Industry association responds to market demand following explosion of
digital service innovation in China

BEIJING–(BUSINESS WIRE)–GlobalPlatform, the standard for secure digital services and devices,
has announced that its 2017 Trusted
Execution Environment (TEE) Seminar
will take place in Beijing on
September 12. While the event is in its fifth year, this will be the
inaugural Chinese event. The agenda – with keynote presentations from
Alibaba and the China Academy of Information and Communications
Technology (CAICT) – will address the accelerated rate of digital
service and device innovation in the region, a key driver in the growth
of TEE globally. Currently, more than a billion processors that can
support TEE are shipped worldwide per quarter.

“After four successful years of hosting the GlobalPlatform TEE Seminar
in Silicon Valley, the decision to relocate for 2017 was driven by
strong demand for a Chinese TEE event,” comments Kevin Gillick,
Executive Director of GlobalPlatform. “We have an expansive and growing
member base in China and the region is committed to building an
ecosystem where digital services and devices can be trusted and managed

The seminar, titled ‘Providing
Security for Digital Services and Devices’
, will bring together the
industry’s foremost TEE subject matter experts from around the globe to
showcase state-of-the-art device security and demonstrate the evolution
of the threat landscape across the following key trends and use cases:

  • Payments – protecting payments as a digital service.
  • Digital Rights Management (DRM) – the application of TEE
    technology for DRM protection across multiple devices and in line with
    specific regional requirements.
  • Future trends and emerging applications – the TEE’s security
    and privacy proposition for implementations including connected cars
    and IoT objects.
  • Certification learnings from live projects – advice and
    discussion on real world certification best practice and methodologies
    in line with regional requirements and industry baselines including
    IFAA, TAF and FIDO.

“The popularity of TEE technology reflects the growing importance of
connected devices like smartphones, set top boxes, wearables, connected
cars and other IoT devices. However, new advancements bring new security
challenges for device manufacturers and service providers who need to
protect their applications. This is where the TEE adds value. So, as
China is one of the most advanced secure digital service ecosystems,
delegates can now hear from and speak to people involved in implementing
the technology for the benefit of consumers, governments and
corporations,” concludes Kevin.

GlobalPlatform and its 100+ members develop standards that support the
evolution of the TEE ecosystem. 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 ARM, DPLS Labs, FIME,
HiSilicon, Imagination Technologies, Riscure, Trustonic and Government
supporter CAICT.
