Brightsight joins GlobalPlatform
published on December 9, 2014
Brightsight recently joined GlobalPlatform as a participating member. GlobalPlatform, the association that standardizes the management of applications on secure chip technology, has a central role in specifications of e.g. Secure Elements (SE) and Trusted Execution Environments (TEE) for products such as smart phones and mobile devices.
GlobalPlatform has started to define and develop a TEE Security Certification Program to facilitate the security evaluations of TEE implementations. The TEE Protection Profile was recently released. It was written to enable mobile security services such as content protection and payment. Brightsight, with its thirty years of experience in evaluating secure devices and secure chips in cards and mobile devices, thinks it can make a valuable contribution to bring the TEE Protection Profile evaluation in the TEE Security Certification Program further.
For Brightsight, with its strategy to actively broaden its accreditation portfolio, joining Global Platform was a logical step forward.
