pySim-prog and pySim-read currently echo back the pcsc reader id (or baudrate/socket, depending on the interface used). This makes the output unecessarly undeterministic, which becomes a problem when verifying the putput in tests. Lets not echo those variable, user supplied parameters back. Also lets move the code that does the initalization to utils, so that it can be used from pySim-prog and from pySim-read (code dup).

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
