This TS specifies the structure of the Secured Packets in a general format and in implementations using Short Message Service Point to Point (SMS-PP) and Short Message Service Cell Broadcast (SMS-CB).
Furthermore, the coding is specified for a set of common application commands within the secured packets. This set is a subset of commands specified in TS 51.011
and allows remote management of files on the UICC in
conjunction with SMS and the Data Download to UICC feature of TS 31.111
For UICCs based on TS 43.019
, the set of commands used in the remote applet management is defined in
the present document. This is based on the Open Platform card management specification. For UICCs based on
other technologies, other loading mechanisms may be used.
This TS is applicable to the exchange of secured packets between an entity in a 3G or GSM PLMN and
an entity in the UICC.
Secured Packets contain application messages to which certain mechanisms according to TS 22.048
applied. Application messages are commands or data exchanged between an application resident in or behind the 3G or GSM PLMN and on the UICC. The Sending/Receiving Entity in the 3G or GSM PLMN and the UICC are responsible
for applying the security mechanisms to the application messages and thus turning them into Secured Packets.
