GlobalPlatform's objective is to create a standardized infrastructure which accelerates the deployment of secure applications and their associated assets, such as data and cryptographic keys while protecting them from physical or software attacks.

Who needs GlobalPlatform compliance?

Handset manufacturers need to comply with PTCRB specifications. Obtaining PTCRB Certification on a mobile device ensures compliance with cellular network standards within the PTCRB operators' networks. Consequently, PTCRB operators may block devices from their network if they are not PTCRB certified.

What can UL do for me?

UL provides end-to-end test services with regard to GlobalPlatform testing - from functional (Level 2) testing to security evaluation of hardware against GlobalPlatform specifications. Additionally, our test tools for mobile handset and chip testing are qualified by GlobalPlatform.
