Certified Trust – A Workshop on Certification Schemes for Taiwan’s IoT Security Ecosystem

In August 2022 (Tentative), GlobalPlatform, with support of Primary Sponsor and Full Member Winbond, is hosting an in-person and virtual workshop on Certified Trust. This free-to-attend workshop takes place in Taipei, Taiwan and is open to GlobalPlatform members and non-members.



The national significance of this workshop

To advance Taiwan’s position as a critical force in the global economy, the Taiwanese Government has introduced several important programs. This includes the ‘5+2 Innovative Industries Program’ which covers seven industries including intelligent machinery and Asia Silicon Valley. The government has also announced its ‘National Security 2.0 Strategy’ for 2021.

Outlining cybersecurity as a national priority is an opportunity for Taiwan’s technology sector to become a hot zone for the development of secure, trusted technologies at home and abroad. Through the adoption of internationally recognized standards that ensure security-by-design, as well as trust through certification, Taiwan’s semiconductor and ICT industries have already started to distinguish their commitment to cybersecurity. They are poised now to secure a central role in global supply chains and establish Taiwan as a major base for the development of next generation technologies, including IoT, 5G and AI.

The success of this will ultimately hinge on the development of an effective cybersecurity industry. Creating cybersecurity systems and an industrial chain that can integrate with 5G in vertical industries will help bolster digital transformation across Taiwan and garner the trust of global markets.

Achieving this, however, rests on Taiwan establishing strong connections to global Standards Development Organizations (SDOs) and certification bodies. GlobalPlatform is one such association. It has enabling technologies and certifications that can help Taiwan achieve its mission, and our workshop is an important step on this journey.

With a mix of local on-site speakers and virtual presenters, delegates attending this workshop will hear from and interact with cybersecurity experts. The workshop will explore the value of certification and provide technical and business-oriented insights to help delegates understand market and business needs.

Workshop Overview

The growing number of IoT products, and the complexity of these connected things, introduces new challenges to the traditional secure development and evaluation process. IoT products are made up of multiple components, which are developed by multiple players, many of which are new to security. A myriad of different regulations and certification frameworks create an added layer of complexity for the IoT vendors, developers and service providers tasked with demonstrating the security capability of their products.

This Workshop will showcase a path to Certified Trust by providing the latest information about Secure Component technologies and security evaluation methodologies, specifically designed to support IoT device makers and certification bodies to establish their own IoT device security and certification schemes.

The Workshop will bring forward security expertise not only from GlobalPlatform, but also from prestigious Taiwan cybersecurity research institutes Industrial Technology Research Institute (ITRI) and Institute for Information Industry (III), and government security laboratory Telecom Technology Center (TTC).  The Workshop will emphasize solutions that are available today, giving delegates the tools and consultation they need to have an immediate impact on their own company IoT initiatives.
