Cardpeek is a tool to read the contents of ISO7816 smartcards. It features a GUI to represent card data in a tree view, and it is extendable with a scripting language (LUA). The goal of this project is to allow smartcard owners to be better informed about what type of personal information is stored in these devices. The tool currently reads the contents of: EMV bank cards, Calypso public transport cards (such as Navigo, RavKav, and Mobib), Belgian eID cards, GSM SIM cards, the French Vitale 2 health card, some Mifare cards, and Moneo electronic purse cards.
SIMtrace sniffs communication between a mobile phone and a SIM/USIM card. This can be useful for research and analysis, and for developing mobile phone and SIM toolkit (STK) software. The SIMtrace hardware is also capable of MITM (man in the middle) attacks on the SIM-MS communication.
