Title: THIRD-PARTY ACCESS TO SECURE HARDWARE
Abstract:
Integrating third-party applications and native applications allows platform designers to provide greater services than otherwise would be available. This integration can increase security, provide more features, and give users a better experience with devices. Examples of such integration can allow third-party applications to have access to hardware and to provide seamless services to users. Such services can include registering payment accounts, allowing for loyalty programs, and providing additional information and services in native applications to provide a seamless experience.
