GlobalPlatform open-source projects offers reference implementations of services, APIs for Secure Elements implementations and other tools that facilitates the use of GlobalPlatform technologies.

Open-source projects also serve as GlobalPlatform technology outreach to encourage developers, independent contributors, and companies to make use of GlobalPlatform technologies such as Secure Elements, TEE and TEE-MCU for their specific applications.

To simplify collaboration of members and contributors outside of GP membership, GitHub is used to facilitate GlobalPlatform Open-Source projects.
