I recently presented on this topic at the Global Platform TEE Seminar last month - http://teeseminar.org/about_the_workshop.asp.
Trustonic are increasingly working with developers using our SDK to secure their applications. So if you didn’t get a chance to attend that event, I’ve written up the five key steps!

This year the annual global platform event included a TEE developer workshop. For the first time we had a day dedicated to developer topics - http://teeseminar.org/about_the_workshop.asp. This was a chance to educate developers on how to utilise the powerful security features the TEE brings, and evangelise the technology to the grass roots of the industry.

Powerful hardware security in today’s smart devices isn’t something new. ARM announced TrustZoneTM in 2003 (http://www.arm.com/about/company-profile/milestones.php), starting the trend for system on chip manufacturers to licence this secure platform.
How do developers make use of this?

So, what’s a ‘thing’? I’m not asking you to define something, nor indeed anything, but just plain old thing. It’s a word many of us use when we’re not quite sure – either by ignorance or indecision – what we’re talking about. It’s a useful substitute for real concrete words and concepts when specificity of the ‘thing’ in question is less important than whatever we’re saying about it.

This year Trustonic’s Trusted User interface (TUI) technology was integrated in Samsung’s flagship devices: the Galaxy Note 4 and Galaxy S6 - https://www.trustonic.com/products-services/trustonic-for-samsung-knox. With this technology Trustonic’s Trusted Execution Environment (TEE) can process user interactions (display and touch) independently from Android in a hardware isolated enclave, made possible by ARM’s TrustZone™.

Trustonic works very closely with many top-tier OEMs (Original Equipment Manufacturers) and ODMs (Original Design Manufacturers) to integrate, adapt, and extend our Trusted Execution Environment (TEE) for devices launched across the planet. In fact, today there are over 400 million devices using Trustonic’s TEE and this figure is growing fast.

Apple brings new meaning to Pay-As-You-Go : http://qz.com/282466
I have dreamed of the day that Pay-As-You go would actually mean just that. The problem with today's Pay-As-You-Go is that it generally means “pre pay your mobile bill but stay on our network”. Buy more minutes than you can ever possibly use in month and which rapidly expire forcing you to “Top Up”. Every month. Hmm, this looks suspiciously like a monthly plan…

With the recent launch of Apple Pay, consumers and media are once again abuzz about mPayments. But are these really the Apple seeds of a revolution?

Three weeks ago I had problems with two clouds. Rain clouds and “The Cloud”.
As the British summer goes, rain is the seasonal hazard for any barbeque booked in advance. So the backup plan kicked in when torrential downpours arrived on the day. Movies on-demand, you’re it …

Only four years ago, the tablet market as we know it didn’t exist. Yet today, millions of people are using them, along with smartphones, to improve productivity in their personal and professional lives. However, enterprises are left with the headache of protecting sensitive data across multiple devices and user profiles. The BYOD trend has made it difficult to control and secure devices connecting to the enterprise.

You’ve never had more instant access to content without leaving home, but if you want to take your favourite TV show or film to your friend’s house you may still be better off with 20th century technology

Today’s mobile generation wants it all, and it wants it now. In every aspect of our lives we have come to expect more from technology and services – yet the simple act of buying a film or TV show often breaks down. Why?

If my headline sounds like a glowing endorsement for Mobile World Congress, then that stands – it was a tremendously successful show for Trustonic this year, so much so that we have rebooked for 2015. But my point here is that during the show the need to establish trust in the mobile ecosystem has emerged as one of the most pressing challenges for 2014.

Last week, the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) published the early findings of its “thematic” review into mobile banking services, exploring potential risks to consumers and areas that industry should consider when developing their services.

Some would say cloud-based mobile payments have shouldered the responsibility of being ‘the future of payments’ for several years now, but we’re yet to live in a world where the wave of a phone buys the morning paper and coffee.

Danny Hillis, an inventor, scientist, author and engineer, featured in a TED Talk posted online last week. In his talk he proposed something of a radical idea; a Plan B for the Internet.

Last week an article in the Wall Street Journal took at look back at this year’s Mobile World Congress, and the abundance of Near Field Communication (NFC) technologies grappling for attention at the show.

Last week rather than follow the crowd to Mobile World Congress in Barcelona I headed out to the other major conference on at the time: RSA Conference in San Francisco. After a few years in the doldrums this year's show was bigger, brighter and had some interesting things to say.
