Before we go further, I would like to make one thing clear SIM Card Cloning is illegal. This tutorial should be used for educational purposes only. After this, you can be able to Clone SIM Card easily but don’t harm others.
Mobile Phone is everybody’s need, people mostly do their confidential talks over cell phones, But only some of them know how easy it is to eavesdrop them, there are some tricks and hacks to do that, but the most powerful way is to clone their SIM Card.
The Subscriber Identity Module aka SIM Card is the transmitter of the signal to the mobile and tower. Our SIM cards contain two secret codes or keys called IMSI (International Mobile Subscriber Identity) and Ki (Authentication Key ), which enables the operator to know the mobile number and authenticate the customer, these codes are related to our mobile numbers which the operators store in their vast database, it is based on these secret keys that enable the billing to be made to that customer.
The main mission in cloning a SIM Card is to get KI and IMSI codes, these codes are the identifier of the SIM Card, and help you register your mobile to the network.
How To Clone SIM Card in 20 Minutes
By extracting these two secret codes from the SIM and program it into a new blank smart card. Since the operator authentication on SIM is based on these values, it enables us to fool the operators in thinking that it’s the original SIM, this authentication is a flaw with the GSM technology.
Now which SIM cards can be cloned?
Not every SIM Card is cloneable, only some SIM card are clonable, let us learn, which one.
SIM cards are manufactured based on three algorithms COMP128v1, COMP128v2 and COMP128v3. It is important to note currently only COMP128v1 version SIM cards can be cloned, since this is the only algorithm, which has been cracked, bear in mind that 70% of all the SIM cards we use are COMP128v1, at the time of writing this post.
