tpm2_policynv(1) - Evaluates policy authorization by comparing a specified value against the contents in the specified NV Index.
tpm2_policynv [OPTIONS] [ARGUMENT] [ARGUMENT]
tpm2_policynv(1) - This command evaluates policy authorization by comparing the contents written to an NV index against the one specified in the tool options. The tool takes two arguments - (1) The NV index specified as raw handle or an offset value to the nv handle range "TPM2_HR_NV_INDEX" and (2) Comparison operator for magnitude comparison and or bit test operations. In the specification the NV index holding the data is called operandA and the data that the user specifies to compare is called operandB. The comparison operator can be specified as follows: * "eq" if operandA = operandB * "neq" if operandA != operandB * "sgt" if signed operandA > signed operandB * "ugt" if unsigned operandA > unsigned operandB * "slt" if signed operandA < signed operandB * "ult" if unsigned operandA < unsigned operandB * "sge" if signed operandA >= signed operandB * "uge" if unsigned operandA >= unsigned operandB * "sle" if signed operandA <= unsigned operandB * "ule" if unsigned operandA <= unsigned operandB * "bs" if all bits set in operandA are set in operandB * "bc" if all bits set in operandA are clear in operandB
Specifies the hierarchy used to authorize. Supported options are: * o for TPM_RH_OWNER * p for TPM_RH_PLATFORM *
<num>where a hierarchy handle or nv-index may be used.
When -C isn't explicitly passed the index handle will be used to authorize against the index. The index auth value is set via the -p option to tpm2_nvdefine(1).
Specifies the authorization value for the hierarchy.
File to save the policy digest.
The policy session file generated via the -S option to tpm2_startauthsession or saved off of a previous tool run.
The offset within the NV index to start comparing at. The size of the data starting at offset and ending at size of NV index shall not exceed the size of the operand specified in the options.
File path to record the hash of the command parameters. This is commonly termed as cpHash. NOTE: When this option is selected, The tool will not actually execute the command, it simply returns a cpHash.
Specifies the input file with data to compare to NV Index contents. In the standard specification, this is termed as operand or operandB more specifically . It can be specified as a file input or stdin if option value is a "-".
common options collection of common options that provide information many users may expect.
common tcti options collection of options used to configure the various known TCTI modules.
Test if NV index content value is equal to an input number. To do this we first create an NV index of size 1 byte and write a value. Eg. 0xAA. Next we attempt to create a policy that becomes valid if the equality comparison operation of the NV index content against the one specified in the tool options.
Define the test NV Index and write the value 0xAA to it
nv_test_index=0x01500001 tpm2_nvdefine -C o -p nvpass $nv_test_index -a "authread|authwrite" -s 1 echo "aa" | xxd -r -p | tpm2_nvwrite -P nvpass -i- $nv_test_index
Attempt defining policynv with wrong comparison value specified in options.
tpm2_startauthsession -S session.ctx --policy-session ### This should fail echo 0xBB | tpm2_policynv -S session.ctx -L policy.nv -i- 0x1500001 eq -P nvpass tpm2_flushcontext session.ctx
Attempt defining policynv with right comparison value specified in options.
tpm2_startauthsession -S session.ctx --policy-session ### This should pass echo 0xAA | tpm2_policynv -S session.ctx -L policy.nv -i- 0x1500001 eq -P nvpass tpm2_flushcontext session.ctx
