TEE Certification Scheme
GlobalPlatform is committed to ensuring a standardized level of
security for embedded applications on secure chip technology. It has
developed an open and thoroughly evaluated trusted execution environment
(TEE) ecosystem with accredited laboratories and certified products.
The GlobalPlatform TEE Certification Scheme, managed by its TEE
Security Evaluation Secretariat, enables vendors to confirm conformance
of their TEE products to the organization’s TEE Protection Profile, through
independent security evaluation.
The scheme aims to accelerate the deployment of certified TEE products
and promote a globally interoperable connected device ecosystem.
Additionally, it will enable service providers to confidently and
effectively manage risk, by ensuring that there is a consistent level of
security across connected devices.
GlobalPlatform also collaborates with the widely recognized and
established secure element certification scheme.
While evaluation of a product’s conformance to required security
levels is a critical action for service providers who want to manage risk
effectively, compliance testing is also critically important to ensure
that their services will behave as intended when deployed in the field.
To support this, GlobalPlatform also offers functional evaluation
activity for the secure element (SE) and the TEE. Read more at the Compliance page .
GlobalPlatform Product Evaluation
A product must be submitted to a GlobalPlatform accredited laboratory and competently
perform a number of tests to meet the security evaluation criteria. The
laboratory will send its test report to the GlobalPlatform TEE Security
Evaluation Secretariat for evaluation and issuance of a certificate.
GlobalPlatform Laboratory Accreditation
To achieve qualified status, GlobalPlatform member laboratories must
successfully meet the criteria set forth by GlobalPlatform. A test
laboratory must also have the expertise to confirm a product's
compliance to GlobalPlatform Configurations, and can offer third party
validation that is neutral and results that are verifiable.
