Testing for impact of Infineon's vulnerable RSA generation (CVE-2017-15361)

A security vulnerability exists in the firmware of certain Infineon Trusted Platform Module (TPM) chipsets. The vulnerability weakens key strength. It is weakened so much that it is possible to derive the private key from the public key for RSA key pairs of up to 2048-bit.
This page contains a number of manners in which you can verify whether your computer contains an affected Infineon TPM chip that generates vulnerable RSA key pairs.
