Microsoft’s Bitlocker & TPM encryption combo defeated with a $10 Raspberry Pi and a bit of braininess

The point of Microsoft’s Bitlocker security feature is to protect personal data stored locally on devices and particularly when those devices are lost or otherwise physically compromised. With Bitlocker, it shouldn’t matter if you lose your laptop or somebody pinches your SSD. Your data still can’t be accessed.

Except it can and all that’s needed is a $10 Raspberry Pi and a little (OK, a lot of) ingenuity, according to YouTube channel Stacksmashing(via Hardwareluxx). How so? Well, it involves the TPM or Trusted Platform Module chip.
