The Trusted Execution Environment (TEE) Committee is chaired by Richard Hayton from Trustonic. Full and participating GlobalPlatform members are eligible to contribute to this group.
The TEE Committee defines an open security architecture for consumer and connected devices using a TEE to secure those devices and enable the development and deployment of secure services from multiple service providers.
The GlobalPlatform TEE Management Framework
The document defines standard methods to manage the lifecycle of the TEE once it is active. In order to support the variety of usage of the TEE in today’s digital world, the document supports a number of deployment models, including: one or many actors; connected or unconnected devices; and one-to-one or one-to-many devices, as well as with symmetric and asymmetric cryptography.
GlobalPlatform TEE Protection Profile
Certified against Common Criteria under its Trusted Computing category, this document specifies the typical threats the hardware and software of the TEE needs to withstand. It also details the security objectives that are to be met in order to counter these threats and the security functional requirements that a TEE will have to comply with.
