Title (EN) SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR FLEXIBLY LOADING AN IC CARD
(FR) SYSTEME ET PROCEDE PERMETTANT DE CHARGER DE MANIERE FLEXIBLE UNE CARTE A CIRCUIT INTEGRE
Abstract:
(EN) A system and method of flexibly loading an application and its associated data from an application provider onto an IC card. The application and its associated data is divided into segments which can each fit into the input buffer of an Integrated circuit card. Each segment is transmitted separately and the Integrated circuit card then stores the segment in an available space in the IC card's memory. The segments can be placed in non-contiguous memory in order to reduce memory fragmentation.
(FR) L'invention concerne un système et un procédé permettant de charger de manière flexible sur une carte à circuit intégré une application, et les données qui y sont associées, provenant d'un fournisseur d'applications. Cette application, et les données qui y sont associées, sont divisées en segments qui peuvent chacun tenir dans le tampon d'entrée d'une carte à circuit intégré. Chaque segment est transmis séparément et la carte à circuit intégré stocke alors le segment dans un espace disponible de la mémoire de la carte à circuit intégré. Ces segments peuvent être disposés dans une mémoire non consécutive en vue de réduire la fragmentation de la mémoire.
