Description

TECHNICAL FIELD



[0001] This application relates to the field of telecommunications smartcards, and in particular, to a method for authenticating and updating an eUICC firmware version and a related apparatus.

BACKGROUND



[0002] An embedded universal integrated circuit card (embedded Universal Integrated Circuit Card, eUICC) is a third-generation telecommunications smartcard, and can perform remote profile management in a secure manner, or perform local profile management (for example, profile activation, deactivation, deletion, or the like that is triggered by a user of a terminal device). The term eUICC is derived from an embedded (embedded) UICC. The eUICC may be embedded in the terminal device in a form of a single chip or as a part of another single chip in the terminal device. However, it does not mean that the eUICC needs to be embedded in the terminal device and cannot be moved. The eUICC may be in a form of a removable card as a subscriber identification module (Subscriber Identification Module, SIM) card, a micro SIM card, or a nano-SIM card.

[0003] In an architecture of an eUICC remote management/configuration system, a remote server includes a server that provides a service for a terminal device or interacts with a terminal device, such as a subscription manager-data preparation+ (Subscription Manager Data Preparation+, SM-DP+) server, a subscription manager-discovery (Subscription Manager Discovery Service, SM-DS) server, and an operating system patch server (Operation System Patch Server, OPS). The SM-DS is also referred to as an event management server, and may be configured to: perform event registration based on an event registration request of another remote server, and send a corresponding event record to the terminal device when the terminal device initiates query, so that the terminal device establishes a connection to a corresponding remote server by using an address of the remote server in the event record, and performs a corresponding operation, where an event includes but is not limited to a subscription information set (Profile) download event and a remote profile management (Remote Profile Management, RPM) event. Currently, event registration and distribution of the SM-DS server are in a one-to-one correspondence. To be specific, one event record corresponds to only one eUICC. When one service corresponds to a plurality of eUICCs, for example, the service is an eUICC firmware version update service, a remote server that provides the eUICC firmware version update service needs to separately initiate a plurality of event registration requests to the SM-DS, so that the SM-DS separately registers a plurality of event records for the plurality of eUICCs. This is relatively cumbersome. In addition, when one terminal device includes two or more eUICCs and the two or more eUICCs simultaneously establish connections to a same remote server, the two or more eUICCs need to separately perform eUICC bidirectional authentication with the remote server, and efficiency is relatively low.

DESCRIPTION OF EMBODIMENTS



[0101] The following clearly and completely describes the technical solutions in the embodiments of this application with reference to the accompanying drawings in the embodiments of this application.

[0102] The technical solutions in the embodiments of this application are applicable to an eUICC remote management/configuration system. An architecture of the eUICC remote management/configuration system in the embodiments of this application may be shown in FIG. 1. FIG. 1 is a schematic architectural diagram of an eUICC remote configuration/management system according to an embodiment of this application. An SM-DP+ is responsible for preparing a profile package, and encrypts the profile package by using a key encryption key of a profile. The SM-DP+ binds the profile package encrypted with the key encryption key to an EID of a specified eUICC, and securely downloads the bound profile package to a terminal. In addition, the SM-DP+ may also execute remote profile management (Remote Profile management, RPM) and remote eUICC management (Remote eUICC Management, ReM). The SM-DP+ may be deployed on a server of an operator, an eUICC manufacturer, an original equipment manufacturer (Original Equipment Manufacturer, OEM), or another party. An OPS is configured to: prepare an eUICC firmware version update package, and send the prepared eUICC firmware version update package (for example, an eUICC firmware version incremental package or an eUICC firmware version full package) to the terminal device. An eUICC firmware version may be a remote SIM provisioning (Remote SIM Provisioning, RSP) version supported by an eUICC, or may be an eUICC platform version, or may be an eUICC operating system version, or may be an eUICC platform version and an eUICC operating system version. In addition, the eUICC firmware version may also include a JAVA platform version or an eUICC operating system version including a new feature (i.e. new algorithm). The eUICC firmware version may also include a TS102241 version and a global platform (globalplatform) version. An SM-DS is configured to provide one or more SM-DP+ addresses or OPS addresses to the terminal device. The terminal device may establish a connection to the SM-DP+ by using an SM-DP+ address, or the terminal device may establish a connection to the OPS by using an OPS address. The terminal device includes a local profile assistant (Local Profile Assitant, LPA), configured to establish a connection to the SM-DP+ to perform related management operations on a profile and an eUICC, such as downloading and installation, remote profile management and remote eUICC management, and eUICC firmware version update. The terminal device further includes an eUICC, configured to implement various functions of a SIM card, a profile configuration and management function, and an eUICC configuration and management function. An operator is a service support system of an operator, and is responsible for subscribing to a profile from the SM-DP+ and requesting to manage a profile on an eUICC. An end user (End User) is a user/user of the terminal device. The eUICC manufacturer (eUICC Manufacturer, EUM) is a manufacturer of an eUICC. The SM-DP+, the SM-DS, and the OPS may all be referred to as eUICC remote servers (or remote SIM configuration servers). In a possible manner, the SM-DP+ and the OPS may be deployed on a same server.

[0103] The terminal device mentioned in the embodiments of this application may be a device that provides a user with voice and/or data connectivity, a handheld device with a radio connection function, or another processing device connected to a radio modem. The terminal device may communicate with one or more core networks through a radio access network (Radio Access Network, RAN). The terminal device may be a mobile terminal, such as a mobile phone (also referred to as a "cellular" phone) and a computer with a mobile terminal, for example, may be a portable, pocket-sized, handheld, computer built-in, or vehicle-mounted mobile apparatus, which exchanges voice and/or data with the radio access network. For example, the terminal device may be a device such as a personal communication service (PCS, Personal Communication Service) phone, a cordless telephone set, a session initiation protocol (SIP) phone, a wireless local loop (WLL, Wireless Local Loop) station, or a personal digital assistant (PDA, Personal Digital Assistant). The terminal device may also be an internet of things device that is connected to a sensor network layer and a transport network layer and that collects data and sends data to a network layer. For example, the terminal device may be a device such as a refrigerator, an air conditioner, or a washing machine in a smart household system. The terminal device may also be referred to as a system, a subscriber unit (Subscriber Unit), a subscriber station (Subscriber Station), a mobile station (Mobile Station), a mobile console (Mobile), a remote station (Remote Station), an access point (Access Point), a remote terminal (Remote Terminal), an access terminal (Access Terminal), a user terminal (User Terminal), a user agent (User Agent), a user device (User Device), or user equipment (User Equipment).

