Google is currently focused on digital car keys, mobile driver’s license, and other identity credentials.Google has set up an Android Ready SE Alliance to offer new Android hardware that is more secure. The coalition builds upon Google’s push for Secure Element (SE), also available on Pixel phones through Titan M chip. Google hopes the SEs will bring features like digital passports and identity cards to Android devices.
“A major goal of this alliance is to enable consistent, interoperable, and demonstrably secure applets across the Android ecosystem. Validated implementations of Android Ready SE applets build an even stronger trust in the Android Platform. OEMs that adopt Android Ready SE can produce devices that are more secure and allow for remote updates to enable compelling new use cases as they are introduced into the Android platform,” Google explains on its developer site.
