Coronavirus: We assure our participants, members and partners that ETSI is monitoring the situation of the Coronavirus outbreak very closely and will ensure all necessary initiatives will be taken in accordance with the instructions of the government authorities. ETSI will inform participants as soon as possible in case that the event might be cancelled.

Trust and privacy together with cost and flexibility are key to security solutions for many applications in today’s digital world. To address this challenge, ETSI Technical Committee Smart Card Platform, who standardized the former generations of SIM cards, has been working on a brand-new security platform called Smart Secure Platform (SSP).

The workshop will unveil this next generation platform, explaining why an evolution was needed, what has been defined for which purpose and introducing the technical specifications. Though this platform is disruptive from a technology point of view it also provides a smooth migration path for applications such as the SIM based on the current platform, the UICC.

The day will also discuss which verticals and applications could use this new technology, the impact of the introduction of the SSP on the overall market, and what still needs to be defined. It will provide an opportunity for all stakeholders to discuss their needs as well as providing feedback for the future development of the SSP.

The Thread "SSP: the Disruptive Change of the Secure Elemets markets" will be taking place on 11 June 2020.
