GlobalPlatform Card Technology Card Specification – Privacy Framework v0.0.0.24 and APIs
This document describes a framework based on the GlobalPlatform Card Specification [GPCS] that allows managing different privacy mechanisms (i.e. protection against traceability, protection of the communication) which remain under the control of the card issuer. In particular, it describes the concepts of Global Privacy Protocol (GPP), Global Master File (GMF) and OPEN Privacy Extension (OPEX). Two new supporting APIs are also defined which need to be reviewed together with this document, the "Secure Channel API" and the "Filesystem API".

GlobalPlatform Device Technology TEE Trusted User Interface High Level API v1.0.0.14 (target v1.1)
This specification is targeted at a TEE running within devices equipped with a display and optionally a keypad (e.g.  smartphone, tablet, set-top box). A Trusted User Interface API can be envisaged for other devices hosting a TEE but facilities specific to supporting such devices are out of scope of this specification.   Supported smartphones and tablets in this document have at least one touchscreen or one screen and one keyboard which MUST be wired and integral to the device. Remote peripherals are not considered in this specification.  It provides a range of interfaces with the look and feel under the control of the TEE and the contents provided by the TA.

GlobalPlatform Device Technology TEE System Architecture
This document explains the hardware and software architectures behind the TEE. It introduces TEE management and explains concepts relevant to TEE functional availability in a device.

This version of the TEE System Architecture has been extended to include the second phase of TEE standardization which introduced new API’s for supporting tasks such as Trusted User interface, SE and Sockets communications, and remote management for Trusted Applications. Further extensions of the TEE System Architecture are expected in subsequent phases, as described in the TEE White Paper; e.g. a more flexible Trusted User Interface API, biometrics fingerprint API, secure video content.

Card Multiple Contactless Card Emulation Environments – Managing Entity v0.0.0.6
The Managing Entity coordinates activities related to contactless applications on a Device containing multiple Card Emulation Environments. It allows activation and deactivation of contactless applications and setting contactless application priority across all the Card Emulation Environments. It resolves conflicts and consolidates the RF parameter settings to be forwarded to the NFC controller allowing the different Card Emulation Environments to run in parallel: Contactless applications can be accessed for contactless transactions independent of their location and without additional user interaction.
