I use a smart card reader and I want to know if the reader is secure. How to sniff communication between card and card reader?

  • Are you using a reader/writer where the card is put in?

  • I think you want to capture and analyse the packets sent to host from a peripheral using a protocol analyser device. you will have to plug a interception hardware between both devices and configure the company-dependant software to use the hardware. It's no more than that.

  • Ah I'm almost there, there is a software tool that can do this github.com/crocs-muni/APDUPlay This tool takes "control" over the reader' driver communication with the card that is inbuilt in the reader itself (driver). It makes logging of PC/SC communication possible.
