Chip heavyweight ARM said today it is teaming up with Gemalto and
Germany's Giesecke & Devrient on a three-way joint venture targeting
mobile security.

The companies hope to create a "common security standard" for services
running on smartphones, tablets and other connected devices like
gaming consoles and smart televisions.

The standard could find use in applications ranging from digital movie
rentals to mobile payments, the chief executives of ARM and Gemalto
said in the announcement.

"The integration of the hardware, software and services necessary for
system-wide security has been slow,” ARM CEO Warren East said in a
statement. "I am confident that this new joint venture will accelerate
the adoption of a common security standard, enabling a vibrant
ecosystem of secure service providers to emerge."
