|Publication Date:||1 April 2021|
The present document specifies the interface between the UICC and the terminal.
The present document specifies:
• the requirements for the physical characteristics of the UICC;
• the electrical interface for exchanging APDUs between the UICC and the terminal, based on ISO/IEC 7816-3 ;
• the initial communication establishment and the transport protocols for this interface;
• a model which serves as a basis for the logical structure of the UICC APDU interface;
• communication commands and procedures for the UICC APDU interface;
• application independent files and protocols for the UICC APDU interface.
The administrative procedures, initial card management and optional communication interfaces between the UICC and terminal are not within the scope of the present document.