[0104] FIG. 2 is a schematic flowchart of a method for updating a firmware version according to an embodiment of this application. As shown in the figure, the method includes the following steps.

[0105] S101. A terminal device sends first information to an event management server, where the first information includes a target identifier, and the event management server receives the first information.

[0106] Specifically, as shown in FIG. 1, the terminal device may include an LPA and an eUICC. The LPA and the eUICC may be two modules that are separated from each other and that have a physical or logical connection relationship. For example, the LPA is disposed on a baseband chip, an application processor, or another hardware module of the terminal device. Alternatively, the LPA may also be directly deployed on the eUICC. Specifically, the LPA may be a software module, or may be a plurality of software modules that are distributed and associated with each other.

[0107] Specifically, the event management server may be an SM-DS, or may be another server that has event management functions such as event registration, event deletion, event sending, and event modification, or may be a server that provides one or more SM-DP+ addresses or OPS addresses to the terminal device so that the terminal device establishes a communication connection to an SM-DS+ or an OPS.

[0108] S102. The event management server searches currently stored event records for a target event record, where a group event identifier in the target event record matches the target identifier in the first information, and the group event identifier includes at least one eUICC firmware version and at least one issuer identifier.

[0109] Optionally, there may be a plurality of event records stored in the event management server, for example, an event record corresponding to an eUICC 1, an event record corresponding to an eUICC 2, and an event record corresponding to an eUICC 3.

[0110] Optionally, an event record may be corresponding to an eUICC by using an eUICC identity (eUICC Identity, EID) or by using a group event identifier.

[0111] For example, when there is a one-to-one correspondence between the event record and the eUICC, the correspondence may be indicated by using the EID, to be specific, the EID is stored in the event record, and an eUICC that can match the EID in the event record is the eUICC corresponding to the event record. When there is a one-to-many correspondence between the event record and the eUICC, the correspondence may be indicated by using a group event identifier, to be specific, the group event identifier is stored in the event record, and an eUICC that can match the group event identifier in the event record is the eUICC corresponding to the event record.

[0112] Specifically, the group event identifier may be an identifier shared by a plurality of eUICCs, and the group event identifier is used to indicate that the target event record may be corresponding to a plurality of terminal devices or a plurality of eUICCs, and that a service provided by a remote server corresponding to the target event record may be corresponding to a plurality of terminal devices or a plurality of eUICCs.

[0113] Optionally, that the group event identifier matches the target identifier may indicate that the group event identifier is the same as the target identifier or the target identifier belongs to the group event identifier.

[0114] Specifically, the target event record may be registered by the event management server before the terminal device sends the first information to the event management server, to be specific, before the event management server receives the first information sent by the terminal device, the method further includes: The event management server receives an event registration request sent by an update server, where the registration request carries the group event identifier; and the event management server stores the group event identifier in the target event record based on the registration request.

[0115] In an optional implementation, the terminal may execute an operation of matching the group event identifier with an identifier locally stored in the terminal device, to be specific, the terminal device receives event records sent by the event management server, and the terminal device selects, from the event records, the target event record that matches the locally stored identifier. For example, the target identifier in the first information includes some group event identifiers. The event management server searches the currently stored event records for event records that match the target identifier. The event management server sends the found event records that match the target identifier to the terminal device. The terminal device extracts complete group event identifiers from the event records, and matches the group event identifiers with locally stored identification information one by one, to determine the target event record. In this implementation, the target identifier includes only a part of the group event identifier, and there may be one or more event records that match the target identifier. The terminal determines the target event record based on the received one or more event records. To be specific, in this implementation, the event server may perform preliminary filtering on the event records to screen out some event records that meet a condition, and then the terminal device performs final filtering on the event records to screen out the target event record whose group event identifier matches the identification information of the terminal device.

[0116] S103. The event management server sends the target event record to the terminal device, and the terminal device receives the target event record.

[0117] Optionally, the target event record may further include an address of the update server.

[0118] S104. The terminal device downloads an eUICC firmware version update package.

[0119] Specifically, a procedure of downloading the eUICC firmware version update package by the terminal device may be shown in FIG. 3. FIG. 3 is a schematic flowchart of a method for downloading an eUICC firmware version update package by a terminal device according to an embodiment of this application. As shown in the figure, the method includes at least the following steps.

[0120] S201. The terminal device extracts the address of the update server from the target event record.

[0121] Specifically, the update server may be the OPS, or may be another server that provides an eUICC firmware update package download service for the terminal device. For example, the update server may also be an SM-DP+ or the like.

[0122] S202. The terminal device sends a current eUICC firmware version to the update server, and the update server receives the current eUICC firmware version.

[0123] In an optional implementation, the terminal device may add the current eUICC firmware version to a first command (for example, AuthenticateClient) and send the first command to the update server in a bidirectional authentication process with the update server. Alternatively, the terminal device may add the current eUICC firmware version to a second command (for example, InitiateAuthentication) and send the second command to the update server in a bidirectional authentication process with the update server.

[0124] S203. The update server determines, based on the current eUICC firmware version, the eUICC firmware version update package required for updating the terminal device to the target firmware version.

[0125] Specifically, the eUICC firmware version update package may be an eUICC firmware version update incremental package, an eUICC firmware version update full package, or an eUICC firmware version bug fix package. The firmware version update incremental package includes a module part in the eUICC firmware version. The firmware version update incremental package may also be in a form of a differential package, to be specific, the firmware version update incremental package includes only a different part between a new firmware version and an old firmware version. Therefore, the eUICC firmware version update incremental package may be used to complete an update operation in a manner of patching the eUICC firmware version. The eUICC firmware version update full package includes a completed firmware version installation package, and an eUICC needs to enter a recovery mode in advance, so that the eUICC firmware version update full package can be installed. The eUICC firmware version bug fix package may be an update package generated to resolve a bug fix problem of an eUICC platform, an eUICC system, or an eUICC platform and an eUICC system.

[0126] S204. The update server sends the eUICC firmware version update package to the terminal device, and the terminal device receives the eUICC firmware version update package.

[0127] S105. The terminal device updates a firmware version of an eUICC based on the eUICC firmware version update package.

[0128] To facilitate clearer description of the technical solutions in the embodiments of this application, the following describes, by using the LPA and the eUICC of the terminal device as independent execution bodies, a specific implementation process of a method for updating an eUICC firmware version by the terminal device. It should be understood that after an interaction step (to be specific, an internal interaction process of the terminal device) between the LPA and the eUICC is omitted, operation steps performed by the LPA and the eUICC are operation steps performed by the terminal device. The following describes the foregoing embodiment in detail by using an SM-DS as the event management server and an OPS as the update server.

