Fixed In Version: tpm2-tss 2.4.3
Doc Type: If docs needed, set a value
Doc Text:
The tpm2-tss package introduced an implementation of TCG Feature API (FAPI) from v2.4.0. While instantiating TPM policy via FAPI, TPM's Platform Configuration Register (PCR) are used to compute policy digest. While reading PCR values via 'ifapi_read_pcr' routine, a PCR list counter was not set which can lead to an incorrect policy instantiation. This may potentially lead to a DoS scenario.
