Part of the Lecture Notes in Electrical Engineering book series (LNEE,volume 90)


In this article (based on “Kyrillidis L, Mayes K, Markantonakis K (2010) Web server on a SIM card. Lecture notes in engineering and computer science: Proceedings of the World Congress on Engineering 2010, WCE 2010, 30 June–2 July 2010, London, UK, pp 253–259”) we discuss about the integration of a web server on a SIM card and we attempt an analysis from various perspectives (management, operation, security). A brief representation of the Smart Card Web Server (SCWS) will take place along with a use case that will help the reader to identify the way that an SCWS can be used in practice, before we reach to a final conclusion.
