Mifare Desfire Designed To Ensure More Safety And Security Compared Predecessors
Although it is a technical product, it plays a major role in making our lives more convenient. Mifare is actually NXP-Semiconductors-owned trademark of a series of chips largely used in contactless smart cards and proximity cards. Due to its great safety and security features, they are widely used by both small-scale and large-scale companies. The Mifare name covers proprietary technologies based upon various levels of the ISO/IEC 14443 Type A 13.56 MHz contactless smart card standard.
In today’s times when technology is taking big leaps, there is no point in stepping back just because of outdated technology. This technological updating has made our world much smaller than earlier and brought people closer like never before. When it comes to transportation and conveyance, Mifare cards play a vital role in making it function in a proper way. The microprocessor embedded in these cards stores and processes information as needed. In addition, they are flexi-smart and HID (Human Interface Device) facilitated. These types of cards are contactless and combines smart card equipment with the benefits of HID’s recognized propinquity smart card technology. These cards can be widely used for access control, cashless vending, civic transference, event ticketing, consumer loyalty and even photo ID cards.
The Mifare Desfire is a supplementary NXP microprocessor system, embedded on a similar core as the Mifare ProX/SmartMX, with additional hardware and software security features as compared to regular Mifare Classic chips.The best part of this system is that its securely separated sectors allow multiple applications and provide provision for further growth. A set of different keys defends read, as well as write, operations to build key pecking-order in the system.
These propinquity smarts cards are the best option for the organizations and various other companies that are willing to upgrade Mifare smart card submissions to an existing HID propinquity technology access control system. Following the highest quality standards, these next generation HID Proximity and Mifare smart card authorizations have the memory system and ability to store various applications on single smart card documentation.
Mifare Desfire EV1 benefits from a Unique 7 byte UID and on-chip backup management system. It is also ISO/IEC 14443 A 1-4 compliant. Its typical applications include: transport, access control, leisure, e-government and loyalty. The maximum possible read/write distance between the card and reader is 10 centimeters (3.9 in), but actual distance depends on the field power generated by the reader and its antenna size. It was introduced in the year 2002.
