GlobalPlatform has established strong collaborative relationships with relevant industry partners across the world, from international standards organizations to regional industry bodies. This collaboration is key to realizing our vision of fully open ecosystems that efficiently deliver innovative digital services across all vertical markets, while providing greater security, privacy, simplicity, and convenience for the user.
“As the secure mobile ecosystem continues to evolve and expand, the OMAPI Specification has the potential to play an ever greater role in defining how secure and trusted applications across many platforms, in addition to Android, can utilize the SE to offer enhanced security benefits. After very careful consideration, the SIMalliance Board has concluded that transferring the specification to GlobalPlatform is the best way to preserve the integrity of the OMAPI Specification and ensure it is optimized to expand future SE access across applications and devices. This decision has been made easier thanks to GlobalPlatform’s position as an active specifications development body, which will increase opportunities for the integration of OMAPI with other relevant technology, as well as the organization’s unwavering commitment to developing complementary specifications and certification programs.”- Hervé Pierre, Chairman, SIMalliance
“We embrace every opportunity to work with associations, such as GlobalPlatform, that share a common desire to improve online authentication through the development of open, scalable industry standards. SE and TEE technology plays an important role in isolating and protecting sensitive applications, and there is real value to the market in bringing these standards together. We look forward to sharing further updates as this activity progresses.”- Brett McDowell, Executive Director, FIDO Alliance
“The benefits of a common approach [to testing] can only be realized if there is common interpretation and application of the specification. Businesses investing in Embedded SIM solutions will be assured that products qualified by the GlobalPlatform scheme will deliver the same level of functional integrity and security as the traditional removable SIM.”- Gloria Trujillo, Technology Director, GSMA
