TSM: Friend or Foe to the NFC Marketplace?

TSM: Friend or Foe to the NFC Marketplace?This 26-page white paper from consulting services provider FIME looks at the role of trusted service managers (TSMs) in the globalisation of NFC services and explores how services can be tested prior to implementation to mitigate risk and ensure a return on investment.

“The TSMs are the broker between other actors in the ecosystem, and they securely manage the business relationships and connections between mobile network operators and other organisations that have a claim on the secure element,” the white paper states.

“There are a number of organisations that are developing guidelines and standards to promote interoperability; most notably GlobalPlatform, a standards body for managing applications on secure chip technology. But, adoption is slow, and there are a number of reasons why this is the case.”
