ISO 7816 [part 1] [part 2] [part 3] [part4] [section..1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 annex.. A B C D E F]

Section 1. Scope

This part of ISO/IEC 7816 smart card standard specifies:

  • the contents of messages, commands, and responses transmitted by the interface device to the card and conversely,
  • the structure and content of the historical bytes sent by the card during the answer to reset,
  • the structure of files and data, as seen at the interface when processing interindustry commands for interchange,
  • access methods to files and data in the card,
  • methods for secure messaging,
  • access methods to the algorithms processed by the card. It does not describe these algorithms.

It does not cover the internal implentation within the card and/or the outside world.
It allows further standardization of additional interindustry commands and security architectures. For the latest version of this part, please contact ISO in Switzerland.
