This document is a collection of guidelines and recommendations for optimal support of the UICC by device manufacturers designing handsets, tablets, modems and other devices making use of a telecom UICC.
A set of industry leading interoperability collaterals containing detailed specifications, standardization considerations and pragmatic tips - aim to simplify the development, implementation and support of new NFC contactless services and applications. .
Mandatory for MNOs, service designers and providers, integrators, hardware manufacturers, etc.
This document is a collection of requirements for optimal support of LTE/EPS networks by UICC. The document uses ETSI SCP and 3GPP Release 8 as the baseline release and it clarifies the optional parts and some implementation issues. It also refers to relevant documents provided by OMA, OMTP and GSMA SmartSIM.
SIMalliance white paper "Stepping Stones" has been updated to integrate Smart card Web Server (SCWS) technology. It's a practical guide to interoperability with tips and suggestions to help service developers design new applications that will work with any USIM card.
The USB Inter-Chip interface (successor to the asynchronous transmission protocol defined by ISO 7816-3 ) selected by the European Telecommunications Standardization Institute (ETSI) allows smart cards to offer security and data services over state-of-the-art Internet protocols integrating into today’s IT infrastructure.
However the change to a central component of a standardized system always bears interoperability risks. The main purpose of this document therefore is to reduce this risk and to contribute to a faster and smoother introduction of USB UICCs and USB terminals into the market.
Further and to the benefit of those readers who have not been able to follow the discussion about the use cases behind the introduction of the new interface, an Annex of this document gives background information showing the relevance of the technology to the most important applications like local content browsing (using the Smart Card Web Server), handset customization and contact management.
Mobile Television has been introduced around the globe today by mobile operators. However these new revenue streams will also inevitably attract professional Pay TV pirates, who rank amongst the most sophisticated and experienced hackers in the world, and who are ready to invest a lot of time and money in hacking tools. In this case, hacking is carried out to obtain direct and massive revenue from hacks.
The objective of this document is to provide a recommendation to operators looking to select a SIM card that matches their expectations in relation to their risk management strategy for Mobile TV.
The objective of the guidelines is two-fold:
- provide operators with the level of information needed to clarify security-related requirements for Mobile TV SIM cards and pre-empt the pitfalls which operators might fall into if their authentication technology does not tally with anti-fraud and piracy strategies.
- define a security evaluation process path shared by the industry, measuring the robustness of SIM cards ** for Mobile TV.
** At present, there is no independent and public security evaluation that gives a level of robustness needed for SIM cards in the context of Mobile TV
