  • Publication number: 20220014913
    Abstract: A subscriber identity module (eUICC), comprises profiles for the utilization of a mobile terminal that include at least a first profile and at least a second profile, of which the second profile (Pr1, Pr2) is devised as an active profile. The first profile is designed as a root profile (PrR) which in a normal state of the subscriber identity module is in an inactive state, and which is devised to be activated in response to an authentication command (AUTHENTICATE) received at the subscriber identity module. The authentication command is specially parameterized for the root profile (PrR) with a specific root value of the network parameter (P2) to be activated during a change-over period. The initially active second profile (Pr1, Pr2) is deactivated during the change-over period. After the end of the change-over period, the first profile (PrR) is again deactivated and the second profile (Pr1, Pr2) is again activated.

  • Patent number: 10904742
    Abstract: A method for the communicating of a subscriber identity module, implemented or implementable in an end device, in which at least one profile is adapted for the utilization of the mobile end device in a mobile communication network, vis-à-vis a server, in which method a message from the subscriber identity module is sent to the server. Before the sending of the message, a step of the establishing of a technology is carried out in the subscriber identity module in which there is established, which technology the profile corresponds to, and the sending is carried out compliant with the technology. The communicating can involve the notifying of a profile change effected in the subscriber identity module.

  • Patent number: 10602341
    Abstract: A loading package is adapted for loading a profile for a subscription into a subscriber identity module. A loading sequence through the implementation of which in the subscriber identity module the profile is set up in the subscriber identity module. A profile loading counter sequence is generated on the basis of a counter reading of a profile loading counter maintained at a data preparation server; is adapted to load into the subscriber identity module a profile loading counter with the generated counter reading; and is loaded into the subscriber identity module before the loading sequence. The profile loading counter sequence is further adapted if no implemented profile loading counter is present in the subscriber identity module, to implement the profile-loading counter in the subscriber identity module with a counter reading which determines an admissible number of times which the loading package may be loaded into the subscriber identity module.

  • Patent number: 10231127
    Abstract: A method of performing a switch from a first mobile network to a second mobile network by a mobile terminal comprising a secure element comprises the steps of: (a) requesting attachment to the first mobile network using a first identification data element, preferably a first IMSI, of a first subscription profile; (b) requesting attachment to the second mobile network using a second identification data element, preferably a second IMSI, of a second subscription profile; and (c) requesting attachment to the first mobile network. The second mobile network or another mobile network uses a confirmation data element, wherein the confirmation data element has the same format as the first and the second identification data element and is configured such that the attachment request is forwarded to a subscription management server in order to inform the subscription management server whether the attachment to the second mobile network was successful.

  • Patent number: 10104517
    Abstract: A method for loading a profile for a mobile radio subscription from a data preparation server into a subscriber identity module, comprises the steps: (a) providing a profile at the data preparation server; (b) generating a single executable program code module of the profile provided according to (a), which program code module is arranged such that by executing the executable program code module the profile is installed in the subscriber identity module; (c?) loading the single executable program code module into the subscriber identity module. A method for installing a profile in the subscriber identity module, comprises the steps: (d) sending an APDU command from the data preparation server to the subscriber identity module; (e) in reaction to a reception of the APDU command at the subscriber identity module, executing the executable program code module and by executing installing the profile in the subscriber identity module.
