The TNC IF-T Protocol Binding for Tunneled EAP Methods (TIPBTEM) is specified by Trusted Computing Group (TCG) for TNC assessment (i.e., Platform-Authentication) exchanges. Because the TIPBTEM includes Platform-Authentication in addition to the usual user authentication, it differs greatly from the traditional security protocols in terms of security requirements. To analyze the security of the TIPBTEM correctly, the extended strand space model (SSM) for trusted network access protocols is

To eliminate MITM attacks, the unsecure cases of the TIPBTEM are improved based on cryptographic binding. And then it is showed that these improved TIPBTEM cases can resist MITM attacks in the extended SSM.
