Huawei and Trustonic Expand Partnership with P40 Series Launch

By Chrissie Cluney July 06, 2020

Trustonic and Huawei have formed a partnership to bring simplicity and greater security to mobile applications. 

Trustonic Application Protection (TAP) supports Huawei’s hardware-backed Trusted Execution Environments (TEE) and the HUAWEI P40 Series smartphone supports the TAP SDK at launch. Application developers can utilize the TAP development platform to leverage Huawei’s hardware-backed security. The platform features Trusted User Interface (TUI). This is important for the next generation of mobile banking, payments and mPOS, automotive and mobile identity-based apps.

“The TAP development platform gives application developers access to the advanced security features that they need to bring trust and richer user experiences to app users across billions of smartphones worldwide,” said Dion Price, CEO, Trustonic. “This announcement is a significant achievement in just one year of working with Huawei and will bring hardware-backed security to an even wider range of applications and services.”

The TAP platform allows for application developers to build advanced security and shielding into critical mobile apps. This will assist Huawei to create a secure ecosystem for its Huawei devices. This begins with the HUAWEI P40 Series. The series will offer support for the other devices that are upgraded to EMUI 10.1. The app’s integration with TAP will simplify the process of secure application development for Huawei devices and their acceptance into the broader application ecosystem.

TAP is the only application development platform that combines hardware-backed and software based in-app protection. This allows any developer to build and deploy applications with advanced security. It also makes use of TUI to shield sensitive user-interactions from potentially-compromised main device operating systems. The platform is already protecting a wide range of sensitive mobile application use-cases globally. This includes the digital car key sharing apps for Volkswagen Group and Hyundai, and off-the-shelf smartphone secure payment acceptance with Rubean.

The first development platform was launched in 2019. The platform enables developers to protect their apps and assets with TEE across different devices.
