  1. Great Work, I know what you mean about doing it just for the sake of knowing how it works. I don't even live in a building that uses those smart cards anymore. The only problem I would have with what you are suggesting is that by putting the washer in diagnostic mode nobody else would know how to use the machine, and they would likely call to get it fixed. (At least where I have been the washers are shared by the whole building). Also, are those machines the coinamatic/smartcity ones? Don't give up! (or get caught with the machine inside out I guess lol)
  2. Wow that post has so much incorrect information... First of all Smart Cards are NOT different than SIM cards. You can read* a SIM Card using a serial port, a clock source, and a MAX232 chip. When I say read I mean Communicate with them. I have used the same "iso programmer" to read satellite cards, laundry cards and yes SIM cards. There are many different types of smart cards. I don't know how you can say whats on the chip is encrypted before you even know what kind of smart card he is using. Some smartcards are plain old memory cards, and unless the reader/writer is storing encrypted data (which in my experience is not usually the case) than you can read it just fine. They are not impossible to clone. Some do use encryption, and will not reveal their keys. The ones which do not use encryption/authentication are actually quite easy to clone. Once you know what data/commands the card must respond to the rest is easy peasy. In order to even attempt to help the OP do anything with his card, he needs to figure out a few things. Does it use T=0 or T=1 protocol? (synchronous or asychronous) Once you know the protocol, what is the Cards ATR (answer to reset)? Search online to see if what card uses that ATR (if posted online). I can't tell you if that card reader will work, as I have never used it. It appears to support the two protocols of T=0 and T=1, and also memory only cards, as well as processor cards... so it may work fine. Anyways, find out what kind of card you have... there is really no incentive for anyone else to hack a taxi card that we can't even play with lol (not that we would be as immoral as to use a hacked taxi card...)
  3. I have to agree with the skip part... although I do love putting old computers to a good use. An old P3 is going to use way more power than a simple device like a router station (ubnt.com) or other similar type devices that escape me at the moment. Then again you already have all the required hardware to use with that P3, so power shmower.
  4. Okay I know this thread is old... but this may help for future readers.. check out CrypTool (www.cryptool.de) it has some interesting things for attacks, and learning about cryptography. Also to note, 3DES is not 3 DES encryptions, it works like so: 1 - Encrypt using First Key 2 - Decrypt using Second Key 3 - Encrypt using third Key So its actually Encrypted, Decrypted and Encrypted... but yes the decrypting with a different key is essentially encrypting it....
  5. I had that problem too. Some versions are just bad. This program was used a lot in satellite card hacking as well. I am using version 5.0. "WinExplorer v5.0 by Dexter". The version I have was detected by Norton Antivirus as a virus, but I never had that problem in the past when I used it with virus scanners from the time (this program is older). Microsoft Security Essentials does not detect it as a virus.... but I am not sure how reliable it is..
  6. Try using the software winexplorer. I am able to get an ATR on my cards with an iso programmer which was used for the old dishnet/directv cards (NOT an unlooper/glitcher). The atr is listed in the atmel documents as well as the proper communication settings. I am fairly sure there is only 1 stop bit. Also check the byte order, like wether lsb is first or msb is first... makes a difference.. Sorry but I'm feeling pretty sick, so I'll come back in a day or so and post my exact settings. Also there seems to be something fishy with that c8 pin your talking about... I never noticed that, I was using a season 2 interface to log the communications and if I remember correctly it did not have that pin connected..
  7. also to note, there are only 5 signals used: GND, VCC, IO, RST and CLK... it follows the ISO standard.. They communicate at 9600 baud...
  8. Here is some info for laundry cards (smartcity ones): Two versions, one with a RED arrow and one with a BLUE arrow. The ones with a red arrow are easy to hack, simply get a season 2 interface (lets you log the communications between washer and smartcard). Then go buy a blank smartcard (goldcard or something) and program it to replay the same info. In order to add money to the original card you would need to crack the challenge response keys it sends. The newer cards (BLUE arrow) use an atmel crypto memory, AT88SC0404 to be exact. There are no hacks that I know about which can bypass the security of this device. Both can be communicated with using a standard smartcard reader at ~3.6mhz (sat card programmers usually work for this).
