21.1113GPPRelease 17TSUSIM and IC card requirements

This document defines the requirements of the USIM (Universal Subscriber Identity Module) and the IC card for 3G (UICC). These are derived from the service and security requirements defined in TS 22.100 [1] and TS 22.101 [2]. The USIM is a 3G application on an IC card. It inter-operates with a 3G terminal and provides access to 3G services. This document is intended to serve as a basis for the detailed specification of the USIM and the UICC, and the interface to the 3G terminal.
