Co-operation between mobile network operators, device vendors and the test industry has resulted in test standards for NFC use cases in order to find common ground for the different stakeholders. The results of this work, driven by the GSMA, are specified in the GSMA TS.27 NFC Handset Test Book.
This test specification considers all components of secured and non-secured NFC use cases such as mobile payment, ticketing, and access control, which are necessary for the setup, download, launch, and maintenance of mobile applications:
- Contactless NFC communication
- SWP/HCI communication between the NFC controller (CLF) and the Secure Element (SE)
- Application programming interface and access control between the mobile device and the Secure Element (SE)
- Complete OTA communication chain between the Trusted Service Manager (TSM) and the Secure Element
