TPM aka Trusted Platform Modules

According to the wikipedia article (insert grain of salt), the tpm not only has the ability to offload certain cryptographic functions, but also do things like be a hardware-based random number generator, store keys, etc.
- How does this compare to the soekris crypto-accelerator (Just a co-processor?)
- would it be useful (and can pfsense use it) for vpns, etc? (a driver like hifn for the crypto-framework?)
FreeBSD has a tpm(4) driver but it only mentions storing cryptographic keys as far as I can see, nothing about RNGs
