GlobalPlatform for Laboratories

GlobalPlatform trains and supports laboratories to offer accredited functional and security testing services that promote trust and security for devices and digital services.

LabsLaboratories can work with GlobalPlatform to offer the latest security and product evaluations, demonstrate expertise and differentiate services with potential customers to generate new revenues.

With GlobalPlatform’s independent functional and security programs, laboratories can operate and manage schemes that verify product adherence to GlobalPlatform Specifications, market-specific configurations and security levels.

What Does GlobalPlatform Offer Laboratories?

By becoming accredited in line with GlobalPlatform Specifications, functional and security test laboratories can deliver essential, independent validation services to manufacturers and OEMs in multiple markets, generating new revenue. These certification services help promote open and collaborative ecosystems where devices and digital services can be trusted and securely managed throughout their lifecycle.

Laboratories can use GlobalPlatform’s Secure Element (SE) and Trusted Execution Enviroment (TEE) Specifications to clarify the required security levels to protect against attacks, and its protection profiles to carry out evaluations that maximize the value of their services to device makers and digital service providers.

GlobalPlatform’s industry-recognized accreditation schemes are developed in collaboration with global and regional partners, and referenced by EMVCo, FIDO, GSMA and other industry bodies around the world. By becoming GlobalPlatform-certified, functional and security test laboratories can deliver essential, independent validation services to silicon vendors, device makers, and developers across markets.

GlobalPlatform is also creating new opportunities for laboratories. The organization is using its extensive experience in establishing and managing certification bodies and schemes to support the adoption of the Security Evaluation Standard for IoT Platforms (SESIP) Methodology, a flexible and efficient security evaluation methodology dedicated to addressing the complexity of the IoT ecosystem. GlobalPlatform is creating new busines opportunities and providing laboratories with the guidance and documentation they need to provide an efficient and swift solution for IoT device certification.

GlobalPlatform provides a forum to engage on the latest threats and innovations to ensure testing and evaluation services that meet new and evolving requirements.

Laboratories, certification bodies and testing tool service providers from across the world partner with GlobalPlatform to share expertise and to align respective standardization and certification initiatives to support market adoption.

Laboratories can join relevant groups to contribute their implementation knowledge to developing and enhancing GlobalPlatform’s certification programs, specifications, evaluation methodologies and testing tools.
