GlobalPlatform partners with RISC-V International to enhance security design of IoT devices
GlobalPlatform announced a partnership with fellow industry association, RISC-V to accelerate the development of standards for hardware-based components, such as Trusted Execution Environments (TEEs), in IoT devices.
The partnership allows GlobalPlatform and RISC-V to align specifications and exchange information on hardware vulnerabilities and the functionalities required to overcome them. The short to mid-term goals of the partnership will focus on APIs for TEEs and Microcontroller (MCU) protection profiles.
