GlobalPlatform Launches China Task Force

Forum for Chinese members to outline region's network security requirements

05 December – GlobalPlatform has launched a China Task Force (CTF) to give Chinese members, and all GlobalPlatform members with

business interests in China, a dedicated platform to identify and agree on requirements from the region and work directly with

Chinese industry and standards associations. The group will share its insights with GlobalPlatform's technical committees to

ensure that the organization's specifications continue to evolve in line with the needs of this market.
"The task force will promote secure chip technology adoption for the protection of sensitive digital services across sectors

including mobile, the internet of things (IoT), identity and premium content among others," comments Kevin Gillick, Executive

Director of GlobalPlatform. "A program of meetings and workshops, local language documents and promotional materials, and the

definition of region-specific use cases will support this goal."
Vicky Guo, China Academy of Information and Communication Technology (CAICT), has been appointed Chair of this group. She

combines 11 years of experience in the mobile security industry, focusing on Trusted Execution Environment (TEE) architecture

and technology, with experience of writing standards for the China Communications Standards Association (CCSA).
"It is a great honor to chair this task force and represent GlobalPlatform's Chinese Membership," comments Vicky.

"GlobalPlatform's Secure Element (SE) and TEE Specifications are at the forefront of trusted end-to-end service deployment and

application management globally. I look forward to working with my colleagues within this forum to support the continued

evolution of these standards and driving further adoption in China."
An influential and experienced group of Vice-Chairs have also been appointed to support the CTF. Alibaba's Fang Qiang will be

the group's third party payment and internal ecosystem services expert, and Victor An of DPLS Labs will lend his specialist

insight into banking and finance. Xinmiao Chang of Huawei's specialism is TEE, SE and emerging technologies, while Michael Lu

of Trustonic will bring his expertise in premium content and digital rights management (DRM).
"There is a huge appetite for standardization in areas relating to GlobalPlatform technologies in China," adds Kevin Gillick.

"As such, the group will bring value beyond our Chinese membership; many, if not all, GlobalPlatform Members have an interest

in the Chinese market so the benefits of this activity will be far reaching. The CTF has been created on the back of

exceptional growth in numbers of, and engagement from, members in China and will provide a valuable platform to further

membership growth in the region. Undoubtedly, the group, reflecting requirements from the Chinese market, will help drive

innovation across our technologies."
