ETSI Secures Critical Infrastructures against Cyber Quantum Attacks with new TETRA Algorithms

Sophia Antipolis, 8 November 2022

With the world facing growing challenges including the war in Europe and a global energy crisis, it is essential that the mission- and business-critical communications networks used by the public safety, critical infrastructure and utilities sectors (including transportation, electricity, natural gas and water plants) are secured against third-party attacks, to protect communications and sensitive data. With more than 120 countries using dedicated TETRA (Terrestrial Trunked Radio) networks for these critical services, work has been undertaken to ensure the ETSI TETRA technology standard remains robust in the face of evolving threats.


New ETSI specification allows single UICC to support the use of multiple applications simultaneously

Sophia Antipolis, 26 October 2022

New specifications released by ETSI will enable multiple subscriptions and identities to exist in the same smartphone handset without needing several SIM cards to be within the device.

The mobile telecom industry has been facing an increasing demand for applications running on mobile devices like banking, payments, transport and identity for some time. These new specifications address this demand by adding the possibility to host and address several "virtual secure elements" into the same UICC. This allows multiple virtual secure elements to coexist logically separated, whilst having the ability to be addressed independently through the same physical interface.

ETSI celebrates World Standards Day with ETSI Standards for a Better World

Sophia Antipolis, 14 October 2022

Today ETSI is joining the international standardization community in celebrating World Standards Day. This year’s edition focuses on a “shared vision for a better world”, where the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are key enablers. Standards help to reach these goals.

At ETSI, we have decided to showcase six of our recently released ICT standards which help citizens to live in a better world, giving concrete examples of how people and the planet benefit from standards, and how they are aligned with the SDGs.
