Developers and programmers that need to carry out NFC security analysis may be interested in a new versatile NFC card emulator that has been created called the ChameleonMini.
The ChameleonMini NFC analysis board has been specifically designed to emulate a variety of ISO 14443, NFC, and ISO 15693 cards, together with other types of RFID transponders operating at 13.56 MHz.
Watch the promotional video below to learn more about the new ChameleonMini NFC emulator which has been created by Kasper & Oswald. Its developers explain a little more about its design and functionality.
The credit-card shaped ChameleonMini is a versatile tool for practical NFC and RFID security analysis, compliance and penetration tests, and various end-user applications. The freely programmable platform can create perfect clones of various existing commercial smartcards, including cryptographic functions and the Unique Identifier (UID). It can be employed to assess security aspects in RFID and NFC environments in different attack scenarios, such as replay or relay attacks, state restoration attacks, sniffing of NFC communication, or functional tests of RFID equipment.
New firmware for the ChameleonMini can be comfortably uploaded via a USB bootloader. A convenient, human-readable command set allows to configure its behavior and update the settings and content of up to eight internally stored, virtualized contactless cards. During battery-powered stand-alone operation, the integrated buttons and LEDs enable user interaction and feedback.
Cards that the ChameleonMini can emulate in principle include: NXP Mifare Classic, Plus, Ultralight, Ultralight C, ntag, ICODE, DESfire / DESfire EV1, TI Tag-it, HID iCLASS, LEGIC Prime and Advant, Infineon my-d, and many other NFC tags.
