The TEEs value proposition for established use cases, such as payment and DRM, are more readily understood by service and device providers. We will explore those use cases a bit later in the seminar. But first, we turn our attention to the world of IoT and connected objects, and the need for ubiquitous security, regardless of the use case.

ARM TrustZone & TEE technology grew out of a need to provide hardware-based security to mobile phones. Today they work together to help protect online services such as payments, premium content, and improved UX on billions of smart connected devices.

TrustZone security extensions have been available in every ARM application processor since 2005. ARM will discuss how this growing availability of TrustZone enabled chips, and TEE standardization through GlobalPlatform, has provided a much-needed security layer against common attacks; the TEE capability developed in China that provides a common security language; and the next steps for this technology, including Over the Air (OTA) management of trusted software.

This presentation looks at key market and technology trends in the connected car industry, as well as the prime emerging threats.  

As cars become more connected, the safety-critical systems on CANBUS, peripheral entertainment, functional components and both internal and external communication networks are becoming more accessible to potential attackers. We will discuss the overall security principles for a connected car security platform to enable it to address the threat areas of user data privacy, unauthorised access to the various systems and access to CANBUS. This presentation further explores how the TEE is being used by Trustonic and its partners to tackle some of these potential security issues.

Along with the development of IoT and its broad use in daily life, security is becoming much more important. Furthermore, the security of IoT involves people, devices and their behaviors. Due to the continuous and aggravating fragmentation of hardware and scenarios of IoT, it is better to initiate systematic research on IoT security and relevant standardization of the technology.

  • Chunpei Feng, Senior Director of Security Ecosystem, Alibaba


Payment as a digital service in China is widely used and well accepted. Concerns remain, however, about security and mobile payment application vulnerability when relying on the security protections available in Rich OS environments. In addition to security, it is very important that service providers increase the convenience of mobile identity authentication. In this session, you’ll learn about how the TEE is enhancing mobile payment security and authentication, and is providing a platform for delivering additional features and services.

Ant Financial is dedicated to creating an open ecosystem that provides inclusive access to financial services, including to small and micro enterprises and individual consumers. To realize this goal, mobile identity authentication must be more convenient, as well as more secure.

During this presentation, Ant Financial will give its understanding of inclusive finance; present the application of biometrics and TEE/SE technologies in mobile authentication; and outline future opportunities for collaboration with GlobalPlatform in this area.

BMFIA will discuss the financial use cases, banking requirements and TEE specifications that are important to its work with mobile phones in Bangladesh. The discussion will include Trusted UI, the future of fintech and mobile financial services, and trends in TEE, SE, and terminal security for banks.
