Identification cards -- Integrated circuit card programming interfaces -- Part 4: Application programming interface (API) administration
ISO/IEC 24727 defines a set of programming interfaces for interactions between integrated circuit cards and external applications to include generic services for multi-sector use.
ISO/IEC 24727-4:2008 standardizes the connectivity and security mechanisms between the client-application and the card-application.
It specifies API-Administration of service-independent and implementation-independent ISO/IEC 24727 compliant modules, including security, that enables action requests to a specific card-application of an integrated circuit card such that, when coupled to data model and content discovery operations, the card-application can be used by a variety of client-applications.
