    Why there is NO RUN GSM ALGORITHM method defined in SIMView

    922951
      Dear all,

      Peace upon you.

      My question may be strange something.

      I want to know why there is NO method defined to run GSM algorithm (0xA0 0x88 RUN GSM ALGORITHM GSM 11.11) in SIMView interface inside sim.access package ?

      In case i want to send RUN GSM ALGORITHM Command APDU from Java Card Applet without implementing the SIMView interface and add new method runGsmAlgorithm in new concrete class because i do not know the Authentication algorithm itself.

      Thanks in Advance

          hi Nabil.
          This because of security reason.
          First of all, SIMView supplies API for STK-Applet which no need to run GSM_ALgorithm. Your SIM-Java card do this function independently with other applications.
          secondly, if there is a api for call GSM_algorithym, which data-parameter you use, because this algorithm needs ki,random number for running. The Ki is the security number which is not allowed to access without OperatingSystem priorty.

          Thanks
