For future Chromebooks/Chromeboxes, Google appears to be building an open-source TPM 2.0 implementation that's possibly backed by open hardware.

Their own TPM (Trusted Platform Module) 2.0 implementation can be found in their Git code and here plus more code here. The TPM 2.0 implementation uses a Cortex-M3 core and there's also an FPGA version.

It will be interesting to see where this TPM2 work by Google leads. Google has used (closed) TPM modules on Chromebooks as part of their security apparatus. Seeing more Google TPM2 open-source references come as we are still looking to learn more about Google's "Eve" Kabylake Chromebook. More details as they become available.
