integrity checking

A task that the Trusted Platform Module (TPM) performs by confirming that the SHA-1 computed hash of each system component that runs during boot matches the values that are stored in platform configuration registers (PCRs) at the time BitLocker Drive Encryption was turned on.

integrity level

A number that represents how trustworthy a particular process, application, or object is.

integrity SID
