What is Smart Card Web Server (SCWS)?

Smart Card Web Server is web server application which works in the SIM Card. It allows HTTP/1.0 and HTTP/1.1 connection between mobile phone and SIM card. It could enrich visualizations of content by using xHTML, javascript and flash animations.
As any web server SCWS is not only performing static content but also capable to serve dynamic content using SCWS servlets. Let's have a look to generic architecture of SCWS:

All parts of SCWS at the present time have been standardized by Open Mobile Alliance (OMA) and ETSI:

Smart Card Web Server:
  • OMA-TS-Smartcard_Web_Server-V1_1-20090512-A
  • Covers the technical specificities of a HTTP server in a SIM card plus the new Remote Management architecture and protocol
  • 1.1 Approved by OMA in 2008
BIP TCP Server:
  • Standardised bearer (TS 102 223 Rel-7) for ISO (APDU) interface minor modification to BIP/TCP Client (Rel-99)
USB-IC ("IP in UICC"):
  • High speed interface (HSI) based on USB: TS 102 600
  • Direct TCP/IP connectivity, locally or remotely: TS 102 483, on top of USB
SCWS Servlet API:
  • TS 102 588 Rel-7
SCWS supports Basic Authentication by default. SCWS Servlet API allows developing any type of application. Some examples:
  • Home screen personalization based on operator design
  • Blogging application which could work even offline and upload posts when it will be online
  • Operator portal which will replace ancient STK menu application
  • etc

You actually make it appear so easy with your presentation however
I in finding this topic to be actually one thing that I
think I might never understand. It kind of feels too complicated and very extensive for me.
I am having a look forward to your subsequent put up, I will attempt to get the hang of it!
