Riassunto analitico
A technology called Trusted Computing (TC), helps building trust relationships between devices. Developers can design applications with the help of TC, so that the involved entities can be assured about the execution state of the other systems. To this aim a particular feature of TC, called Remote Attestation, is used. <br>A banking application is presented in this work, together with a protocol able to assure the non-repudiability of the payment operations.<br>Remote attestation can be used to provide the integrity assurance of the signing system, whilst digital signature assures the identity of the user. These two concepts are bound together with the help of cryptographic means offered by TC.
