The present document specifies a logical interface that enables contactless applications hosted on the UICC. The present document covers the configuration where the one host is embedded in the UICC which is connected to the host controller embedded in the CLF.
The interface is specified in two parts:
the HCI core as described in the first part of the present document (clauses 4 to 8), specifies an application
independent logical interface; and
the contactless platform as described in the second part of the present document (clauses 9 to 11) specifies an
implementation of the HCI core for contactless applications using the UICC and the CLF.
Lower layer protocols that support the HCI like the SWP specified in TS 102 613
are out of the scope of the present document.
