Whether being heralded as a means of securing sensitive user data or condemned as a method of usurping owner control, trusted computing is proving to be one of the most controversial security technologies in recent years. Rather than become embroiled in the debate over possible (mis)appropriations of trusted computing technologies, the authors highlight some of the technical obstacles that can hinder trusted computing's widespread adoption.
