The application was developed to read certain chips and cards which have become widespread.

The application interface is pretty simple with access to an "Analyzer" with several options. The most interesting being the e-Password reader.

At the moment, you can use cardpeek to read the contents of passports, health cards from some European countries, GSM sim cards and identity cards which contain chips.

cardpeek can be a useful tool to read the contents and extract information from certain types of documents.
