Congratulations to the 2017 GlobalPlatform Stars:
Previous GlobalPlatform Stars:
TEE Committee: Jeremy O'Donoghue (Qualcomm) – “Making It
Mr. O’Donoghue provides constant constructive support on all issues in
the TEE space. He always provides useful feedback on open reviews, and
has stepped in as editor on a number of current documents, not all of
which are of direct interest to his company. He is a superb example of
an active participant member.
SE Committee: Masato Kita (FeliCa Networks, Inc.) –
Mr. Kita was a significant participant in the Multi-SE Working Group,
contributing in the elaboration of the Managing Entity specification. He
was involved throughout the entire process, and it took a long time to
finalize the specification due to the number of systems involved and
multiple technologies that have to work together. He also shared his
extensive technical knowledge and helped the group by reviewing the
specification to make it more consistent.
SE Committee: Ullrich Martini (Giesecke & Devrient) –
“Collaboration & Teamwork”
Mr. Martini has extensively contributed to the Card Specification
Working Group. Over the last year and a half in particular, he has
driven with outstanding engagement the SCP11c initiative. He has also
been a resource in educating the group members and developing the
Consumer IoT Task Force: Jon Rolf (U.S. DoD) – “Innovative
Mr. Rolf has been a key contributor to the Wearables Requirements
document. Not only has he significantly contributed to the use cases for
wearables, but he has consistently provided the group with a new and
fresh perspective. His input was particularly valuable as the DoD
already runs pilots around wearable authentication.
Security Task Force Nominee: Béatrice Peirani , (Gemalto) –
Ms. Peirani met the challenge to lead the Crypto Sub-Task Force.
During this period, the group published a list of all cryptographic
algorithms used in all GlobalPlatform SE and TEE specifications. In
addition, she examined and summarized the cryptographic recommendations
from National Agencies, and sorted all GlobalPlatform cryptographic
algorithms into categories mapped to the National Agencies’
recommendations. Even if the subject was sometimes controversial, she
led the group to a consensus and conclusion.
