GlobalPlatform has released a white paper to outline its technical contribution and commitment to the near field communication (NFC) mobile market. The document, which is free to download at www.globalplatform.org, outlines the technical foundation created by the international smart card specifications body for the management of multi-application, multi-actor and multi-business model NFC implementations. It also presents GlobalPlatform’s plans to develop future specifications for this market.
The white paper, entitled ‘The GlobalPlatform Proposition for NFC Mobile: Secure Element Management & Messaging’, details how GlobalPlatform Specifications are able to support all roles in the NFC ecosystem. It outlines the roles and responsibilities of each player in the maintenance of an end-to-end security chain, which is required for the secure management of over-the air applications between a service provider’s back office and the secure element on a chip.
To put the technology in context, the document additionally presents an overview of how GlobalPlatform technology can add value to different NFC business relationship models, referencing models which can be found – either in pilot or roll out stage – in the global marketplace. It ultimately aims to educate readers that a scalable and sustainable NFC ecosystem can only be realized through the promotion of standard communication, facilitation of interaction between new entities and the avoidance of proprietary solutions.
The white paper is of interest to parties involved in advancing the NFC ecosystem and participating in GlobalPlatform smart card NFC deployments.
