GlobalPlatform Expands Annual Seminar in China

The new ‘Security in our Connected World’ event will focus on the
implementation and value of GlobalPlatform technology in real world use

BEIJING–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#Blockchain–Following the success of its 2017 event, GlobalPlatform, the standard
for secure digital services and devices, will return to China for a
second year with an expanded scope. On 19 September 2018, the ‘Security
in our Connected World’
seminar will focus on Secure Element (SE)
and Trusted Execution Environment (TEE) technologies and the Device
Trust Architecture (DTA) framework, and in particular their real-world
IoT technical and business use cases.

The agenda will bring together the foremost SE and TEE subject matter
experts from organizations such as Alibaba, Baidu, Gemalto, Huawei,
Infineon, and Tencent. These industry leaders will showcase
state-of-the-art device and cloud security and solutions that address
today’s threat landscape across the following key use cases and more:

– IoT (consumer, industrial and enterprise)

– Premium content protection & digital rights management (DRM)

– Blockchain and fiat currency

– Convergence of SIM and eSIM

– Certification

– Lessons learned from live projects

The event will also feature real world best practice and methodologies
in line with regional requirements including IFAA, ICA and ICFNR, and
explore China’s significant role in driving the adoption of
GlobalPlatform’s core specifications.

“Security, privacy and trust need to be approached holistically, and
from the start of projects,” comments Kevin Gillick, GlobalPlatform
Executive Director. “To do this effectively, device manufacturers,
service providers and cloud platform providers need to be able to choose
the proper level of security to fit their use cases. As GlobalPlatform
secure components can be used separately or combined to address these
different requirements, we needed to expand the scope of our annual

“Last year’s event was bigger and better than ever before, with more
than 200 delegates from 85 companies and 13 different countries’. Our
expansive and growing member base in China and the Asian region is
committed to building an ecosystem where digital services and devices
can be trusted and managed securely, so we are hugely excited to see the
innovations that will be brought forward under this expanded scope.”

GlobalPlatform and its 100+ members develop standards that support
security, privacy and trust for connected devices and services. 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, Gemalto, Huawei,
Infineon and Trustkernel.

About GlobalPlatform

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.

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 information visit
