Practical RFID Attacks

writing, sniffing & emulating 13.56MHz RFID tags with OpenPCD and OpenPICC hardware

This presentation will explain how to access information stored on 13.56MHz RFID cards by using the open hardware RFID reader/writer design OpenPCD. It will enable users of the OpenPICC 13.56Mhz RFID emulator to add software support for RFID emulation profiles and show how to practically sniff RFID transactions with OpenPICC.

OpenPCD is a free hardware design for Proximity Coupling Devices (PCD) based on 13,56MHz communication. This device is able to screen informations from Proximity Integrated Circuit Cards (PICC) conforming to vendor-independent standards such as ISO 14443, ISO 15693 as well as proprietary protocols such as Mifare Classic. Contactless cards like these are for example used in the new electronic passports. The intention of the OpenPCD project is to offer the users full hardware control of the RFID signal and to provide different output signals for screening the communication. With already existing Free Software from the OpenMRTD project for implementing the PCD side protocol stack of various RFID protocols, this project will happily extend the free toolchain around RFID verification.

The OpenPICC project for Proximity Integrated Circuit Cards (PICC) is the counterpart to OpenPCD. It is a device that emulates 13.56MHz based RFID transponders / smartcards. OpenPICC can be used to e.g. simulate ISO 14443 or ISO 15693 transponders, such as those being used in biometric passports and FIFA worldcup tickets.

Like OpenPCD, the hardware design and software are available under Free Licenses.