[0129] FIG. 4A and FIG. 4B are a schematic flowchart of another method for updating an eUICC firmware version according to an embodiment of this application. As shown in the figure, the method includes the following steps.

[0130] S301. The OPS sends an event registration request (for example, RegisterEvent) to the SM-DS, where the event registration request carries a group event identifier, and the SM-DS receives the event registration request, where the group event identifier includes at least one eUICC firmware version and at least one issuer identifier.

[0131] Optionally, before sending the event registration request to the SM-DS, the OPS may further perform bidirectional authentication with the SM-DS.

[0132] Optionally, the event registration request may further carry an address of the OPS and an event identity (Event Identity, EventID).

[0133] Optionally, the group event identifier may further include a custom identifier or a country code (country code).

[0134] Specifically, when the group event identifier is an eUICC firmware version, the event registration request may carry at least one eUICC firmware version. It indicates that the OPS may currently provide an eUICC firmware version update service for an eUICC corresponding to the at least one eUICC firmware version.

[0135] For example, the OPS may currently provide the eUICC firmware version update service for eUICCs in a plurality of versions. A target firmware version is 50000, and the OPS may provide the eUICC firmware version update service for an eUICC whose eUICC firmware version is 49999, 49998, or 49997. In this case, the OPS adds 49999, 49998, and 49997 to the event registration request and sends the event registration request to the SM-DS.

[0136] Optionally, the custom identifier may include additional issuer information (additional issuer information) or a personal identification number (individual identification number) in a preset custom bit.

[0137] Optionally, there may be one or more preset custom bits. For example, the custom identifier may be a character within a digit range of a personal identification number, for example, the custom identifier is a character within a range from 100100110111 to 101110110101. The custom identifier may also be a character that is located at an nth bit of the personal identification number (a value of n is 1 to 12), or the custom identifier may also be characters that are located at odd bits of the personal identification number, to be specific, characters that are located at the first bit, the third bit, the fifth bit, the seventh bit, the ninth bit, and the eleventh bit of the personal identification number. The custom identifier may also be characters that are located at even bits of the personal identification number, to be specific, a second bit, a fourth bit, a sixth bit, an eighth bit, a tenth bit, and a twelfth bit of the personal identification number. The custom identifier may further be characters that are located at the first bit to the fifth bit of the personal identification number. The custom identifier may further be characters that are located at the third bit to the eighth bit of the personal identification number, or the like. The personal identification number includes 12 bits in total. There may be a plurality of setting rules for the preset custom bit. Correspondingly, different preset custom bits indicate different custom identifiers. Details are not listed herein.

[0138] S302. The SM-DS stores an event record.

[0139] Specifically, the SM-DS stores, in the event record, the group event identifier in the event registration request.

[0140] Optionally, the SM-DS may further store the address of the OPS and the event identity in the event record.

[0141] So far, the SM-DS stores the event record that includes the group event identifier and that waits for an LPA to query, where the group event identifier corresponds to at least one eUICC.

[0142] S303. The LPA establishes a hypertext transfer protocol secure (HyperText Transfer Protocol Secure, HTTPS) connection to the SM-DS.

[0143] Specifically, in a condition such as a user operation, timing triggering, or eUICC triggering, the LPA initiates a connection request to the SM-DS, to query whether there is an event record corresponding to the eUICC.

[0144] Optionally, the LPA may obtain a default SM-DS address from the eUICC. For example, a terminal device is customized and manufactured by an operator A, and the operator A specifies that an SM-DS address is preset in an eUICC, or a terminal manufacturer presets an SM-DS address shared by a plurality of operators in an eUICC.

[0145] Optionally, the HTTPS may run on a transport layer security (Transport Layer Security, TLS) connection. For example, the LPA performs unidirectional certificate authentication on the SM-DS, and establishes the TLS connection after the authentication succeeds.

[0146] S304. An eUICC sends first information to the LPA, and the LPA receives the first information, where the first information includes a target identifier.

[0147] Optionally, the first information may be second authentication information sent by the terminal device to the SM-DS in a bidirectional authentication process between the terminal device and the SM-DS.

[0148] Optionally, the first information may include eUICC to-be-signed data (for example, euiccSigned1), a signature value (for example, euiccSignature1) of the eUICC to-be-signed data, an eUICC certificate (for example, CERT.EUICC.ECDSA), an eUICC manufacturer certificate (for example, CERT.EUM.ECDSA), and the like.

[0149] Specifically, the eUICC to-be-signed data (for example, euiccSigned1) may include eUICC information, where the eUICC information in the eUICC to-be-signed data (for example, euiccSigned1) is additional eUICC information (for example, euiccInfo2). The eUICC certificate (for example, CERT.EUICC.ECDSA) includes an eUICC identity (eUICC Identity, EID).

[0150] Specifically, the additional eUICC information (for example, euiccInfo2) includes an eUICC firmware version (euiccFirmwareVersion) and eUICC performance (UICCCapability).

[0151] Optionally, the first information may be information sent by the terminal device to the SM-DS after the bidirectional authentication process between the terminal device and the SM-DS ends. For example, the first information may include the additional eUICC information (for example, euiccInfo2), the EID, and the like.

[0152] Optionally, the target identifier may include at least one of the following information: the eUICC firmware version, an issuer identifier, a custom identifier, or a country code.

[0153] Specifically, the eUICC firmware version in the first information is a current firmware version of the eUICC. For example, if the current firmware version of the eUICC is 49997, the eUICC firmware version in the first information is 49997.

[0154] S305. The LPA sends the first information to the SM-DS, and the SM-DS receives the first information.

[0155] Optionally, the LPA may add the first information to a first command (for example, AuthenticateClient) and send the first command to the SM-DS.

[0156] S306. The SM-DS searches currently stored event records for a target event record, where the group event identifier in the target event record matches the target identifier in the first information.

[0157] Specifically, the SM-DS may obtain the target identifier from the first information, obtain the group event identifier from the currently stored event records, and compare the target identifier with the group event identifier. If the target identifier is the same as the group event identifier or the target identifier belongs to the group event identifier, it is determined that the group event identifier in the target event record matches the target identifier in the first information.

[0158] Optionally, if the group event identifier is an eUICC firmware version, the SM-DS may obtain the eUICC firmware version from the additional eUICC information (for example, euiccInfo2) in the first information as the target identifier in the first information. The SM-DS may also obtain the EID from the eUICC certificate (for example, CERT.EUICC.ECDSA) in the first information, extract the eUICC firmware version from the EID as the target identifier in the first information, and separately compare the target identifier with a group event identifier in at least one event record, to determine, in the at least one event record, the target event record whose group event identifier matches the target identifier.

