4.1  Introductionp. 8

Within the 5GC, the SP-AF offers services to the UDM and to the SOR-AF via the Nspaf service based interface.
The UDM or SOR-AF shall make use of the SP-AF services when it needs to protect UE parameters for which the final consumer is the USIM (see TS 33.501, clause
Figure 4.1-1 provides the reference model with focus on the SP-AF.
