The Oberthur USIM has been developed based on Oberthur’s proven Java technology first pioneered in the Mobile Market in 1998.
Oberthur has been at the forefront of inter-operability, and has fully participated in standardisation. This activity has lead to the SIMphonIC 3G 64 RSA 32-bit.
The USIM card supports a full implementation of the Milenage Algorithm for both 2G and 3G, and has sufficient flexibility to support operator-specific algorithms loaded as optional codes or in ROM for future masked versions, in line with Oberthur’s policy of developing global products which may be customised to operator specific requirements.
Oberthur has performed several tests around different 3G algorithm executions and performance of phonebook synchronization. Oberthur was highly satisfied with the 32-bit ARM cores which showed outstanding performance.
The USIM implements advanced flexible security management, based on several “PIN” code levels, e.g. local and global PIN.
The USIM fully supports the advance 3GPP Phonebook, enabling the user to develop their own personal database storing contact details, such a home, mobile, fax and e-mail. Since the phonebook is based on the 3GPP standards it allows for future synchronisation with other devices, e.g. PC’s running outlook, hand helds, etc...