[0159] Specifically, the SM-DS may extract characters at the ninth bit to the thirteenth bit of the EID, and determine the characters as the eUICC firmware version, to be specific, the target identifier in the first information.

[0160] For example, the group event identifier is an eUICC firmware version, and eUICC firmware versions in an event record 1 are 49999, 49998, and 49997. The eUICC firmware version that is obtained by the SM-DS from the first information is 49997, and 49997 belongs to the group event identifier. Therefore, the group event identifier matches the target identifier, and the event record 1 is determined as the target event record.

[0161] Optionally, if the group event identifier is an issuer identifier, the SM-DS may obtain the EID from the eUICC certificate (such as CERT.EUICC.ECDSA) in the first information, extract the issuer identifier from the EID as the target identifier in the first information, and separately compare the target identifier with a group event identifier in at least one event record, to determine, in the at least one event record, the target event record whose group event identifier matches the target identifier.

[0162] Specifically, the SM-DS may extract characters at the sixth bit to the eighth bit of the EID, and determine the characters as the issuer identifier, to be specific, the target identifier in the first information.

[0163] For example, the group event identifier is an issuer identifier, and an issuer identifier in an event record 2 is 1111. If characters extracted by the SM-DS at the fifth bit to the eighth bit of the EID are 1111, it is determined that the group event identifier matches the target identifier, and the event record 2 is determined as the target event record.

[0164] Optionally, if the group event identifier is the custom identifier and the custom identifier is the additional issuer information, the SM-DS may obtain the EID from the eUICC certificate (such as CERT.EUICC.ECDSA) in the first information, extract the additional issuer information from the EID as the target identifier in the first information, and separately compare the target identifier with a group event identifier in at least one event record, to determine, in the at least one event record, the target event record whose group event identifier matches the target identifier.

[0165] Specifically, the SM-DS may extract characters at the fourteenth bit to the eighteenth bit of the EID, and determine the characters as the additional issuer information, to be specific, the target identifier in the first information.

[0166] For example, the group event identifier is the custom identifier and the custom identifier is the additional issuer information, and additional issuer information in an event record 3 is 22222. If characters extracted by the SM-DS at the fourteenth bit to the eighteenth bit of the EID are 22222, it is determined that the group event identifier matches the target identifier, and the event record 3 is determined as the target event record.

[0167] Optionally, if the group event identifier is the custom identifier and the custom identifier is the personal identification number in the preset custom bit, the SM-DS may obtain the EID from the eUICC certificate (such as CERT.EUICC.ECDSA) in the first information, extract the personal identification number in the preset custom bit from the EID as the target identifier in the first information, and separately compare the target identifier with a group event identifier in at least one event record, to determine, in the at least one event record, the target event record whose group event identifier matches the target identifier.

[0168] Specifically, the SM-DS may extract characters at the nineteenth bit to the thirtieth bit of the EID, extract characters in the preset custom bit from the extracted characters at the nineteenth bit to the thirtieth bit, and determine the characters the target identifier in the first information.

[0169] For example, the group event identifier is the custom identifier and the custom identifier is the personal identification number in the preset custom bit, the preset custom bit is the second bit to the fourth bit of the personal identification number, and a personal identification number in the preset custom bit in an event record 4 is 333. If characters extracted by the SM-DS from the twentieth bit to the twenty-second bit of the EID are 333, it is determined that the group event matches the target identifier, and the event record 4 is determined as the target event record.

[0170] Optionally, if the group event identifier is an issuer identifier, the SM-DS may obtain the EID from the eUICC certificate (such as CERT.EUICC.ECDSA) in the first information, extract the country code from the EID as the target identifier in the first information, and separately compare the target identifier with a group event identifier in at least one event record, to determine, in the at least one event record, the target event record whose group event identifier matches the target identifier.

[0171] Specifically, the SM-DS may extract characters at the third bit to the fifth bit of the EID, and determine the characters as the country code, to be specific, the target identifier in the first information.

[0172] Optionally, if the group event identifier is two or three types of information in an eUICC firmware version, an issuer identifier, the custom identifier, or the country code, corresponding information may be obtained according to the foregoing method for separately obtaining the eUICC firmware version, the issuer identifier, or the custom identifier, the corresponding information is used as the target identifier in the first information, and the target identifier is compared with a group event identifier in an event record, to determine the target event record whose event identifier matches the target identifier.

[0173] S307. The SM-DS sends the target event record to the LPA, and the LPA receives the target event record.

[0174] So far, interaction between the LPA and the SM-DS ends, the LPA obtains the target event record, and the LPA may process the target event to obtain information in the target event record, and then performs a corresponding operation based on the information in the event record, for example, performs operations corresponding to step S308 and a step subsequent to step S308.

[0175] Optionally, when there are a plurality of target event records, the LPA may process the target event records in sequence.

[0176] S308. The LPA extracts the address of the OPS from the target event record.

[0177] S309. The LPA establishes an HTTPS connection to the OPS.

[0178] S310. The LPA sends a current eUICC firmware version of the terminal device to the OPS, and the OPS receives the current eUICC firmware version of the terminal device.

[0179] Optionally, the LPA may add the current eUICC firmware version of the terminal device to a second command (for example, InitiateAuthentication), and send the second command to the OPS.

[0180] Optionally, the second command (for example, InitiateAuthentication) may further carry an eUICC random number (for example, eUICCChallenge1), eUICC information, and the address of the OPS. The eUICC information in the second command is initial eUICC information (for example, euiccInfo1).

[0181] S311. The OPS sends third information to the LPA, and the LPA receives the third information.

[0182] Optionally, the third information may be first authentication information sent by the OPS to the terminal device in a bidirectional authentication process between the terminal device and the OPS.

[0183] Optionally, the third information may include a session identity (TransactionIdentity, TransactionID), authentication verification to-be-signed data (for example, OPSSigned1), a signature value of the authentication verification to-be-signed data (for example, OPSSignature1), a target public key identifier (for example, euiccCiPKIdToBeUsed), an authentication certificate of the update server (for example, CERT.OPSauth.ECDSA).

[0184] Optionally, the authentication verification to-be-signed data (for example, OPSSigned1) may include the session identity, the current eUICC firmware version of the terminal device, the eUICC random number (for example, euiccChange1), a random number of the update server (for example, OPSChanllenge), and the address of the OPS.

[0185] S312. The LPA sends the third information to the eUICC, and the eUICC receives the third information.

