How to Use Dekart SIM Explorer v.1.4 l to Analyze SIM Cards
Dekart SIM Explorer v.1.4 l is a powerful software tool that allows you to view and edit the contents of SIM cards, as well as perform forensic analysis on them. Whether you are a mobile operator, a content provider, a detective, a developer, or a reverse engineer, you can benefit from the flexibility and functionality of Dekart SIM Explorer v.1.4 l.
In this article, we will show you how to use Dekart SIM Explorer v.1.4 l to perform some common tasks, such as viewing SIM card information, scanning for unknown files, comparing SIM cards, and generating reports.
Viewing SIM Card Information
To view the information about a SIM card, you need to connect it to your computer via a PC/SC-compliant smart card reader. Then, launch Dekart SIM Explorer v.1.4 l and select the reader from the drop-down list. The program will automatically read the card and display its properties, such as:
Card type (GSM SIM, 3G USIM, or CDMA R-UIM)
Card serial number
Card status (PIN and PUK codes)
Card ATR (Answer To Reset)
You can also view the information about the smart card reader, such as its name, driver version, and supported protocols.
Scanning for Unknown Files
Dekart SIM Explorer v.1.4 l can scan the SIM card to reveal unknown files that are not defined by the standards or are hidden by the card manufacturer. This can help you discover additional data or applications stored on the card.
To scan the SIM card, go to Tools -> Scan Card and choose one of the scanning modes:
Smart scan: This mode is fast and able to find any standard GSM, USIM or R-UIM file.
Full scan: This mode will find all the files on the card, even if they are not defined by the standards.
Manual search: This mode allows you to look for files that have a name that matches a mask, or files that have a specific property (size, record count, etc).
The scanning results will be displayed in a tree view, where you can see the file names, IDs, sizes, and attributes. You can also view and edit the raw data of each file in hexadecimal or ASCII format.
Comparing SIM Cards
Dekart SIM Explorer v.1.4 l can compare two SIM cards side by side and highlight the differences between them. This can help you identify changes or anomalies in the card contents.
To compare two SIM cards, you need to have two smart card readers connected to your computer. Then, go to Tools -> Compare Cards and select the readers from the drop-down lists. The program will automatically read both cards and display their properties and files in two separate windows.
You can then use the toolbar buttons to switch between different comparison modes:
Show all files: This mode shows all the files on both cards.
Show only different files: This mode shows only the files that differ between the cards.
Show only identical files: This mode shows only the files that are identical on both cards.
Show only unique files: This mode shows only the files that exist on one card but not on the other.
The differences between the files will be marked with different colors:
Red: The file exists on both cards but has different data.
Green: The file exists on one card but not on the other.
Blue: The file exists on both cards but has different attributes.
Dekart SIM Explorer v.1.4 l can generate printable reports about a SIM card, its contents and its properties. This can help you document your findings or present them as evidence.
To generate a report, go to File -> Print Report ec8f644aee
