Description

There is an interoperable file format for SIM profiles whihc is mainly used in the eSIM/eUICC context.

The specs and the ASN.1 syntax can be found at
https://trustedconnectivityalliance.org/wp-content/uploads/2021/05/eUICC-Profile-Package-v3.1.zip

It would be an interesting idea to add support to pySim to
  1. read such a profile and program a card (e.g. sysmoISIM-SJA2) with its contents
  2. read a physical card and generate such a profile. For the standard file contents, this is possible in a generic way, but for the non-standard bits like storage of PIN/PUK/ADM/K/OP and OTA keys this would need support from the card specific part of the code base

Updated by laforge over 1 year ago

I recently did a bit of toying around with the profile packages in DER and ASN.1 value notation syntax and pycrate.

  • pycrate can parse the DER format
  • pycrate cannot parse the ASN.1 value notation text files with value0..value23 in them, but one has to first manually split every 'value' and call the parser on it individually
    • alternative is to compile the asn.1 syntax together with the value notation files using `pycrate_asn1compile.py`

Once parsed, one can navigate around the tree of asn.1 elements such as the individual files, etc.

Given the format of the profile packages, one would have to do quite a bit of post-processing of the data and then generate a series of CREATE FILE / UPDATE BINARY etc. commands to actually write the profile to a card. 90% would be standard TS 102 221 / 102 223 commands, while some bits like MILENAGE config etc. would be proprietary commands.

benoit, are the above statements still true? Just asking since my original testing was done almost one year ago.

I would love to have some code that can parse (and operate on the parsed data) interoperable eSIM profiles. As result, we could add code to pySim that programs a physical USIM/ISIM with the data from such a profile.

Yes, still true, and probably won't change.

There is still the possibility to properly compile the ASN.1 module with the eSIM profiles with `pycrate_asn1compile.py` and use the generated Python file. It's also possible to do the compilation programmatically, by calling `compile_text()` then `generate_modules()` (as in https://github.com/P1sec/pycrate/blob/master/tools/pycrate_asn1compile.py#L215) and then loading the generated module.
Or maybe just using the intermediate representation produced by `compile_text()` could be sufficient for your purpose ? Maybe if you elaborate a bit more on what you would like to do with the values from the ASN.1 definitions, I could propose some code to embed on your side ?
