pySim - Read, Write and Browse Programmable SIM/USIM Cards
====================================================
This repository contains Python programs that can be used
to read, program (write) and browse 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.
Homepage and Manual
-------------------
Please visit the [official homepage](https://osmocom.org/projects/pysim/wiki) for usage instructions, manual and examples. The user manual can also be built locally from this source code by ``cd docs && make html latexpdf`` for HTML and PDF format, respectively.
Git Repository
--------------
You can clone from the official Osmocom git repository using
```
git clone https://gitea.osmocom.org/sim-card/pysim.git
```
There is a web interface at <https://gitea.osmocom.org/sim-card/pysim>.
Installation
------------
Please install the following dependencies:
- pyscard
- pyserial
- pytlv
- cmd2 >= 1.3.0 but < 2.0.0
- jsonpath-ng
- construct >= 2.9.51
- bidict
- gsm0338
- pyyaml >= 5.1
- termcolor
- colorlog
Example for Debian:
```sh
sudo apt-get install --no-install-recommends \
pcscd libpcsclite-dev \
python3 \
python3-setuptools \
python3-pyscard \
python3-pip
pip3 install --user -r requirements.txt
```
After installing all dependencies, the pySim applications ``pySim-read.py``, ``pySim-prog.py`` and ``pySim-shell.py`` may be started directly from the cloned repository.
### Archlinux Package
Archlinux users may install the package ``python-pysim-git``
[![](https://img.shields.io/aur/version/python-pysim-git)](https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/python-pysim-git)
from the [Arch User Repository (AUR)](https://aur.archlinux.org).
The most convenient way is the use of an [AUR Helper](https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/AUR_helpers),
e.g. [yay](https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/yay) or [pacaur](https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/pacaur).
The following example shows the installation with ``yay``.
```sh
# Install
yay -Sy python-pysim-git
# Uninstall
sudo pacman -Rs python-pysim-git
```
Mailing List
------------
There is no separate mailing list for this project. However,
discussions related to pysim-prog are happening on the
<openbsc@lists.osmocom.org> mailing list, please see
<https://lists.osmocom.org/mailman/listinfo/openbsc> for subscription
options and the list archive.
Please observe the [Osmocom Mailing List
Rules](https://osmocom.org/projects/cellular-infrastructure/wiki/Mailing_List_Rules)
when posting.
Contributing
------------
Our coding standards are described at
<https://osmocom.org/projects/cellular-infrastructure/wiki/Coding_standards>
We are using a gerrit-based patch review process explained at
<https://osmocom.org/projects/cellular-infrastructure/wiki/Gerrit>
Documentation
-------------
The pySim user manual can be built from this very source code by means
of sphinx (with sphinxcontrib-napoleon and sphinx-argparse). See the
Makefile in the 'docs' directory.
A pre-rendered HTML user manual of the current pySim 'git master' is
available from <https://downloads.osmocom.org/docs/latest/pysim/> and
a downloadable PDF version is published at
<https://downloads.osmocom.org/docs/latest/osmopysim-usermanual.pdf>.
A slightly dated video presentation about pySim-shell can be found at
<https://media.ccc.de/v/osmodevcall-20210409-laforge-pysim-shell>.
pySim-shell vs. legacy tools
----------------------------
While you will find a lot of online resources still describing the use of
pySim-prog.py and pySim-read.py, those tools are considered legacy by
now and have by far been superseded by the much more capable
pySim-shell. We strongly encourage users to adopt pySim-shell, unless
they have very specific requirements like batch programming of large
quantities of cards, which is about the only remaining use case for the
legacy tools.
