This tool provides several features to interact with (and only with) Mifare Classic RFID-Tags.
It is designed for users who have at least basic familiarity with the Mifare Classic technology.
Please read the whole page and make sure you got everything right before rating. Thank you!
If you rate with less then 4 stars, please leave a comment why. This way I can improve this app.
• Read Mifare Classic tags
• Save and edit the tag data you read
• Write to Mifare Classic tags (block-wise)
• Clone Mifare Classic tags
(Write dump of a tag to another tag; write 'dump-wise')
• Key management based on dictionary-attack
(Write the keys you know in a file (dictionary).
MCT will try to authenticate with these
keys against all sectors and read as much as possible.)
• Format a tag back to the factory/delivery state
• Write the manufacturer block of special Mifare Classic tags
• Create, edit and save key files (dictionaries)
• Decode & Encode Mifare Classic Value Blocks
• Decode & Encode Mifare Classic Access Conditions
• Display generic tag information
• Display the tag data as highlighted hex
• Display the tag data as 7-Bit US-ASCII
• Display the Mifare Classic Access Conditions as a table
• Display Mifare Classic Value Blocks as integer
• In-App (offline) help and information
• It's open source (GPLv3) ;)
Some important things are:
• The features this tool provides are very basic. There are no such
fancy things like saving a URL to an RFID-Tag with a nice looking
graphical user interface. If you want so save things on a tag,
you have to input the raw hexadecimal data.
• This App can NOT crack/hack
any Mifare Classic keys. If you want to read/write an RFID-Tag, you
need keys for this specific tag first. For additional information
please read/see Getting Started from the links section.
• There will be no "brute-force" attack
capability in this application. It is way too slow due
to the protocol.
• This app will NOT work on the following devices because
their hardware (NFC-controller) does not support Mifare Classic
( https://github.com/ikarus23/MifareClassicTool/issues/1 ).

You can use this app to associate multiple functions (e.g. Wlan OFF, Bluetooth ON, Mobile Data TOGGLE, start navigation,run Tasker task, start any installed app, use media buttons, call a phone number, add a timestamp, calendar entry, add Text-to-Speech and much more!) to a NFC (near field communication) tag via an app internal database. You can even add tag cycles and let your tag run different activities per scan. So ReTag is the perfect NFC automation tool for you ;-).
(Works with ANY android supported tag = re-writable AND write protected!)
With NFC ReTag you don´t have to write anything on the tag (-> uses the tag ID, great for small tagsizes and write-protected tags!) and NO data is send to the internet. Additional write options (for better dispatching, device independent tags etc.) are also available. Import of activity tags and beaming is also supportet.
*!* NFC enabled device required / NO root required *!*

If you have any issues, please do not hesitate to write us an e-mail.
You could combine any activities/ actions and add as many activities and cycles as you want per tag. (obviously except for writing activity tags -> depends on tagsize). For best performance and dispatching, write a special NFC ReTag tag (this is NOT an activity tag!).

An ad supported free version (with limited number of tags) and an unlimited ad-free (PRO) version is available. Please check if this app works on your phone via the FREE version before downloading the PRO version.
Supports any standard android NFC tags (NFC Forum Type 1, Type 2, Type 3, Type 4, MIFARE Classic, Ultralight(C), DESFire etc.).
Issues with TASKER: Install Tasker BEFORE NFC ReTAG, enable Misc / Allow External Access in Tasker UI, enable Tasker (on/off button), try the Tasker fallback option within NFC ReTag settings!
Some security related NFC Tags (e.g. in passports) change their ID on every read attempt. This app will not work with such tags.
Keep in mind that you need a formatted rewritable NFC tag or card for this application to work.
The most spread NFC tags out there are Mifare tags and you can order them easily online: http://www.sparkfun.com/products/10131

