How about a tpm-tools module?

Since security is taking up so much IT managerial time in this troubled era, is the Webmin development universe working on a module for the TPM Tools software?

I can't figure out what it is. I browsed the website and googled a bit. WTF does it do? The website says it's an open source implementation of TCG, but googling doesn't reveal what TCG is/does.

So, let's start there...what is it, and how does it improve security?

I think this page should provide insight into what tpm-tools is.

*** TCG stands for "Trusted Computing Group" ***

"The Trusted Computing Group (TCG) is a not-for-profit organization formed to develop, define and promote open, vendor-neutral, global industry specifications and standards, supportive of a hardware-based root of trust, for interoperable trusted computing platforms.TCG’s core technologies include specifications and standards for the Trusted Platform Module (TPM), Trusted Network Communications (TNC) and network security and self-encrypting drives. TCG also has work groups to extend core concepts of trust into cloud security, virtualization and other platforms and computing services from the enterprise to the Internet of Things."
