Therefore, we introduce a virtual software SIM (vSIM) with comparable usage and security characteristics like the traditional smartcard-based solution. Additionally, running a virtual SIM as a trusted and protected software on a mobile device allow significant expansion of services by introducing new usage scenarios and business models, cost reduction and more flexibility. Our approach demonstrates the substitutability of a SIM card with an adequate trusted software module supported and protected by a trustworthy operating system. In particular we propose several methods for authentication and enrollment of a subscriber.}, doi = {10.1109/ICACT.2008.4493913}, }
