Hi zjchen, are you referring to this blog post? It covers how to utilize TPMs with Connext Secure:

That particular implementation was based on this TPM 2.0 engine for OpenSSL: https://github.com/tpm2-software/tpm2-tss-engine

This project is specific for Linux (I just checked and it seems there is no mention to Windows or Mac OS).

In general the DDS Security plug-in uses OpenSSL and if you are using the latest version of the DDS Security plug-in you can specify the external engine for cryptographic operations (so if you have OpenSSL with TPM2 engine, that's all you need).

I am not familiar with what is available on Windows and Mac in terms of support for TPM, but it seems that the tpm2-software project on Github is only for Linux.
