0  Introductionp. 13

The present document defines a generic Terminal/Integrated Circuit Card (ICC) interface.
The aim of the present document is to ensure interoperability between an ICC and a terminal independently of the respective manufacturer, card issuer or operator. The present document does not define any aspects related to the administrative management phase of the ICC. Any internal technical realization of either the ICC or the terminal is only specified where these are reflected over the interface.
Application specific details for applications residing on an ICC are specified in the respective application specific documents. The Universal Subscriber Identity Module (USIM)-application for 3G telecommunication networks is specified in TS 31.102.

1  Scopep. 14

The present document specifies the interface between the UICC and the terminal.
The present document specifies:
  • the requirements for the physical characteristics of the UICC;
  • the electrical interface for exchanging APDUs between the UICC and the terminal, based on ISO/IEC 7816-3 [11];
  • the initial communication establishment and the transport protocols for this interface;
  • a model which serves as a basis for the logical structure of the UICC APDU interface;
  • communication commands and procedures for the UICC APDU interface;
  • application independent files and protocols for the UICC APDU interface.
The administrative procedures, initial card management and optional communication interfaces between the UICC and terminal are not within the scope of the present document.

3.4  Coding conventionsp. 21

For the purposes of the present document, the following coding conventions apply:
  • All lengths are presented in bytes, unless otherwise stated. Each byte is represented by bits b8 to b1, where b8 is the Most Significant Bit (MSB) and b1 is the Least Significant Bit (LSB). In each representation, the leftmost bit is the MSB.
In the UICC, all bytes specified as RFU shall be set to '00' and all bits specified as RFU shall be set to 0. If the GSM and/or USIM application exists on a UICC or is built on a generic telecommunications card, then other values may apply for the non-GSM or non-USIM applications. The values will be defined in the appropriate specifications for such cards and applications. These bytes and bits shall not be interpreted by a terminal in a GSM or 3G session.
The coding of all data objects in the present document is according to ETSI TS 101 220 [3]. All data objects are BER-TLV except if otherwise defined.
