GlobalPlatform technical documentation

This update of GlobalPlatform Card Specification Amendment F: Secure Channel Protocol 11 contains an alignment with the recently published SCP03 on longer checksums plus a few other clarifications.

This new version of GlobalPlatform Card Specification Amendment I (SEMS) provides better support for ELF Upgrade (as described in Amendment H), introduces new parameters offering additional control of authorized operations, and provides several clarifications.

This Virtual Primary Platform (VPP) encapsulates a technology dependent part of a Tamper Resistant Element (TRE) named the Primary Platform, offering the lowest level of virtualization of critical resources via an API for managing firmware. This interface enables the loading, updating, enabling, disabling, and deleting of firmware. Specific access rights are needed to use the firmware management interface. The VPP specifications define an interface management system that facilitates communication between VPP apps, the VPP itself, the other components present within the device, and the outside world.

The four specifications of the VPP have been extensively reviewed in order to create the v2.0 GlobalPlatform specifications. Many corrections and clarifications have been introduced, as well as changes resulting from requests and discussions with ETSI TC SCP.

In order to facilitate comments,  the four documents (Concepts and Interfaces, Network Protocol, Firmware Format, Network Protocol Extension for the OFL) will be available for public review, one by one, in an extensive period ending 23 April 2021.
