The point I was trying to make is that this doesn't work for "the
whole internet".  This is for a small, mostly homogeneous, sets of
systems and you want to be sure of what code they're running.  These
computers may indeed be connected over the internet and hence be in
different administrative domains.  TPM helps to make sure the admins are
honest, but as they have the hardware there's always the chance they
could physically alter the hardware in ways that it doesn't notice.
Non-physical attacks should be prevented though.
