NFC Data Exchange Format (NDEF)

NFC data exchange format (NDEF) specifies a common data format for NFC-compliant devices and tags. It is used to describe how a set of actions are to be encoded onto a NFC tag (e.g. open a URL, create an SMS, create an email, etc.). The benefit of using NDEF is that you do not need to have custom software running on the touching device.

Common NFC NDEF Record Types

  • vCard: Stores contact information (e.g. electronic business cards).
  • URL: Stores Universal Resource Identifiers (URIs), which include web addresses and other network resources and files.
  • Text: Stores text strings in multiple languages.
  • Smart poster: Stores text strings, URLs, SMS or phone numbers.
  • Connection handover: Stores pairing with Bluetooth, Wi-Fi or other protocols.
  • Device information: Stores basic details about the device mode and its identity.
  • Signature: Provides an algorithm or certificate type for use as a digital signature.
