International smart card specifications body, GlobalPlatform, will be
delivering a half day workshop at Cards & Payments Asia 2007, entitled:
Applying GlobalPlatform Specifications in Mobile Payment
Applications. To be held on the afternoon of Thursday 26 April, the
exclusive masterclass is a value-added complementary session open to all
delegates attending the conference.
Following an introduction to GlobalPlatform, the session will educate
participants on how GlobalPlatform smart card specifications are being
applied to the financial payment and mobile sectors, and the unique
position of the technology to accelerate the convergence of these
applications in a highly secure and standardized manner.
Kevin Gillick, Executive Director of GlobalPlatform, who will be leading
the workshop, comments: “Cards Asia 2007 provides the ideal environment
to raise industry awareness of the technical developments achieved by
GlobalPlatform that we believe will significantly impact the emerging
mobile payments sector. The workshop also offers GlobalPlatform an
opportunity to gain knowledge of current regional trends, and receive
feedback on industry requirements from the delegates attending.”
The GlobalPlatform Systems Compliance Test Suite, which includes test
specifications, test scripts and a profile library, will enable issuers
and vendors of smart card management systems to quickly and thoroughly
self-test the compliance of their systems to the GlobalPlatform Profile
and Scripting Specifications.
