Java library used to read and extract public data from NFC EMV credit cards.
Maven Central

Android sample app available on Play store.

Get it on Google Play

Getting started

First you need to create a custom Provider to exchange APDU with an NFC EMV credit card.

public class YourProvider implements IProvider {

  public byte[] transceive(final byte[] pCommand) {
     // implement this

After that, create an instance of a parser and read the card.

IProvider prov = new YourProvider();
// Create parser (true for contactless false otherwise)
EMVParser parser = new EMVParser(prov, true);
// Read card
EMVCard card = parser.readEmvCard();

card object contains all data read (Aid, card number, expiration date, card type, transactions history)
