Note: the following information has not been verified, contains no citations, and may be incorrect. Apple computers manufactured after 2006 do not have a TPM chip, and the existence of this part is not required by OS X or macOS.
The TPM is a required part for G4 and G5 PowerPC Macintoshes. It is required for Mac OS X to even load, as a security measure to make sure you're running it on official Apple hardware (citation needed). Many groups do not like this technology as it is closed and horrible, yet it claims to only do security operations.
While we can't tell you how to use it, here's some basic facts about the part. It's basically there to do security operations (encrypting, decrypting etc) very quickly and easily. These modules are only generally used by Microsoft, Intel, HP, Apple and AMD.
