Package information

mCarve is a tool for carving attributed dump sets, written in Python. The dump sets can, for instance, be obtained by dumping the memory of a number of smart cards or by regularly dumping the memory of a single smart card during its lifetime. The tool helps in determining at which location in the dumps certain attributes are stored. More information can be obtained from our paper.
