPM layer.

       -h, --help
	      Display command usage info.

       -v, --version
	      Display command version info.

       -l, --log [none|error|info|debug]
	      Set logging level.

OPTIONS	VALID ONLY FOR TPM VERSION 1.2
       -r, --revocable
	      Creates a	revocable key pair instead of non-revocable one.
	      Requires secret data (either -g -o or -i - see below).

       -i, --infile [input file]
	      Specifies	the file that contains the secret data used as revoke
	      data do the new revocable	EK pair. Only the first	20 bytes of
	      this file	 are used and the remaining ones are ignored.

       -g, --generate-secret
	      Generates	a random 20 bytes value	that is	used as	the EK pair
	      revocable	secret data. Requires -o (see below).
