This document makes it easier for mobile network operators (MNOs), service and solution providers to deploy Mobile Connect services which use an authentication application provisioned on the user’s SIM card.
This document contains all errata notes for Open Mobile API Specification v3.2. It contains all the modifications from the first Errata document for Open Mobile API specification v3.2 released in February 2016.
This document has been released to align with the latest Open Mobile API Specification Version 3.2, and makes it easier to implement and verify the use of this latest version of the OMAPI Specification in handsets, encouraging greater standardisation in secure element access management across mobile devices.
The updated SIMalliance Open Mobile API (OMAPI) Specification v3.2 incorporates changes to accommodate the growing number of dual SIM devices on the market and enhances the ability of mobile applications to communicate with secure elements (SE) within a device.
This document defines the technical specification of a standard format to be used for the loading and installation of an interoperable Profile Package in any compliant eUICC. This specification is based on the following SIMalliance document: eUICC Profile Package: Interoperability Functional Requirements.
UICC Configuration for Mobile NFC Payments v1.0
This paper defines SIMalliance’s recommendations for UICC configuration and feature requirements in mobile near field communication (NFC) payments. The aim of this document is to provide guidelines that support service providers, mobile network operators (MNOs), manufacturers and implementers of mobile NFC payment services, by facilitating system integration, simplifying interoperability and reducing market fragmentation.

Interoperability Stepping Stones Release 7 Version 1.0.0 Completing ETSI’s work of releasing specifications and test suites, the purpose of this guide is to provide developers with information concerning Java Card™ SIM constraints and a common interpretation of the standards for the members of the SIM Alliance that contributed to this document.
The target audience of this guide is Network Operators, Wireless Service Providers and anyone interested in interoperable Java Card applet development. Used in conjunction with the Java Card Applet Developer’s Guide from SUN Microsystems, this guide aims to allow interoperable Java Card applications to be developed, thereby providing interoperable behaviours of the Java Cards and a common implementation of the standard APIs.
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.

Archive:Implementation Guideline for the UICC – Terminal USB Interface V1
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.

Archive:SIMalliance CAT Loader V2.0
The SIMalliance CAT Loader 2.0 allows network operators and service developers to manage ETSI toolkit applications compliant with the latest release using the high-speed CAT-TP protocol and allows users to download and install applications on the SIM card, as well as analyze card content and remove applications. A must-have tool for any applications developer, SIMalliance CAT Loader 2.0 has been tested with all main SIMalliance card suppliers, to ensure it is a truly interoperable tool. New features within CAT Loader 2.0 include: • Management of contactless applications (NFC) according to GlobalPlatform 2.2 Amendment C • Management of SCP02 security according to GlobalPlatform 2.2.1, allowing confidential management of card applications • Update to the most recent specification of card content management • Management of multiple sessions and scripts
