GlobalPlatform launched its China Task Force (CTF) in the third quarter of
2016. The CTF gives Chinese members, and all GlobalPlatform members with
business interests in China, a dedicated platform to identify and agree
on requirements from the region and work directly with Chinese industry
and standards associations. The group will share its insights with
GlobalPlatform's technical committees to ensure that the organization's
specifications continue to evolve in line with the needs of this region.
If you are interested in contributing to the work of the task
force, please vis
it the website and join the roster.
Fast track process update
During the meetings
in Paris, GlobalPlatform launched a new Fast Track Process to expedite
the publication of technology developed by members outside of
GlobalPlatform and offer members another means to contribute to the
organization. Since this is a new and developing process, with some
details still to be fine-tuned, the first proposals presented during the
Paris member meetings are being used to evaluate and refine the process.
As such, we ask that members delay submissions to the Fast Track Process
until this fine-tuning is complete.
We will update you as this develops but please
feel free to contact the
Secretariat with any questions.

- GlobalPlatform IoT Task Force secure boot and
remote attestation functionalities on GlobalPlatform / Java Card
architecture version v0.0.1.19 - This document identifies useful IoT
functionalities that are not already supported by GlobalPlatform Secure
Elements, and describes how they can be implemented and deployed to a
secure chip platform that supports the GlobalPlatform Card specifications
and the Java Card Platform. It describes an interoperable way of
implementing and deploying the functionalities as a Java Card Applet and
deploying them on an embedded secure chip. This could include a
description of how the TPM specifications from the Trusted Computing
Group can be combined with GlobalPlatform / Java Card technologies to
increase the value of the secure chip, especially for M2M and IoT
The deadline for members' comments has been extended
