GlobalPlatform’s technical priorities for 2022
In addition to driving the open-source implementation of TPS APIs to reduce complexity for device makers, the TPS committee plans to publish guidance on vulnerability analysis for software attacks in the next year.
Meanwhile, the TEE committee is supporting chip makers with the evolution of legacy TEEs to MCU technology. This includes a new TEE System Architecture document with support for Hypervisors.
The SE committee is working to define standardized schemes for OS updates. It will publish a complete set of documentation for the Virtual Primary Platform (VPP) and plans to release an extension of the GlobalPlatform SE Protection Profiles for FIDO 2.0 to reduce the cost of certification.
In parallel to the development of a SESIP IoT ecosystem grouping laboratory, vendors and Certification Bodies, the Security task force will continue to explore the impact of post quantum crypto. It will also join the IoTopia task force to address 5G device security.
Along with a focus on 5G, the IoTopia task force will continue to drive industry support, adoption and the continued development of its security framework for device lifecycle management.
The Japan task force will continue to engage regional stakeholders and standards bodies to promote adoption of GlobalPlatform and encourage technical contributions.
Similarly, the China task force is working to define regional data protection and IoT device requirements, with plans to publish a ‘market outlook’ whitepaper in 2022.
We would like to thank our members for their continued dedication.Read the meeting minutes
