I think when this was merged 2 years ago, when webui-vue was still very 
very young, the thinking was we will switch to Redfish when TPMenable is 
implemented in Redfish and there was value to having a working page. 
This does go against a core design goal of webui-vue.  I certainly would 
-1 any commit trying to add D-Bus REST API to webui-vue today. I think 
this is just a TODO that hasn't been implemented.

GET TrustedModuleRequiredToBoot is available today. The PATCH is in 
review here:

We will push a commit to switch this to Redfish.
