Project CheckCard – live demo at EAST FCS Seminar

Project CheckCard

Join us for the Terminal Fraud Seminar that will be held by the EAST Expert Group on All Terminal Fraud (EGAF) on 9th October 2019.


Project CheckCardTobias Heckmann from the University of Applied Sciences in Bingen, Germany will give an overview of Project CheckCard.

The CheckCard software has been developed as an investigation tool to validate whether or not a smart card is genuine. The check is done off-line, either using software on a desktop or on an android phone.

The presentation will start with a short overview of the project goals and the software that has been developed, and will conclude with a live demonstration of EMV payment card validation and the analysis of smart cards.

This interactive event follows the basic structure of EAST EGAF Member meetings. Attendance at EAST EGAF meetings is limited, as it is a working group, and this event enables a wider participation and the opportunity for all attendees to engage with the Group and its organizers.