[0186] Optionally, the LPA may add the third information to a third command (for example, AuthenticateServer) and send the third command to the eUICC.

[0187] S313. The eUICC sends second information to the LPA, and the LPA receives the second information, where the second information includes the target identifier, the eUICC performance, and the eUICC firmware version.

[0188] Optionally, the second information may be second authentication information sent by the terminal device to the OPS in the bidirectional authentication process between the terminal device and the OPS.

[0189] Optionally, the second information may include the eUICC to-be-signed data (for example, euiccSigned1), the signature value (for example, euiccSignature1) of the eUICC to-be-signed data, the eUICC certificate (for example, CERT.EUICC.ECDSA), the eUICC manufacturer certificate (for example, CERT.EUM.ECDSA), and the like.

[0190] Optionally, the second information may be information sent by the terminal device to the OPS after the bidirectional authentication between the terminal device and the OPS ends. For example, the second information may include the additional eUICC information (for example, euiccInfo2) and the EID.

[0191] S314. The LPA sends the second information to the OPS, and the OPS receives the second information.

[0192] Optionally, the LPA may add the second information to a first command (for example, AuthenticateClient) and send the first command to the OPS.

[0193] S315. The OPS determines whether the target identifier matches a locally stored group event identifier.

[0194] Optionally, for a specific implementation of determining whether the target identifier matches the group event identifier, refer to descriptions of step S306. Details are not described again.

[0195] Specifically, when the target identifier matches the locally stored group event identifier, the OPS performs step S316.

[0196] S316. The OPS checks whether the eUICC performance and the eUICC firmware version meet a performance requirement and a firmware version requirement of a target firmware version.

[0197] Specifically, the OPS may check whether the eUICC performance can support updating the eUICC to the target firmware version. The OPS may check whether the eUICC firmware version belongs to a firmware version range in which a firmware version can be updated to the target firmware version.

[0198] For example, the OPS currently provides an eUICC firmware version update server for eUICCs whose eUICC firmware versions are 49997, 49998, and 49999. If the eUICC firmware version of the eUICC is one of eUICC firmware versions: 49997, 49998, and 49999, the eUICC firmware version meets the eUICC firmware version requirement of the target firmware version.

[0199] Optionally, after the OPS checks the performance of the eUICC and determines whether the firmware version of the eUICC can be updated to the target firmware version, the method further includes: generating third data (for example, patch Metadata); generating first to-be-signed data (for example, OPSSigned2); generating a signature value of the first to-be-signed data (for example, OPSSignature2); and sending second data to the LPA.

[0200] Optionally, the third data (for example, patch Metadata) may include the target firmware version.

[0201] Optionally, the second data may include a session identity, the third data (for example, patch Metadata), the first to-be-signed data (for example, OPSSigned2), the signature value of the first to-be-signed data (for example, OPSSignature2), and the like.

[0202] Specifically, the first to-be-signed data (for example, OPSSigned2) may include the session identity, the target firmware version, a confirmation code flag (Confirmation Code Required Flag), a temporary key pair public key (for example, bppEuiccOtpk), and the like.

[0203] Optionally, after receiving the second data sent by the OPS, the LPA may add the second data to a to-be-downloaded command (for example, PrepareDownload) and send the to-be-downloaded command to the eUICC.

[0204] S317. The OPS determines, based on the current eUICC firmware version of the terminal, an eUICC firmware version update package required for updating the terminal device to the target firmware version.

[0205] In an implementation, the OPS may obtain the current eUICC firmware version of the terminal device by using step S310. In another implementation, the OPS may also obtain the current eUICC firmware version of the terminal device from the second information.

[0206] In a possible implementation, different eUICC firmware version update packages may be designed for different eUICC firmware versions, where different eUICC firmware version update packages include different quantities of system patches and different quantities of function codes. The OPS may search for an eUICC firmware version update package corresponding to the current eUICC firmware version of the terminal device, and determine the eUICC firmware version update package as the eUICC firmware version update package required for updating the terminal device to the target firmware version.

[0207] For example, the target firmware version is 50000, and there are currently three types of eUICC firmware version update packages in the OPS, where the eUICC firmware version update packages are respectively a [49997-50000] update package, a [49998-50000] update package, and a [49999-50000] update package. The [49997-50000] update package is an eUICC firmware version update package prepared for an eUICC firmware version: 49997, the [49998-50000] update package is an eUICC firmware version update package prepared for an eUICC firmware version: 49998, and the [49999-50000] update package is an eUICC firmware version update package prepared for an eUICC firmware version: 49999. If the current eUICC firmware version of the terminal device is 49997, the OPS determines that the eUICC firmware version update package required for updating the terminal device to the target firmware version is the [49997-50000] update package. If the current eUICC firmware version of the terminal device is 49998, the OPS determines that the eUICC firmware version update package required for updating the terminal device to the target firmware version is the [49998-50000] update package. If the current eUICC firmware version of the terminal device is 49999, the OPS determines that the eUICC firmware version update package required for updating the terminal device to the target firmware version is the [49999-50000] update package.

[0208] S318. The OPS sends the eUICC firmware version update package to the LPA, and the LPA receives the eUICC firmware version update package.

[0209] S319. The LPA sends the eUICC firmware version update package to the eUICC, and the eUICC receives the eUICC firmware version update package.

[0210] Optionally, the LPA may add the eUICC firmware version update package to a fourth command (for example, LoadBoundPackage) and send the fourth command to the eUICC.

[0211] S320. The eUICC updates the firmware version of the eUICC based on the eUICC firmware version update package.

[0212] Specifically, the eUICC updates an eUICC platform based on firmware version update data in the eUICC firmware version update package, or updates an eUICC operating system based on firmware version update data in the eUICC firmware version update package, or simultaneously updates an eUICC platform and an eUICC operating system based on firmware version update data in the eUICC firmware version update package, or updates an RSP version based on firmware version update data in the eUICC firmware version update package, or updates a TS 102241 version or a global platform (globalplatform) version based on firmware version update data in the eUICC firmware version update package.

[0213] Specifically, the eUICC may upgrade a version of the eUICC platform to a target version, or the eUICC may upgrade a version of the eUICC operating system to a target version, or the eUICC may upgrade both a version of the eUICC platform and a version of the eUICC operating system to target versions, or the eUICC may upgrade the RSP version to a target version.

[0214] S321. The eUICC updates the eUICC firmware version in the eUICC information.

[0215] Optionally, the eUICC may update the eUICC firmware version in the eUICC information based on first data (for example, StoreMetadata) in the eUICC firmware version update package, where the first data includes the target firmware version.

