3GPP51.014Release 4Specification of the SIM Application Toolkit for the Subscriber Identity Module - Mobile Equipment (SIM - ME) interfaceTS

The present document defines the interface between the Subscriber Identity Module (SIM) and the Mobile Equipment (ME), and mandatory ME procedures, specifically for "SIM Application Toolkit".

The present document refers in its majority to the ETSI TS 102 223 [37] "Card Application Toolkit", which describes the generic aspects of application toolkits within the SIM.SIM Application Toolkit is a set of commands and procedures for use during the network operation phase of GSM, in addition to those defined in TS 51.011 [20].

Specifying the interface is to ensure interoperability between a SIM and an ME independently of the respective manufacturers and operators. The concept of a split of the Mobile Station (MS) into these elements as well as the distinction between the GSM network operation phase, which is also called GSM operations, and the administrative management phase are described in TS 42.017 [3].

The present document defines:

– the commands;

– the application protocol;

– the mandatory requirements on the SIMand ME for each procedure.

Unless otherwise stated, references to GSM also apply to DCS 1800.

The present document does not specify any aspects related to the administrative management phase. Any internal technical realization of either the SIMor the ME are only specified where these reflect over the interface. This standard does not specify any of the security algorithms which may be used.

Within the context of this document, the term "terminal" used in TS 102 223 [37] refers to the Mobile Equipment (ME).

Within the context of this document, the term "UICC" used in TS 102 223 [37] refers to the SIM card.

Within the context of this document, the term "NAA" used in TS 102 223 [37] refers to the SIM application.
