Hi,

How does this compare with the suite of tools that Harald
Welte/Osmocom/Syscom and others have been working on for the last ~5+ years?

These are the projects that come to mind:

 Osmocom SIMtrace is a software and hardware system for passively
 tracing SIM-ME communication between the SIM card and
 the mobile phone.:

 Osmocom Card Operating System (COS):
 http://cgit.osmocom.org/cgit/osmo-cos/

 A command line tool for (U)SIM authentication
 http://cgit.osmocom.org/cgit/osmo-sim-auth/

 A python tool to program magic SIMs:
 http://cgit.osmocom.org/cgit/pysim/

 Henryk Ploetz' smardcard shell:
 http://cgit.osmocom.org/cgit/cyberflex-shell/

Also, I believe that Shady.tel has been using these tools (and a vendor
in China) to produce full SIM cards with fully programmable k{i}.

Can you explain where your new project fits in the current ecosystem?

All the best,
Jacob
