GlobalPlatform’s certification program is designed to evolve as new technologies are introduced. Test tools, protection profiles and frameworks are continuously updated according to new recommendations or security threats.
Building trust through internationally recognized and independent certification.
GlobalPlatform’s functional and security certification schemes enable stakeholders to demonstrate compliance with market requirements or regulations to propagate trust. This is achieved by verifying products’ adherence to the association’s technical specifications, market-specific configurations and security levels. With a GlobalPlatform certificate, stakeholders can be assured that a solution can be trusted to perform as it should while supporting their business, security, regulatory and data protection needs.
The program is independently operated by a dedicated Certification Secretariat. It is referenced by EMVCo, GSMA and other industry bodies, with testing performed on certified tools provided by GlobalPlatform-approved laboratories globally.

Verify the security of SE and TEE products
GlobalPlatform security certification evaluates products in line with Common Criteria-recognized protection profiles. It ensures that secure components meet the required levels of security defined for a particular service, enabling service providers to confidently and effectively manage risk and comply with industry requirements. To assist the market in managing varying security requirements, GlobalPlatform has structured the program under three security levels. Each level is independent of the technology and denotes the ranked levels of threats and attacks that the security certified secure component will defend against.
This simple framework allows future technologies and solutions to be added under these levels to support the ecosystem as requirements evolve.Learn more
