tpm2_nvextend [OPTIONS] [ARGUMENT]
tpm2_nvextend(1) - Extend an Non-Volatile (NV) index like it was a PCR. The NV index must be of type "extend" which is specified via the "nt" field when creating the NV space with tpm2_nvdefine(1). The index can be specified as raw handle or an offset value to the NV handle range "TPM2_HR_NV_INDEX" as an argument.
