Osmocom SIMtrace is a software and hardware system for passively tracing SIM-ME communication between the SIM card and the mobile phone.

It looks a bit like this:

When connected to a phone, it looks like this:

It works by utilizing the T=0 capable USART of the USB-attached AT91SAM7 microcontroller.
28 1 laforge

The USART passively receives the bytes as they are exchanged on the ISO 7816-3 / TS 11.11 interface between SIM and phone. The received bytes are sent via USB to the PC, where a program called simtrace on the PC gathers data from the USB device, parses the APDUs and forwards them via GSMTAP to the wireshark protocol analyzer.

SIMtrace can be used to monitor the ME-SIM communication, but also emulate a phone or SIM, or be MitM.
42 38 tsaitgaist
While the hardware supports all these modes, only the monitoring aspect has been implemented in software.

h2. Hardware
53 41 tsaitgaist
54 41 tsaitgaist
55 41 tsaitgaist
The first implementations used an Olimex SAM7-P64 development board with some of the I/O lines hooked up to the mechanical SIM card adapters from [[RebelSIM_Scanner]]. If the [[RebelSIM]] scanner is used, connect the USB even if just the lines are used. It needs to be powered, else the real reader will often fail to initialize the card.

Now we have a dedicated PCB design.  The schematics and Gerber files are released as open source hardware and can be produced by everyone.

However, those of you who are not interested in building it from scratch can buy a complete factory-produced, tested and flashed PCB assembly from http://shop.sysmocom.de/products/simtrace

h3. Using it
124 41 tsaitgaist
125 41 tsaitgaist
126 41 tsaitgaist
Simply start *simtrace*.
127 1 laforge
It will send the GSMTAP frames to UDP/IPv4 localhost:4729.
128 1 laforge
129 1 laforge
It will also print hexdumps of the frames to the console, looking like this:

h2. Wireshark integration
154 34 tsaitgaist
155 41 tsaitgaist
156 41 tsaitgaist
There is an experimental patch, also part of the simtrace.git package.  It is also included in the [[wireshark]] developer version (since wireshark 1.7.1).
157 41 tsaitgaist
158 34 tsaitgaist
To see the APDUs in wireshark:
159 41 tsaitgaist
* on localhost SIMtrace automatically opens a UDP sink locally, no need to do any anything
160 41 tsaitgaist
* to get the data on another machine
161 41 tsaitgaist
** start an UDP sink for GSMTAP on the other machine (do not use netcat as it "connects" back)
162 41 tsaitgaist
<pre>
163 37 tsaitgaist
socat -u udp-recv:4729 /dev/null
164 41 tsaitgaist
</code></pre>
165 41 tsaitgaist
** tell SIMtrace on which machine to forward
166 41 tsaitgaist
<pre>
167 1 laforge
./simtrace -i 192.168.0.1
