As some of you may know I have over the last several years been
extending the range of my skillsets, beyond previous skills of mobile
devices/PCs/laptop/MACs, to include EMV and the known CVV (Card
Verification Value) code that is stored in the card’s magnetic stripe
and iCVV (Integrated Chip Card Card Verification Value) code that is
stored in the card’s chip. This work into includes the range of payments
systems that are already or will be introduced to smart phone payment
The transactional data contained in the 'exchange messages' are of
paramount importance to post-fraud investigations; in the absence of an
actual physical instrument involved in the originating activity
associated with a transaction. Having the ability to examine copies of
the original transactional data contained in electronic files requires a
tool designed to output the field data into the known field
structures/parameters as set out by iso8583. ParseIT is one of those
free tools that provides a useful starting point to output the data to
assist an investigation.
- ParseIT is a parser tool to analyze transactional messages from raw data and logs.
- ParseIT provides a simple and effective way to fast detect, parse and compare messages.
- The intuitive interface provides quick access to the fields of the
message, their value, their description and their validation.
Because its free and doesn't require a commercial, then it is worth including in the investigators' soft toolkit.
