And now this. 1)How bad does this lower the security of Bitlocker when used with TPM? 2)Is this something that can be fixed with software or is new hardware (TPM module) going to be needed?

From the article:
"..TPM version 2.0 doesn't use factorizable keys for BitLocker."


The one that you are looking at is TPM 2.0 - so no worries (..in this context). :wink:
