Knowledge Base - Card Admin: Deep scan and content reports

This article applies to the following products

When you generate a Content Report without changing Access Rights on the card, you will not be able to read the content of all files. If you have the Admin codes of the card AND if the ARR file is possible to update, then you can change the access rights and read all content of the card, including Authentication keys (if these are present in EF's which is not always the case...).

Verify PIN and Admin codes

On Gemalto test cards, Card Admin often knows what Admin code the card has. On other cards you'll need to know the APDU sequence to verify the Admin code and use the "Exchange APDU" tool in Card Admin.

Check every "Read/Delete Child" record in every tab and change to ALWAYS
