GlobalPlatform News – Spring Meetings, SAE Engagement, Launching GP Women and more

Letter from GlobalPlatform’s Executive Director

We are making final preparations for our Spring Meetings, taking place in San Diego, USA from March 27 to March 31.

During these meetings we will progress our work on SAM, SESIP, Automotive, SBOM and much more.

For example, on Automotive, we have been working on assessing the alignment between GlobalPlatform specifications and the Society of Automotive Engineering (SAE) standards for secure execution environments. We will be finalizing our position at the Automotive Task Force meeting on March 29. This work is essential for the joint meeting we will be holding with SAE on April 21, alongside the WCX World Congress Expo in Troy, MI.

We will also be launching our GP Women initiative on March 30 and I am excited to announce that Nicola Palmer, Chief Technology Ambassador, Verizon, will be joining as a keynote speaker. Nicola was named in the top 10 influencers list for Mobile DE&I this year and is a leader within the ecosystem.

We invite you to take advantage of this time together to further the work of our committees and task forces and join the cross collaboration that is so important. Don’t forget to register on the member workspace here, where you can also see the meeting schedule and hotel booking details.

I would also like to highlight several important Task Force initiatives that you may be interested in joining. In May, we will host our first eID Wallet Seminar in Brussels, Belgium. In parallel, a new whitepaper is being developed by the Software Bill of Materials (SBOM) Task Force, where we are actively looking for more expert contributions. You can read more on each of these initiatives below.

As always, I welcome your feedback and am looking forward to seeing you in San Diego. Your contributions are what makes GlobalPlatform’s work relevant and impactful.

Automotive Task Force, SAE, AutoSAR and more

GlobalPlatform is currently finalizing our official relationships with SAE and AUTOSAR. We have also joined the AUTOISAC community and have an active MoU with the Car Connectivity Consortium.

Please do attend the Automotive Task Force meeting on Wednesday, 29 March in San Diego where we will be finalizing our positions on key issues to discuss with SAE. As a reminder, we will also host our first joint meeting with SAE on April 21 alongside the WCX World Congress Experience in Troy, MI. Please note places are limited and priority will be given to the Automotive Task Force contributors.

New eID Wallet and SBOM initiatives 

GlobalPlatform is built through collaboration. Our Task Forces are key to developing standards that enable convenient and trusted digital services across market sectors.

Our eID Wallet Task Force is hosting a seminar in Brussels, Belgium this May to demonstrate the importance of high security for eID schemes and the different ways that GlobalPlatform technologies can support this requirement. We will be looking for speaker suggestions and case studies that should be featured. Please contact me to get involved at

Our Software Bill Of Materials (SBOM) Task Force is developing a white paper with the objective of analyzing the impact and providing guidance on the deployment of SBOM. We are needing more of our members to participate and contribute to this output. I encourage you to join in this work and register on workspace. You are also welcome to identify experts in your organization we should be interviewing to make this whitepaper more robust.
