  • 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: 20220070813
    Abstract: A method for connecting a secure element to a network of a first mobile network operator using an ephemeral first IMSI, in order to get a second IMSI, from the first mobile network operator, includes: Selecting a first radio serving network, the first selected network being not listed in the Forbidden VPLMN list of the secure element; Sending a REGISTER REQUEST message comprising the first IMSI to the first selected network; If the first selected network does not route the message to the network of the first mobile network operator, stop trying to register with the first selected network and put the MCC/MNC codes of the first selected network in the Forbidden VPLMN list of the secure element; Searching for a another network to register with; and Repeat the foregoing steps until a network routes the first IMSI to the network of the first mobile network operator.

  • Publication number: 20210258156
    Abstract: The invention is a method for updating a first secret data in a credential container including a subscriber identity module. The credential container comprises a set of secret parameters customized for a network operator and is configured to execute a symmetric mutual authentication algorithm using said set. The credential container receives from a remote server a second secret data enciphered using a second algorithm different from said symmetric mutual authentication algorithm and a subset of said secret parameters, the credential container deciphers the enciphered second secret data by using both the subset and a third algorithm and replaces the first secret data with the second secret data.

  • Patent number: 9961626
    Abstract: The invention relates to a method for accessing an Internet protocol Multimedia Subsystem type subsystem, said subsystem. According to the invention, a device is firstly connected to a mobile communication network, as a visited network, said first network. The method comprises the following steps. The first network sends to the device a first message comprising current location data relating to a location where the device is currently present. The device analyzes whether at least one roaming rule associated with the current location data is or is not stored within the device. The at least one roaming rule includes, each, at least one parameter for accessing the subsystem. And if the device does store the at least one roaming rule associated with the current location data, then the device sends to the subsystem a second message including a request for connecting to the subsystem. The invention also pertains to a corresponding device.