[0216] Optionally, the eUICC may update the eUICC firmware version in the eUICC information based on first data (for example, encrypted data) in the eUICC firmware version update package, where the first data includes the target firmware version.

[0217] Optionally, the eUICC may also update the eUICC firmware version in the eUICC information based on the second data. For example, the eUICC may update the eUICC firmware version in the eUICC information based on the third data (for example, patch Metadata) in the second data, or the eUICC may update the eUICC firmware version in the eUICC information based on the first to-be-signed data (for example, OPSSigned2) in the second data. Optionally, the eUICC firmware version in the eUICC information may be updated before the eUICC updates the firmware version.

[0218] Specifically, the eUICC may update/replace the firmware version in the eUICC information with the target firmware version.

[0219] For example, before the eUICC firmware version is updated, the eUICC firmware version in the eUICC information is 49997, and the target firmware version is 50000. After the firmware version is updated, the eUICC updates the eUICC firmware version in the eUICC information to 50000.

[0220] Optionally, after updating the eUICC firmware version in the eUICC information, the eUICC may send a notification message to the LPA. The notification message may be carried by an application protocol data unit (APDU). The notification message may include a firmware version update result of the current eUICC. The firmware version upgrade result may further include the target firmware version. The notification message may include one or more of notification metadata, a session identity, a final result, an SM-DP+ object identifier, and an eUICC signature. The notification metadata may include a sequence number and a receiving address. The final result may carry a final updated firmware version status.

[0221] In the method shown in FIG. 4A and FIG. 4B, the group event identifier may be corresponding to a plurality of eUICCs, and is applicable to a scenario in which an eUICC firmware version is updated, where eUICC firmware version update is performed for a plurality of eUICCs. The OPS sends, to the SM-DS, the event registration request that carries the group event identifier, so that the SM-DS completes event registration. One event record may be corresponding to a plurality of eUICCs or terminal devices, to avoid a case in which a plurality of events are registered for an eUICC firmware version update service, thereby improving efficiency.

[0222] In an optional solution, when there are two eUICCs in the terminal device and both eUICC firmware versions of the two eUICCs need to be updated, the eUICC firmware versions of the two eUICCs may be updated concurrently. It is assumed that the two eUICCs are respectively a first eUICC, namely, an eUICC 1, and a second eUICC, namely, an eUICC 2. The following separately describes an implementation procedure of updating the eUICC firmware versions of the two eUICCs concurrently when the eUICC 1 and the eUICC 1 belong to a same manufacturer and an implementation procedure of updating the eUICC firmware versions of the two eUICCs concurrently when the eUICC 1 and the eUICC 1 belong to different manufacturers.

[0223] First, a case in which the eUICC 1 and the eUICC 2 belong to different manufacturers is described. It is assumed that an update server corresponding to the eUICC 1 is an OPS 1, and an update server corresponding to the eUICC 2 is an OPS 2. An implementation procedure may be shown in FIG. 5A and FIG. 5B. FIG. 5A and FIG. 5B are a schematic flowchart of still another method for updating an eUICC firmware version according to an embodiment of this application. As shown in the figure, the method includes the following steps.

[0224] S401. The OPS 1 sends an event registration request to an SM-DS, where the event registration request carries a first group event identifier, and the SM-DS receives the event registration request, where the first group event identifier includes at least one eUICC firmware version and at least one issuer identifier.

[0225] S402. The SM-DS stores a first event record, where the first event record includes the first group event identifier.

[0226] S403. The OPS 2 sends an event registration request to the SM-DS, where the event registration request carries a second group event identifier, and the SM-DS receives the event registration request, where the second group event identifier includes at least one eUICC firmware version and at least one issuer identifier.

[0227] S404. The SM-DS stores a second event record, where the second event record includes the second group event identifier.

[0228] Specifically, for specific implementations of steps S401 and S402 and steps S403 and S404, refer to descriptions of steps S301 and S302 in the embodiment corresponding to FIG. 3. Details are not described again. It should be understood that a type/composition/definition/structure of the first group event identifier in step S401 and a type/composition/definition/structure of the second group event identifier in step S403 may be the same as that of the group event identifier in step S301. The group event identifier in step S301 may include the first group event identifier and/or the second group event identifier. A type/composition/definition/structure of the first event record in step S402 and a type/composition/definition/structure of the second event record in step S404 may be the same as that of the target event record in step S302. The target event record in step S302 may include the first event record and/or the second event record.

[0229] It should be noted that steps S401 and S402 and steps S403 and S404 may be mutually independent and concurrent steps. In an optional embodiment, steps S401 and S402 and steps S403 and S404 may be performed simultaneously, or steps S401 and S402 may be performed after steps S403 and S404 are performed.

[0230] So far, the SM-DS stores the first event record corresponding to the eUICC 1 and the second event record corresponding to the eUICC 2, and where the first event record and the second event record wait for an LPA to query.

[0231] S405. The LPA establishes an HTTPS connection to the SM-DS.

[0232] Specifically, for a specific implementation of step S405, refer to descriptions of step S303. Details are not described herein again.

[0233] S406. The eUICC 1 sends first sub-information to the LPA, and the LPA receives the first sub-information, where the first sub-information includes a first target identifier.

[0234] Optionally, the first sub-information may be first authentication sub-information in second authentication information sent by a terminal device to the SM-DS in a bidirectional authentication process between the terminal device and the SM-DS.

[0235] Optionally, the first sub-information may include first eUICC to-be-signed data (for example, euicc1Signed1), a signature value (for example, euicc1Signature1) of the first eUICC to-be-signed data, a first eUICC certificate (for example, CERT.EUICC1.ECDSA), a first eUICC manufacturer certificate (for example, CERT.EUM1.ECDSA), and the like.

[0236] The first eUICC to-be-signed data (for example, euicc1Signed1) is eUICC to-be-signed data, and may specifically include first eUICC information. The first eUICC information in the first eUICC to-be-signed data (for example, euicc1Signed1) is first additional eUICC information (for example, euicc1Info2). The first eUICC certificate (for example, CERT.EUICC1.ECDSA) is an eUICC certificate, and may specifically include a first eUICC identity (for example, EID1).

[0237] The first target identifier is a target identifier, and may specifically include at least one of the following information: an eUICC firmware version of the eUICC 1, an issuer identifier of the eUICC 1, a custom identifier of the eUICC 1, or a country code of the eUICC 1.

[0238] S407. The eUICC 2 sends second sub-information to the LPA, and the LPA receives the second sub-information, where the second sub-information includes a second target identifier.

