Industry association responds to market
demand following explosion
of digital service innovation in China
July 31, 2017 – GlobalPlatform, the
standard for secure digital services and devices, has announced that its
2017 Trusted Execution Environment (TEE) Seminar will take place in
Beijing on September 12. While the event is in its fifth year, this will
be the inaugural Chinese event. The agenda – with keynote presentations
from Alibaba and the China Academy of Information and Communications
Technology (CAICT) – will address the accelerated rate of digital
service and device innovation in the region, a key driver in the growth
of TEE globally. Currently, more than a billion processors that can
support TEE are shipped worldwide per quarter.
“After four successful years of hosting
the GlobalPlatform TEE Seminar in Silicon Valley, the decision to
relocate for 2017 was driven by strong demand for a Chinese TEE
event,” comments Kevin Gillick, Executive Director of
GlobalPlatform. “We have an expansive and growing member base in
China and the region is committed to building an ecosystem where digital
services and devices can be trusted and managed securely.”
The seminar, titled ‘Providing Security for Digital Services and Devices’,
will bring together the industry’s foremost TEE subject matter
experts from around the globe to showcase state-of-the-art device
security and demonstrate the evolution of the threat landscape across
the following key trends and use cases:
- Payments – protecting payments as a digital
- Digital Rights Management (DRM) – the application
of TEE technology for DRM protection across multiple devices and in line
with specific regional requirements.
- Future trends and emerging applications – the
TEE’s security and privacy proposition for implementations
including connected cars and IoT objects.
- Certification learnings from live projects –
advice and discussion on real world certification best practice and
methodologies in line with regional requirements and industry baselines
including IFAA, TAF and FIDO.
“The popularity of TEE technology reflects the growing
importance of connected devices like smartphones, set top boxes,
wearables, connected cars and other IoT devices. However, new
advancements bring new security challenges for device manufacturers and
service providers who need to protect their applications. This is where
the TEE adds value. So, as China is one of the most advanced secure
digital service ecosystems, delegates can now hear from and speak to
people involved in implementing the technology for the benefit of
consumers, governments and corporations,” concludes Kevin.
GlobalPlatform and its 100+ members develop standards that support the
evolution of the TEE ecosystem. The event will bring together service
providers (including financial institutions, remote content distributors
and companies working to develop enterprise solutions), platform
providers, software vendors, device manufacturers and mobile network
operators from across the globe.
GlobalPlatform would like to thank its sponsors ARM, DPLS Labs, FIME,
HiSilicon, Imagination Technologies, Riscure, Trustonic and Government

Notes to editors:
GlobalPlatform is a non-profit industry association driven by over 100
member companies. Members share a common goal to develop
GlobalPlatform’s specifications, which are today highly regarded
as the international standard for enabling digital services and devices
to be trusted and securely managed throughout their lifecycle.
GlobalPlatform protects digital services by standardizing and
certifying a security hardware/firmware combination, known as a secure
component, which acts as an on-device trust anchor. This facilitates
collaboration between service providers and device manufacturers,
empowering them to ensure adequate security within all devices to
protect against threats.
GlobalPlatform specifications also standardize the secure management
of digital services and devices once deployed in the field. Altogether,
GlobalPlatform enables convenient and secure digital service delivery to
end users, while supporting privacy, regardless of market sector or
device type. Devices secured by GlobalPlatform include smartphones,
tablets, set top boxes, wearables, connected cars, other Internet-of-
Things (IoT) devices and smart cards.
The technology’s widespread global adoption delivers cost and
time-to-market efficiencies to all. Market sectors adopting
GlobalPlatform technology include payments, telecoms, transportation,
automotive, smart cities, smart home, utilities, healthcare, premium
content, government and enterprise ID.
GlobalPlatform’s legacy of successful technical specification
development is thanks to two decades of energetic and effective industry
collaboration. Members influence the organization’s output
through participation in technical committees, working groups and
strategic task forces. GlobalPlatform technology is developed in
collaboration with numerous standards bodies and regional organizations
across the world, to ensure continual relevance and timeliness. For more
