RFID and NFC are becoming more pervasive than ever, so the 'ChameleonMini' NFC Card Emulator is designed to help developers gain access to a versatile solution for testing vulnerabilities.

Capable of emulating cards to replay attack scenarios or test for vulnerabilities, the 'ChameleonMini' NFC Card Emulator is currently funding on Kickstarter.

Explaining the enhanced functionality of the 'ChameleonMini' NFC Card Emulator, the makers details that, "The freely programmable platform can create perfect clones of various existing commercial smartcards, including cryptographic functions and the Unique Identifier (UID). It can be employed to assess security aspects in RFID and NFC environments in different attack scenarios, such as replay or relay attacks, state restoration attacks, sniffing of NFC communication, or functional tests of RFID equipment."
