After having used multimedia services from his desktop computer, the mobile user wishes today to access these services whatever the terminal or network used.

In this paper, we propose an autonomic service provisioning solution to mobile users and suggest the use of a smart card as an autonomy enabler.

Service portability, adaptation and session mobility management is handled entirely by the smart card.
