SESIP Committee

The SESIP Committee is co-chaired by Georg Stütz from NXP Semiconductors and Philippe Gaudillat from STMicroelectronics. Full and participating GlobalPlatform members are eligible to contribute to this group.


SESIP provides a common and optimized approach for evaluating the security of components and platforms from connected products looking to meet the specific compliance, security, privacy, and scalability challenges of the evolving IoT ecosystem.

The purpose of the SESIP Committee is to set the strategy and deliver the required initiatives that will support the adoption and recognition of SESIP as a worldwide, multi-vertical scheme that simplifies security evaluation for OEMs, component manufacturers, and the whole ecosystem.

The primary focus of the Committee is to engage with regulators and the security evaluation ecosystem and discuss the value and applicability of the SESIP methodology as well as requirements for the future.


  • Identify markets, segments, and applications where SESIP can be used;
  • Assist in promoting SESIP activities aimed at fostering widespread adoption throughout the entire value chain:
    • Evangelize externally how SESIP can support the IoT ecosystem and demonstrate security and compliance with existing regulations;
    • Regional approach for regulator outreach with defining a strategy for the future of SESIP evolvement in each region;
    • Vertical approach for adoption across specific priority industries;
    • Drive activities that will result in mutual recognition in the ecosystem with the aim of supporting re-usability.
    • Liaise with external organizations on the way SESIP can be adopted by the industry, including standards and ecosystem players
  • Liaise with International or Regional Organizations (such as CEN/CENELEC JTC13), for future update, maintenance of the SESIP methodology;
  • Determine a self-sustaining strategy for GlobalPlatform to assist in advancing SESIP ecosystem development, technical projects, and future advocacy efforts;
  • Provide input to the SESIP Technical Working Group for further development of security profiles, mappings, other requirements or interpretation of methodology;
  • Provide input to the SESIP Ecosystem Adoption Working Group for focus regions, and verticals to develop the required MARCOM support;
  • Coordinate with the SESIP Governance Working group the harmonization of the methodology applicability, and mutual recognition across schemes from public and private origin.

Current priorities

The deliverables of the SESIP Committee consist of strategy and marketing plans, ecosystem development activities, and white papers that provide the necessary support to the defined objectives.
