Determine Facility Code and Card Number from ATR in C#


Tag: c#,.net,bytearray,smartcard,winscard

I have the following card reader HID Omnikey 5325. I have a contact-less card named HIS Proximity.

The number written on this card is 133593 42101044091-3.

By reading the card, I get the following ATR hex: 3B050002F10673

Using the folowing applications I have managed to see the following information.

I need to extract the Facility Code and the Code Number in order to identify the card.

I have managed to find the following code, but I am missing a few pieces:

/// <summary>
    /// Extract a data item from the Wiegand raw data. The data item usually is something like a card 
    /// number or facility code.

I can't figure out the FromByteArray function. I have found a description here on page 69: http://www.intraproc.com/downloads/Fargo/HDP5000%20OLD/Omnikey%20CardMan%205121/Manuals/ok_contactless_developer_guide_an_en.pdf

EDIT: SOLUTION I have created the FromByteArray function that goes with the code thanks to @Chris Haas

    /// call example: FromByteArray(atrByteArray, byteOffset: 0, int bitOffset: 1, int numberOfBits: 16)
    /// call example: FromByteArray(atrByteArray, byteOffset: 0, int bitOffset: 17, int numberOfBits: 8)
    public static long FromByteArray(byte[] atrByteArray, int byteOffset, int bitOffset, int numberOfBits)
        var hexString = ByteArrayToString(atrByteArray);

        var start_number = Int64.Parse( hexString, NumberStyles.HexNumber );

        Int64 a_26_only = start_number & 0x3FFFFFF; //26 bits, 11 1111 1111 1111 1111 1111 1111             

        Int64 result = (a_26_only >> bitOffset) & (long)(Math.Pow(2,numberOfBits)-1);       

        return result;

    public static string ByteArrayToString(byte[] ba)
      StringBuilder hex = new StringBuilder(ba.Length * 2);
      foreach (byte b in ba)
        hex.AppendFormat("{0:x2}", b);
      return hex.ToString();

And usage:

        byte[] atrByteArray = new byte[] {59, 5, 0, 2 , 241, 6, 115};
        var cardNumber = FromByteArray(atrByteArray, 0, 1, 16);
        var facilityCode = FromByteArray(atrByteArray, 0, 17, 8);

        Console.WriteLine(string.Format("Card number is: {0} and facility code is: {1}", cardNumber, facilityCode));


I'm not sure what the full-length number 3B050002F10673 is but, per the spec, you're only interested in the right-most 26 bits of it.

Int64 start = 0x3B050002F10673;

Int64 a_26_only = start & 0x3FFFFFF; //26 bits, 11 1111 1111 1111 1111 1111 1111

Then, per the spec, the right-most bit is a parity bit, so after checking it you can discard it:

Int64 a_without_parity = a_26_only >> 1;

Finally, the card number is the right-most 16 bits:

Int64 card_number = a_without_parity & 0xffff;

And the facility code is the next 8 bits:

Int64 facility_code = (a_without_parity >> 16 ) & 0xff;
