pySim-prog - Utility for programmable SIM/USIM-Cards
This repository contains a Python-language program that can be used to program (write) certain fields/parameters on so-called programmable SIM/USIM cards.
Such SIM/USIM cards are special cards, which - unlike those issued by regular commercial operators - come with the kind of keys that allow you to write the files/fields that normally only an operator can program.
This is useful particularly if you are running your own cellular network, and want to issue your own SIM/USIM cards for that network.
The official homepage of the project is http://osmocom.org/projects/pysim/wiki
You can clone from the official libosmocore.git repository using
git clone git://git.osmocom.org/pysim.git
There is a cgit interface at http://git.osmocom.org/pysim/
- pytlv (for specific card types)
Example for Debian:
apt-get install python-pyscard python-serial python-pip pip install pytlv

- Program customizable SIMs. Two modes are possible:
- one where you specify every parameter manually :
./pySim-prog.py -n 26C3 -c 49 -x 262 -y 42 -i -s
- one where they are generated from some minimal set :
./pySim-prog.py -n 26C3 -c 49 -x 262 -y 42 -z <random_string_of_choice> -j <card_num>
With <random_string_of_choice> and <card_num>, the soft will generate 'predictable' IMSI and ICCID, so make sure you choose them so as not to conflict with anyone. (for eg. your name as <random_string_of_choice> and 0 1 2 ... for <card num>).
You also need to enter some parameters to select the device : -t TYPE : type of card (supersim, magicsim, fakemagicsim or try 'auto') -d DEV : Serial port device (default /dev/ttyUSB0) -b BAUD : Baudrate (default 9600)
- Interact with SIMs from a python interactive shell (ipython for eg :)
from pySim.transport.serial import SerialSimLink from pySim.commands import SimCardCommands
sl = SerialSimLink(device='/dev/ttyUSB0', baudrate=9600) sc = SimCardCommands(sl)
# Print IMSI
print sc.read_binary(['3f00', '7f20', '6f07'])
# Run A3/A8
