GlobalPlatform Trusted Execution Environment Spec Adoption to Reach 10 Billion

November 21, 2018 / IoT.Business.News

GlobalPlatform, the standard for secure digital services and devices, has reported a 25 percent increase in the number of Trusted Execution Environment (TEE)-enabled processors being shipped quarterly, year-on-year. At this rate, it is expected some 10 billion devices will feature TEE-enabled processors by the end of 2018. “The TEE is not a new concept, and standardization of the technology has been driven by our organization to support mass market deployment,” explains GlobalPlatform’s Technical Director, Gil Bernabeu. “The fragmentation caused by the deployment of proprietary TEEs makes life hard for app and service developers as they need to launch and maintain multiple versions of their apps and evaluate the security of each TEE platform. This is resource intensive and unsustainable.”
