Securing the process of remote eSIM provisioning for subscriber identity changes – eSIM or embedded SIM describes a SIM card that is directly implemented into the consumer's end device.
eSIM technology is often used for IoT devices that operate in a Machine-to-Machine (M2M) environment, as these devices require instant on-demand connectivity. eSIMs are remotely managed and updated. This means organizations can change the subscriber identity remotely.
The GSMA has developed a set of requirements that includes standards for eUICC security, production environment, and process security, including functional compliance. These requirements are in place in order to prevent hackers from gaining access to IoT devices anywhere in the world and to ensure a secure eSIM ecosystem.
Utimaco provides cybersecurity solutions that contribute in creating a secure environment for eSIM provisioning, including reliable authentication, authorization, verification, and validation within the identification process for trusted mobile networks.
