GlobalPlatform News – Annual Report, TEEs and Automotive

Letter from GlobalPlatform’s Executive Director

This month we have published our 2023 annual report in which we explore GlobalPlatform’s accomplishments, new initiatives and coming priorities. Key among these is the creation of two new Task Forces – Automotive and eID Wallet – which are bringing together their respective ecosystems to drive collaboration and impactful results.

Accompanying the annual report is your GlobalPlatform membership renewal invoice for our fiscal year 2024, which commences on October 01, 2023. If you have any questions while processing this payment, please contact

We have an exciting program of events coming up in the next few months. Registrations are now open for our Tokyo Cybersecurity Vehicle Forum, taking place September 14. Following that, we will be in Singapore on October 19th to meet with the Cybersecurity Singapore Agency and are inviting our members to join us (more details below). We are also very excited to announce that we will be in China during the week of 23rd October to host a special meeting of our China Task Force and a Cybersecurity Vehicle Forum. Finally, save the date for our annual Fall Meetings from November 6-10 in Athens, Greece. Stay tuned for more details!

In his final contribution to our organization before his retirement, long time GlobalPlatform contributor and Chair of the TEE Specification Working Group, Don Felton, has recorded a video in which he explores the origins of TEEs, its evolution through the years, and the work GlobalPlatform is doing to drive it forward. Many thanks for all your work throughout the years, Don, and we wish you all the best with your retirement!

Don’s retirement means that we are now accepting applications for a new Chair of the TEE Specification Working Group. Contact us to register your interest:

Finally, we are pleased to welcome Quarkslab to GlobalPlatform as a Participating Member. Quarkslab combines offensive and defensive security in application protection, helping companies and governmental organizations adopt a new security posture: forcing attackers, not defenders, to constantly adapt.

VIDEO: Trusted Execution Environment; Past and Future 

The Trusted Execution Environment (TEE) is a secure area in a device that ensures sensitive data is stored, processed and protected in an isolated and trusted environment. As such, it offers protection against attacks generated in the rest of the device and even other actors inside the TEE.

In this video, Don Felton - Principal Security Architect at Trustonic and Chair of the GlobalPlatform TEE Specification Working Group – explores the origins of TEEs, its evolution through the years and the work that GlobalPlatform is doing to continue driving it forward.

Invitation to Present Your SESIP Initiatives to the Cybersecurity Singapore Agency

GlobalPlatform will meet with the Cybersecurity Singapore Agency (CSA) at this year’s Singapore International Cyber Week, to discuss how SESIP can meet the evaluation needs of its Cybersecurity Labelling Scheme (CLS) scheme for consumer smart devices. The scheme is part of Singapore’s efforts to improve IoT security, raise overall cyber hygiene levels and better secure Singapore's cyberspace.

The goal of the meeting is to help Singapore become the first national authority to issue SESIP certificates - but we need your help.

We are calling on members to join us in Singapore to present their SESIP initiatives, and help us expand the reach of the methodology for the benefit of the entire device security ecosystem.
