ProvenRun has joined GlobalPlatform, the organization that standardizes the management of applications on secure chip technology, as a Participating Member. The France-based company helps its customers to meet the security challenges of mobile computing, embedded systems and the Internet of Things (IoT) with a complete software development ‘toolchain’ tailored to prove software for security and key ‘off-the-shelf’ security proven software components.
As a Participating Member, ProvenRun has chosen to contribute to the GlobalPlatform Device Committee, assisting its work to manage, prioritize, develop, maintain and evolve specifications for the Trusted Execution Environment (TEE). The GlobalPlatform Device Committee is working to define an open security architecture for consumer and connected devices to enable the development and deployment of secure applications from multiple service providers.
Dominique Bolignano, CEO of ProvenRun, adds: “Our work ensures that software components are as close as possible to zero defects and so we see a lot of synergy with the association’s platform approach. GlobalPlatform is bringing greater security to the TEE and the IoT where it holds a leading role in defining tomorrow’s security architectures. We will use our proven software component development expertise to support this activity and look forward to advancing a common understanding of the security requirements of key industry players and contributing towards the development of the TEE standards.”
Kevin Gillick, Executive Director of GlobalPlatform, comments: “GlobalPlatform is continuing to receive a huge amount of interest in its work to improve the mobile security and IoT ecosystems, and I am delighted to see increasing engagement in our work to facilitate the security of connected devices. We welcome the contributions from ProvenRun.”
