Updates in June 2017: For more details on updates to EMVLab, including HTTPS and better handling of 3-byte and unknown tags see my blog post.
EMV tag search Look up EMV tags in this handy database. Search by keyword e.g. for all tags that contain the word "currency" or "cryptogram" in the description, or look up a hex tag e.g "9F20".
TLV decoder Decode EMV TLV (Tag, Length Value) byte strings into their constituent tags and sub-tags. Useful for analysing APDU traces, responses and so on.
CAP calculator Generate CAP codes using an emulated banking card and CAP calculator, to test against real gadgets or for testing authentication servers.
Cryptogram calculator Generate and verify EMV ARQC, ARPC and TC cryptograms, calculated using the vital parameters of the card, UDKs, ATC etc.

ASN1 decoder Decode a binary file into an ASN1 dump using an online interface to Peter Gutmann's dumpasn1 tool
PIN translation tools Encrypt, decrypt and translate ISO PINblocks between different encryption keys. PINs, PANs, padding... all sorts of fun!
Keyshare generation tools Automatically generate test keys of various lengths, and split into components. KCVs are automatically provided for each component and the whole key.
Truecolour hex dump tool This hex dump tool will create a multicoloured, annotated hex dump of the provided file, making it easy to spot strings, markers, and high and low entropy areas of the file. Very useful for when you don't have your favourite hex dump tool to hand.
