SamyKam is a new project to pentest mag-stripe information, including its hardware and software. I have been working with Electronic Cats to design a portable hardware where the user can interact with it directly on the ssh, OLED, phone or browser. The code is an integration of MagSpoof and Raspberry Pi. The main idea behind this tool is to provide a toolset for mag-stripe scenarios.
Moreover, the name SamyKam is in honor of Samy Kamkar for his hard work and his support to the community.
The initial project was MagSpoofPI. In that design, the main limitation was the necessary to re-program the MagSpoof over ssh all the time. Even when it is easy to do it, sometimes the network could be an issue. So in this new project, we integrated Bluetooth support(a mini-shell) for a direct interaction through a cell phone or another device with Bluetooth support. Adding http support to execute a micro web-server(flask) to run, compile or alter MagSpoof tracks in any web browser. The mini OLED display and rotary encoder were designed for prepared tests and for fast access to the main services implementing a navigation menu.

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
