GlobalPlatform Expands Annual Seminar in China

GlobalPlatform Expands Annual Seminar in China

The new ‘Security in our Connected World’ event will focus on the implementation and value of GlobalPlatform technology in real world use cases 

Following the success of its 2017 event, GlobalPlatform, the standard for secure digital services and devices, will return to China for a second year with an expanded scope.

On 19 September 2018, the ‘Security in our Connected World’ seminar will focus on Secure Element (SE) and Trusted Execution Environment (TEE) technologies and the Device Trust Architecture (DTA) framework, and in particular their real-world IoT technical and business use cases.

The agenda will bring together the foremost SE and TEE subject matter experts from organizations such as Alibaba, Applus+, Baidu, Brightsight, CAICT, China Unicom, Gemalto, Huawei, Infineon, Oracle, STMicroelectronics, Tencent and Trustonic. These industry leaders will showcase state-of-the-art device and cloud security and solutions that address today’s threat landscape across the following key use cases and more:

  • IoT (consumer, industrial and enterprise)
  • Premium content protection & digital rights management (DRM)
  • Digital fiat currency
  • Convergence of SIM and eSIM
  • Security and certification
  • Lessons learned from live projects

The event will also feature real world best practice and methodologies in line with regional requirements including IFAA, ICA and ICFNR, and explore China’s significant role in driving the adoption of GlobalPlatform’s core specifications.

“Security, privacy and trust need to be approached holistically, and from the start of projects,” comments Kevin Gillick, GlobalPlatform Executive Director. “To do this effectively, device manufacturers, service providers and cloud platform providers need to be able to choose the proper level of security to fit their use cases. As GlobalPlatform secure components can be used separately or combined to address these different requirements, we needed to expand the scope of our annual event.

“Last year’s event was bigger and better than ever before, with more than 200 delegates from 85 companies and 13 different countries. Our expansive and growing member base in China and the Asian region is committed to building an ecosystem where digital services and devices can be trusted and managed securely, so we are hugely excited to see the innovations that will be brought forward under this expanded scope.”

GlobalPlatform and its 100+ members develop standards that support security, privacy and trust for connected devices and services. The event will bring together service providers (including financial institutions, remote content distributors and companies working to develop enterprise solutions), platform providers, software vendors, device manufacturers and mobile network operators from across the globe.

GlobalPlatform would like to thank its sponsors, Gemalto, Huawei, Infineon, STMicroelectronics, Trustkernel, Trustonic and government supporter CAICT.