eCL0WN is an Android ePassport utility for NFC-enabled phones that allows you to read and clone your ePassport's chip content. The following functionality is implemented in the current release:
- Read passport data using a given authentication key (if needed).
- View passport details including the JPEG picture.
- Write passport data to an emulator chip.
- Write passport data to internal storage (not very secure).
eCL0WN requires an NFC-enabled phone running Android 2.3+. Don't forget to enable the NFC interface.
eCL0WN reads ePassport files EF.COM, EF.SOD, EF.DG1 and EF.DG2. If present and accessible, the optional files EF.DG7, EF.DG11, EF.DG12, EF.DG13 and EF.DG15 will also be read. Retrieved data can be written to an ePassport emulator. Use Dexlab's epassport_emulator-v1.02 (or higher) as the target device. You need a JCOP card and a PC to prepare the emulator. Please refer to http://dexlab.nl/downloads.html#emulator for more details. Before writing files to the emulator all Active Authentication (AA) related, Extended Access Control (EAC) related and unknown files (if any) are removed from index EF.COM. This allows one to bypass AA and EAC checks of inspection systems vulnerable to downgrade-attacks.
Note that eCL0WN does not comply with ICAO Doc 9303 at all. Please do not use it to check authenticity or integrity of machine readable travel documents.
ePassport chips typically comply with the ISO/IEC 14443 A or B standard. The A standard is widely used in at least Western Europe and the US. The B standard is widely used in at least Asia. Antenna quality of some NFC-enabled Android devices is very poor. If this is the case for your phone you won't be able to communicate with ISO/IEC 14443 type B ePassport chips. This is NOT an eCL0WN bug, this is a hardware problem. Problems are reported for the Google Nexus S (type B not readable) and the HTC One X (unknown problem).

To use it, enter the passport number, date of expiry and your date of birth. Close the passport and place it on a non-metal surface. Place the phone on top. The phone should beep and show a progress wheel. Don't move it. After about 10s it will display the data from the chip.
If you have difficulty, it's best to allow 15 minutes before trying your passport again.
The app was written by the UK's Identity and Passport Service. Most UK passports issued since 2006 have a chip in them which stores the holder's photo and all the details which are also on the photo page of the passport. The app will only display the data from the passport chip - it won't do anything else with it. It is just a passport reader, not a passport checker, so it will not verify that a passport or the passport chip is genuine. The app does not transmit or store any data.
This app is a proof of concept and was built to allow us to explore this technology. We know that there are many things it could do which it does not do, and there are some things it does do which could be done better. The methods it uses to read the chip are public domain.
We are interested in your feedback on this app; Please use it and leave a review.
1. How much did this cost? The app was developed by a member of IPS’s staff outside working hours. It uses no proprietary or copyrighted code. The testing and security evaluation costs were minimal. The protocols the app uses to communicate with the chip are freely available (ISO 14443 and ICAO Basic Access Control) and the app uses no information which is particular to Government to read the passport chip.
2. Why do I have to type in details as opposed to have the camera read them? This would have required more investment in development which would not have been appropriate for the app’s status as a ‘proof of concept’.
3. Why do I have to type in details at all? The passport chip uses Basic Access Control (BAC) to control its communications with devices attempting to read it. Essentially this means that the chip will not allow any information to be read from it until certain items of data from the passport have been passed to it (the passport number, the date of birth and the date of expiry). This makes it impossible for a criminal to remotely read a passport in your pocket, and ensures that the person reading the passport has opened the passport book to read these details before activating the app.
4. Does this mean someone can steal my identity? The app does not increase the risk of a person’s identity being stolen. No more information is read than is already available on the data page of the passport. The app does not store data or transmit data. No data remains in the phone’s memory after the app is shut down.
5. Why is Government developing this? There are potential uses for a portable, cheap passport reader and this is a mechanism to explore and test the technology. A future development might, for example, validate that the passport is genuine as well. Releasing this app will give us experience in this area and make us better informed when developing and making decisions about future, potentially more sophisticated, apps.
6. What's next? What will the next version of the App do? It has not been decided whether there will be any future development of this app. However a future version could confirm that a passport is genuine or has not been reported lost/stolen. A future version could also be made to read BRPs (Biometric Residence Permits) or the passports of other countries. Developments like these may be useful to those wishing to make employment checks.
