Work on Machine-to-Machine (M2M) applications has given rise to the possibility of having a UICC that is embedded in a communication device in such a way that the UICC is not easily accessible or replaceable. The ability to change network subscriptions on such devices becomes problematic, thus necessitating new methods for securely and remotely provisioning access credentials on these Embedded UICCs (eUICC) and managing subscription changes from one MNO to another.

In its current state, the present document is to be considered as a "work in progress". It contains a restricted set of requirements related to the provisioning of profiles in an eUICC as well as general requirements on the architecture of the eUICC. As a consequence, some of the elements required to specify a complete technical solution are missing, among which are requirements for:
  • management of profiles;
  • management of credentials;
  • the policy control function;
which will be defined in further versions of the present document.
