GlobalPlatform News – ISO/IEC 17065, SESIP and eID Wallets in Europe

Letter from GlobalPlatform’s Executive Director

This past month we have extended our ISO/IEC 17065 accreditation. This demonstrates our commitment to delivering state-of-the-art functional and security certification programs. You can read more about this accreditation below.

As we continue to enhance our SESIP methodology offering, I’m pleased to share that SGS Brightsight CB has recently joined the program to become a GlobalPlatform SESIP CB. We have also officially launched our SESIP training program and started scheduling trainings with interested companies. If you want to have a team in your company trained do not hesitate in getting in touch with me.

Last week, we held our 2nd Cybersecurity Vehicle Forum in Plymouth, MI. We hosted over 60 people and had participation from 8 automotive OEMs and 8 tier 1 companies. The event included discussion of GlobalPlatform TEEs and SEs for automotive use cases as well as opportunities for cross-industry collaboration with SAE and AUTOSAR. Read the event summary and access the presentations here.

In other member news, we are pleased to announce that Germany’s Federal Office for Information Security (BSI) has upgraded its membership to become our newest Full Member. We look forward to their valuable participation, especially in advancing trusted EUDI wallet solutions.

Finally, as we come towards the end of our fiscal year, we’ll soon be publishing our Annual Report. This report highlights the achievements of our organization over the past 12 months and outlines our future vision and the new initiatives we are driving. The report will be accompanied by your membership renewal invoice for fiscal year 2023.