[0239] Optionally, the second sub-information may be second authentication sub-information in the second authentication information sent by the terminal device to the SM-DS in the bidirectional authentication process between the terminal device and the SM-DS.

[0240] Optionally, the second sub-information may include second eUICC to-be-signed data (for example, euicc2Signed1), a signature value (for example, euicc2Signature1) of the second eUICC to-be-signed data, a second eUICC certificate (for example, CERT.EUICC2.ECDSA), a second eUICC manufacturer certificate (for example, CERT.EUM2.ECDSA), and the like.

[0241] The second eUICC to-be-signed data (for example, euicc2Signed1) is eUICC to-be-signed data, and may specifically include second eUICC information. The second eUICC information in the second eUICC to-be-signed data (for example, euicc2Signed1) is second additional eUICC information (for example, euicc2Info2). The second eUICC certificate (for example, CERT.EUICC2.ECDSA) is an eUICC certificate, and may specifically include a second eUICC identity (for example, EID2).

[0242] The second target identifier is a target identifier, and may specifically include at least one of the following information: an eUICC firmware version of the eUICC 2, an issuer identifier of the eUICC 2, a custom identifier of the eUICC 2, or a country code of the eUICC 2.

[0337] In an optional implementation, when there is an execution sequence between steps S527 to S530 and steps S531 to S534, to be specific, if the eUICC firmware version of the eUICC 1 needs to be updated before the eUICC firmware version of the eUICC 2 is updated, or the eUICC firmware version of the eUICC 2 needs to be updated before the eUICC firmware version of the eUICC 1 is updated, a notification message may be set after previous eUICC update ends.

The LPA may obtain, from the SM-DS, the target event record corresponding to both the eUICC 1 and the eUICC, and simultaneously complete authentication of the two eUICCs with the OPS. The LPA may send eUICC firmware version update packages to the corresponding eUICCs based on the EID of the eUICC 1 and the EID of the eUICC 2, so as to improve eUICC firmware version update efficiency.

[0341] In the foregoing embodiments, when there are two eUICCs in the terminal device, if the two eUICCs need to interact with a same remote server, the terminal device may implement concurrent bidirectional authentication between the remote server and the two eUICCs, and a procedure in which the two eUICCs concurrently perform bidirectional authentication with the remote server may be shown in FIG. 7.

The following describes a specific implementation process of implementing the bidirectional authentication method by the terminal device by using the LPA and the eUICCs of the terminal device as independent execution bodies. It should be understood that, after interaction steps (to be specific, an internal interaction process of the terminal device) between the LPA and the eUICCs are omitted, operation steps performed by the LPA and the eUICCs are operation steps performed by the terminal device. The eUICCs include a first eUICC, namely, an eUICC 1, and a second eUICC, namely, an eUICC 2.

[0371] Optionally, the remote server may determine the target signature public key identifier based on the first signature public key identifier list (for example, euiccCiPKIdListForSigning1) in the first eUICC information and the second signature public key identifier list (for example, euiccCiPKIdListForSigning2) in the second eUICC information.

[0372] Optionally, there may be one or two target signature public key identifiers. When the first signature public key identifier list (for example, euiccCiPKIdListForSigning1), the second signature public key identifier list (for example, euiccCiPKIdListForSigning2), and a local certificate issuer (Certificate Issuer, CI) public key identifier list include a same signature public key identifier, the remote server may determine, as the target signature public key identifier (for example, euiccCiPKIdToBeUsed), the signature public key identifier that is in each of the three lists. When the first signature public key identifier list and the second signature public key identifier list do not include a same signature public key identifier, the remote server may select a first signature public key identifier (for example, euiccCiPKIdToBeUsed1) that is in both the first signature public key identifier list and the local certificate issuer public key identifier list, and a second signature public key identifier (for example, euiccCiPKIdToBeUsed2) that is in both the second signature public key identifier list and the local certificate issuer public key identifier list, and determine the two signature public key identifiers as the target signature public key identifiers. To be specific, the target signature public key identifier may be euiccCiPKIdToBeUsed, or the target signature public key identifiers may be euiccCiPKIdToBeUsed1 and euiccCiPKIdToBeUsed2.

[0373] In an optional implementation, the local CI public key identifier list may further include a local CI public key identifier set.

[0374] Specifically, when the first signature public key identifier list (for example, euiccCiPKIdListForSigning1), the second signature public key identifier list (for example, euiccCiPKIdListForSigning2), and the local CI public key identifier list include a plurality of same signature public key identifiers, a CI public key identifier corresponding to a CI public key with a highest priority may be selected as the target signature public key identifier (for example, euiccCiPKIdToBeUsed) based on a priority sequence of a plurality of signature public keys corresponding to the plurality of same signature public key identifiers.

[0375] Specifically, when the first signature public key identifier list (for example, euiccCiPKIdListForSigning1) and the local CI public key identifier list include a plurality of same CI public key identifiers, a CI public key identifier corresponding to a CI public key with a highest priority may be selected as the first signature public key identifier (for example, euiccCiPKIdToBeUsed1) based on a priority sequence of a plurality of CI public keys corresponding to the plurality of same CI public key identifiers.

[0376] Specifically, when the second signature public key identifier list (for example, euiccCiPKIdListForSigning2) and the local signature public key identifier list include a plurality of same signature public key identifiers, a signature public key identifier corresponding to a signature public key with a highest priority may be selected as the second signature public key identifier (for example, euiccCiPKIdToBeUsed2) based on a priority sequence of a plurality of signature public keys corresponding to the plurality of same signature public key identifiers.

[0377] Optionally, the remote server may determine the target verification certificate based on the first verification public key identifier list in the first eUICC information and the second verification public key identifier list in the second eUICC information.

[0378] Optionally, there may be one or two target verification certificates. When the first verification public key identifier list (for example, euiccCiPKIdListForVerification1), the second verification public key identifier list (for example, euiccCiPKIdListForVerification2), and the local certificate issuer public key identifier list include a same verification public key identifier, the remote server may determine, as the target verification certificate, a certificate (for example, CERT.DSauth.ECDSA) corresponding to a CI public key identifier that is in each of the three lists. When the first verification public key identifier list and the second verification public key identifier list do not include a same CI public key identifier, the remote server may select a first target verification certificate (for example, CERT.DSauth1.ECDSA) corresponding to a first CI public key identifier that is in both the first verification public key identifier list and the local certificate issuer public key identifier list, and a second target verification certificate (for example, CERT.DSauth2.ECDSA) corresponding to a second CI public key identifier that is in both the second verification public key identifier list and the local certificate issuer public key identifier list, and determine the two target verification certificates as the target verification certificates. To be specific, the target certificate may be CERT.DSauth.ECDSA, or the target verification certificates may be CERT.DSauth1.ECDSA and CERT.DSauth2.ECDSA.

