The demand for multi-application smart card platform has been increasing in various business sectors recently. When it comes to the actual implementation of the platform, however, network-based dynamic downloading in a Card Issuer-Service Provider separated environment has not made much progress. This paper introduces the smart card information sharing platform that uses licensing/policy/profile management and PKI-based technologies to enable multiple CIs and multiple SPs to reflect their own business policy flexibly via network. It makes the paradigm shift from card-oriented scheme to service-oriented scheme. By through world's first implementation of the scheme and some experiments including deployment, we confirmed that this technology is well-accepted and applicable to various business sectors and it can be of practical use.
