ST provides industrial and automotive qualified eSIMs. These are microcontrollers with appropriate security. The ST4SIM-110x and ST4SIM-200x eSIMs are built upon ST's ST33G secure microcontroller, which features the tamper-proofed SecurCore SC300 processor and extra security features including hardware cryptographic accelerators.
Arkessa and Truphone provide services to connect eSIMs to cellular networks and manage the subscription. The services cover hundreds of cellular networks including 2G, 3G, 4G, LTE CAT-M (low-power wide-area connectivity), and NB-IoT (narrowband IoT) networks around the world.
All devices are designed to comply with Common Criteria CC EAL5+ security assurance, ETSI and GSMA 3GPP specifications for connection to 2G, 3G, and LTE cellular networks including NB-IoT. The eSIMs come with an advanced operating system that meets Java Card and GlobalPlatform specifications. Java Card applets for vertical services are also available.
