I have got an silly idea to use TPM (Trusted Platform Module) as backend for
Keytab storage (via GSS-Proxy).

GSS-Proxy prevents application from accessing key material, right? So
GSS-Proxy could theoretically store keys in TPM and application wouldn't
notice any difference, right?

We have libraries for that in Fedora already:

Even sillier idea is to use TPM as a PKCS#11 module:

I have no idea what the use case could be ... :-) May be as a "cache" for
PKCS#11 module in SSSD?

As I said, it is just a silly idea.

Open a ticket in the GSS-Proxy trac :)

Is it a good topic for bachelor/master thesis? We are going to send list of topics for next year so we have a chance to add it.

We are not going to touch this any time soon so it sounds like a good idea to me.

I am not sure. Sounds like a lot of work with questionable results...
