I want to use a virtual smart card in Windows Virtual Machine which requires Trusted Platform Module. How do I do that?


Trusted Platform Module (TPM) is a dedicated microprocessor designed to secure hardware by integrating cryptographic keys into devices, but TPM is integrated to PC computers only, therefore an emulation of virtual smart cards is not supported by Parallels Desktop: the main idea of TPM is that the private key of a smart card is non-removable, and in case of full emulation of the key, it will be potentially available.
