  • Publication number: 20220248315
    Abstract: A method for updating a terminal comprising a secure element is provided by way of an Over-the-Air (OTA) platform. The OTA receives at least a location data reflecting the location of the terminal and a request for downloading a list of preferred networks in the terminal. Each of said preferred networks may be associated with its own target roaming quota usage, at least one weighting factor associated to a given list of the set may be updated as a result of an optimization function which aims at generating one weighting factor based on a target roaming quota usage associated to each preferred network of the given list. Other embodiments are disclosed.

  • Publication number: 20220225077
    Abstract: Provided is a method to operate a subscriber identification module connected to a communication equipment configured to operate in a cellular network and communicatively coupled with a remote server. The method includes receiving from the communication equipment an information element indicating a time range relating to a suspend time of the communication equipment, receiving from the remote server a target access time information element indicating an expected time for an access request from the subscriber identification module to the remote server, and determining a suspension time period considering the suspend time range. The method includes providing to the communication equipment the suspension time period, and in case after resuming from the suspension instructed by the communication equipment the accumulated duration of at least one successive time period derived from the suspension time period exceeds the target access time, sending a polling message.

  • Publication number: 20220191677
    Abstract: A system comprising a secure element cooperating with a telecommunication terminal is provided. The secure element or the terminal comprises files in which MCC/MNC codes of MNOs are stored. The telecommunication terminal is configured to select the files in order to attach the terminal to the telecommunication network of a MNO. The secure element or the terminal also comprise a file, called National like network file, for storing national network codes (MCC/MNC) of networks of the country of the Home PLMN of the secure element. The terminal selects the National like network file in order to try to connect the terminal to one of the networks referenced in the National like network file. Other embodiments are disclosed.

  • Publication number: 20210400493
    Abstract: Transferring a MSISDN from a first to a second secure element includes: during an enrolment phase of the first secure element, transferring from the first secure element to a remote server, a first hash of a secret information entered by a user in the terminal and the MSISDN of the subscription of the user; and storing the hash associated to the MSISDN in the server. When the second secure element is for the first time activated in a terminal, after the user having entered the MSISDN to be transferred and the secret information, the second information is hashed to form a second hash for the second secure element. The first hash and the second hash are compared, and if the second hash corresponds to the first hash for this MSISDN, a subscription identifier of the second secure element is assigned to this MSISDN at the level of the operator network.

  • Patent number: 11082821
    Abstract: A method for provisioning an applet in a security element with credentials of a terminal application provided by an application server comprises: Sending a request to provision the applet with credentials from the terminal application to the applet; Sending an SMS message containing an identifier of the applet from the applet to an OTA platform; Adding the MSISDN of the security element by an SMSC located in front of the OTA platform in the header of the SMS; Requesting the credentials from the OTA platform to the application server; Sending from the application server to the OTA platform the credentials to be associated with the MSISDN; Sending from the OTA platform to the applet the credentials associated with the MSISDN; and Sending from the applet to the terminal application a message that it has been provisioned with credentials of the terminal application.

  • Patent number: 8583081
    Abstract: The invention relates to a method for calculating a first identifier of a secure element of a mobile terminal according to a second identifier of said secure element. The first identifier is a temporary identifier and the second identifier is a final identifier of the secure element in a telecommunications network. According to the invention, the method comprises the steps of: a—during the first attempt to connect the mobile terminal to the telecommunications network, calculating the first identifier according to the second identifier; b—transmitting the first identifier to the telecommunications network; c—in response to a message of acceptance of the first identifier from the telecommunications network, inhibiting the use of the first identifier by the secure element and, for every subsequent attempt to connect to the telecommunications network, using the second identifier to authenticate the secure element.
