This document describes a specific implementation of the GlobalPlatform Card Specification for Secure Elements. A Secure Element (SE) is a tamper resistant component which is used in a device to provide the security, confidentiality, and multiple application environment required to support various business models. Such a Secure Element may exist in any form factor such as UICC, embedded SE, smartSD, smart microSD, etc. In this document, the term "card" is used to refer to such a Secure Element, whatever the form factor, in order to easily refer to all existing mechanisms defined in GlobalPlatform Card Specifications.
