Privacy Framework v1.0 Feb 2017

This document describes a framework based on the GlobalPlatform Card Specification [GPCS] that allows managing different privacy mechanisms (i.e. protection against traceability, protection of the communication) which remain under the control of the card issuer. In particular, it describes the concepts of Global Privacy Protocol (GPP), Global Master File (GMF) and OPEN Privacy Extension (OPEX). Supporting APIs will be published in a separate package.

The zip file contains a set of four new APIs related to secure channels, privacy protocols and global filesystem features. They define:

- new enhanced interfaces for Secure Channel Protocol implementations
- additional interfaces relating to Privacy Protocol implementations
- additional interfaces relating to the usage of a file system as required in some Privacy Protocols
