Dear all,
I should acquire the content of a SIM card. Which SIM card reader do you suggest?
Do you know if exists SIM card reader with write blocker functionality?
I would like to analyze the content of the SIM card using open source software.
Do you have any experience and recommendation?

Thank you in advance
Best Regards
Andrea Liguoro

  1. Cellebrite sim card extraction is the best commercial tool for this
  2. For Open Source software, acquire the image of the SIM Card using FTK Imager and Analyze that in AUTOPSY

  3. Download Autopsy: https://www.autopsy.com/download/

Thank you very much for your answer. 

Do you have any suggestion for the hardware card reader to use for the acquisition ? 

I would like to connect it to the USB port of my laptop. 

 

Thank you in advance

Best Regards

Hello.

I went to Fleabay and actually bought 3 different ones for that purpose.

To say any of the 3 worked all the time would be unfair.
However, the overall investment was somewhere near $60US and each had their own CD driver plus micro/nano adapters.

Dear All, 

  I bought a Mediacom USB 2.0 Smart Card Reader + Card Reader. I payed about 25 Euros.

I also downloaded SIM Explorer (open source) from

  https://sourceforge.net/projects/sim-explorer/

and used it to analyze the SIM Card and produce an XML Report.

 

I think it worked fine.

Best Regards

Andrea Liguoro
