GlobalPlatform applies the term 'secure chip' in reference to embedded technologies used in various chips – such as smart cards, application processors, SD cards, USB tokens and secure elements – for protecting assets (data, keys and applications) from physical or software attacks. The freely available specifications provide the foundation for market convergence and innovative new cross-sector partnerships. The technology has been adopted globally across finance, mobile/telecom, government, healthcare, retail and transit sectors. GlobalPlatform also supports an open compliance program ecosystem to ensure the long-term interoperability of secure chip technology. As a member-driven association with cross-market representation from all world continents, GlobalPlatform membership is open to any organization operating within this landscape. Its 60+ members contribute to technical committees and market-led task forces. GlobalPlatform's strategy is defined and prioritized by a member elected Board of Directors.

DESCRIPTION OF ACTIVITY: One of the goal of iCar Support is to monitor ITS standardisation initiatives and to support relevant efforts. This will be done through: Coordination of Standards Development Organisations (SDOs) addressing similar standardisation topics: there are today a number of SDOs looking at ITS communications. This topic is addressed in IEEE (primary focus bearer level), ISO (primary focus architecture and management level) and ETSI (primary focus frequency allocation and security). Experience shows that those SDOs are to a large extent overlapping and that there is a need to harmonise work between them. Providing a help desk on ITS standard.

NAME : Media Oriented Systems Transport Karlsruhe, Germany
DESCRIPTION OF ACTIVITY: MOST – Media Oriented Systems Transport – is the de-facto standard for multimedia and infotainment networking in the automotive industry. The technology was designed from the ground up to provide an efficient and cost-effective fabric to transmit audio, video, data and control information between any devices attached even to the harsh environment of an automobile. Its synchronous nature allows for simple devices to be able to provide content and others to render that content with the minimum of hardware. At the same time it provides unique quality of service for transmission of audio and video services. Although its roots are in the automotive industry, MOST can be used for applications in other areas such as other transportation applications, A/V networking, security and industrial applications. The MOST Cooperation is the organization through which the technology is standardized and refined so that it continues to stay abreast of the latest technology requirements. Today it consists of 16 international carmakers and more than 60 key component suppliers. They have joined together to work with the MOST Technology and to contribute to its innovation. The MOST Cooperation is also prepared to embrace efforts to further develop and standardize the technology for other industries and to establish the corresponding work structures.
