  • SE. GlobalPlatform's advanced and stable Card Specification v2.2 supports the implementation and management of tamper-resistant chips - such as smart cards and SEs. This supports the deployment of contactless NFC enabled services to mobile devices, identity (ID) documents and advanced services onto smart cards, for example payments, transit or loyalty.


  • TEE. GlobalPlatform's work to standardize the TEE - a secure area that resides in the main processor of a connected device which ensures that sensitive data is stored, processed and protected in a trusted environment - supports the needs of smart device stakeholders, such as smartphone and tablet application developers and device manufacturers. The advancement of this technology is crucial for mobile wallets, NFC payment implementations, premium content protection and bring your own device (BYOD) initiatives.

  • Messaging. GlobalPlatform clarifies how market participants from the finance, mobile NFC, government and transit sectors can connect their backend systems to the SE, TEE and any other actor within a secure application's ecosystem. This is achieved by defining 'who' is responsible for 'what' and agreeing the 'language' (messages) that will be used. GlobalPlatform Mobile Messaging can be used over-the-air via a mobile network as well as over-the-internet using the cloud environment. This supports trusted service managers (TSMs), as well as the issuance and personalization of secure chip and TEE technology.
