Abstract (en)

[origin: FR2779850A1] The invention concerns a method consisting in: coupling the card (24), initially configured for a first application, with a terminal (14); executing a particular transaction, operating a software reconfiguration of the card for a target-application such that the resulting reconfigured card emulates a card specific to the target-application; and executing a target-application transaction. The method provides that the card should be generally reset, except for the non-volatile memory, at each configuration change. Subsequently, it consists in coupling the card, reconfigured for the target-application, with a terminal of the first application, and executing another particular transaction, returning to the first application software configuration. The first application can in particular be a GSM radio telephone SIM card, and the target-application a token-facility application.