[0379] Specifically, when the first verification public key identifier list (for example, euiccCiPKIdListForVerification1), the second verification public key identifier list (for example, euiccCiPKIdListForVerification2), and the local certificate issuer public key identifier list include a plurality of same CI public key identifiers, a CI public key identifier corresponding to a CI public key with a highest priority may be selected as a target verification public key identifier based on a priority sequence of a plurality of CI public keys corresponding to the plurality of same CI public key identifiers, and a verification certificate corresponding to the target verification public key identifier is determined as the target verification certificate (for example, CERT.DSauth.ECDSA).

[0380] Specifically, when the first verification public key identifier list (for example, euiccCiPKIdListForVerification1) and the local CI public key identifier list include a plurality of same CI public key identifiers, a CI public key identifier corresponding to a CI public key with a highest priority may be selected as a first verification public key identifier based on a priority sequence of a plurality of CI public keys corresponding to the plurality of same CI public key identifiers, and a verification certificate corresponding to the first verification public key identifier is determined as the first target verification certificate (for example, CERT.DSauth1.ECDSA).

[0381] Specifically, when the second verification public key identifier list (for example, euiccCiPKIdListForVerification2) and the local verification public key identifier list include a plurality of same CI public key identifiers, a CI public key identifier corresponding to a CI public key with a highest priority may be selected as a second verification public key identifier based on a priority sequence of a plurality of CI public keys corresponding to the plurality of same CI public key identifiers, and a verification certificate corresponding to the second verification public key identifier is determined as the second target verification certificate (for example, CERT.DSauth2.ECDSA).

[0382] Optionally, after the remote server determines the target verification information, the method further includes: generating a session identity; generating a random number of the remote server (for example, serverChallenge), where the serverChallenge includes but is not limited to OPSChallenge, DSChallenge, and DPChallenge; generating first authentication verification to-be-signed data (for example, serverSigned11), where the serverSigned11 includes but is not limited to DSSigned11, DPSigned11, and OPSSigned11; generating second authentication verification to-be-signed data (for example, serverSigned12), where the serverSigned12 includes but is not limited to DSSigned12, DPSigned12, and OPSSigned12; generating a signature value (for example, serverSignature11) of the first authentication verification to-be-signed data, where the serverSignature11 includes but is not limited to DSSignature11, DPSignature11, and OPSSignature11; and generate a signature value (for example, serverSignature12) of the second authentication verification to-be-signed data, where the serverSignature12 includes but is not limited to DSSignature12, DPSignature12, and OPSSignature 12.

[0383] Specifically, the remote server signs the first authentication verification to-be-signed data (for example, serverSigned11) by using a private key of the target verification certificate, and generates the signature value (for example, serverSignature11) of the first authentication verification to-be-signed data through calculation. When the first verification public key identifier list, the second verification public key identifier list, and the local certificate issuer public key identifier list include the same CI public key identifier, the target verification certificate is CERT.DSauth.ECDSA. When the first verification public key identifier list and the second verification public key identifier list do not include the same CI public key identifier, the target verification certificate is CERT.DSauth1.ECDSA.

[0384] Specifically, the remote server signs the second authentication verification to-be-signed data (for example, serverSigned12) by using the private key of the target verification certificate, and generates the signature value (for example, serverSignature12) of the second authentication verification to-be-signed data through calculation. When the first verification public key identifier list, the second verification public key identifier list, and the local certificate issuer public key identifier list include the same CI public key identifier, the target verification certificate is CERT.DSauth.ECDSA. When the first verification public key identifier list and the second verification public key identifier list do not include the same CI public key identifier, the target verification certificate is CERT.DSauth2.ECDSA.

[0385] S706. The remote server sends first authentication information to the LPA, where the first authentication information includes the target verification information, and the LPA receives the first authentication information.

[0386] Optionally, the first authentication information may further include a session identity, the first authentication verification to-be-signed data (for example, serverSignature11), the signature value (for example, serverSignature11) of the first authentication verification to-be-signed data, the second authentication verification to-be-signed data (for example, serverSigned12), and the signature value (for example, serverSignature12) of the second authentication verification to-be-signed data.

[0390] Optionally, the LPA may add the third authentication sub-information to a third command (for example, AuthentiateServer) and send the third command to the eUICC 1.

[0391] S708. The eUICC 1 verifies the third authentication sub-information.

[0392] Specifically, the eUICC 1 may verify the target verification certificate, verify the signature value (for example, serverSignature11) of the first authentication verification to-be-signed data by using the first authentication verification to-be-signed data (for example, serverSigned11), and verify the first authentication verification to-be-signed data (for example, serverSigned11).

[0393] S709. The eUICC 1 sends first authentication sub-information to the LPA, and the LPA receives the first authentication sub-information.

[0394] Optionally, before the eUICC 1 sends the first authentication sub-information to the LPA, the method further includes: The eUICC 1 generates first eUICC to-be-signed data (for example, euicc1Signed1), and the eUICC 1 generates a signature value (for example, euicc1 Signature) of the first eUICC to-be-signed data.

[0395] Optionally, the first authentication sub-information may include the first eUICC to-be-signed data (for example, euicc1Signed1), the signature value (for example, euicc1Signature) of the first eUICC to-be-signed data, a first eUICC certificate (for example, CERT.EUICC1.ECDSA), a first eUICC manufacturer certificate (for example, CERTEUM1.ECDSA), and the like.

[0396] S710. The LPA obtains fourth authentication sub-information corresponding to the eUICC 2 from the first authentication information, and sends the fourth authentication sub-information to the eUICC 2, and the eUICC 2 receives the fourth authentication sub-information.

[0408] Optionally, after the second authentication information is verified by the remote server, the remote server and the terminal device may perform another subsequent operation, so that the remote server can continue to provide various services for the terminal device. For example, an SM-DP+ may provide a profile download service and a profile remote management service for the terminal device, an SM-DS may provide an event query service for the terminal device, and an OPS may provide an eUICC firmware version update service for the terminal device.

[0409] For example, in an eUICC firmware version update process:

[0412] In the method described in FIG. 8A and FIG. 8B, the LPA may implement bidirectional authentication between the remote server and the two eUICCs of the terminal device concurrently by establishing an HTTPS once, so that after the bidirectional authentication is completed, operations on the eUICCs can be separately completed, thereby improving operation efficiency.
