Congratulations to the 2009 GlobalPlatform Stars:


GP3 Working Group: Olivier Potonniee - "Collaboration & Teamwork" category

This Star Award marks an important milestone in the development of GlobalPlatform technology. For more than two years, a dedicated team has worked on a specification that has catapulted GlobalPlatform into the arena of networked cards. We are talking about the Networked Framework, which we published 2 months ago. The person who pulled it all together, who organized multiple face-to-face meetings and conference calls, motivated his team, contributed his own contributions and verified ASN-1 structures is Mr. Potonniee.

Card Committee (CCWG): Roland Horsch – "Leadership" category

The special challenge of this working group was not just to coordinate GlobalPlatform members, but also to integrate an external company into the writing of a specification. Furthermore, the group needed to steer this company's work by using a new tool for creating a test specification towards solid test coverage of the UICC Configuration. Several hurdles had to be overcome, such as a change in the baseline, because the work on the test specification had already been started before the UICC Configuration was published. Now the first parts of the Test Specification have entered the review process, and so, we want to take this opportunity to present a Star Award to Mr. Horsch, Head of the Card Compliance Working Group.

Hadi Nahari, Paypal – "Making It Happen" category

Mr. Nahari joined GlobalPlatform about a year ago, and from the beginning he invested his energy in focusing discussions and steering them toward conclusions. Often, his presence was like new oil in the process. He also hosted meetings in locations that everyone liked. And, it seemed that a mere one working group was not enough for him, so in addition to the Card Specification Working Group, he also engaged himself in Certification issues. This Star Award goes to Mr. Nahari for his great start, and we hope to keep you active for many more years!
