NXP Embeds Powerful Security Features in the 'DNA' of HF, NFC, and RAIN RFID ICs!
New IC for Secure Smart City Applications
With the MIFARE IC product line, contactless ticketing in public transport started over 25 years ago. This was a milestone for the development of smart cities. NXP is now introducing the MIFARE DESFire EV3 chip, a new milestone for fast and secure transactions – such as the payment of parking fees or access to offices and campuses – in smart cities.
The IC hardware and software is certified according to Common Criteria EAL 5+.
The chip supports numerous open crypto-algorithms. A card-generated MAC supports secure authentication of transactions. Man-in-the-middle attacks are made more difficult by a new Transaction Timer function. The Secure Unique NFC (SUN) messaging function, integrated for the first time in a MIFARE chip, ensures data confidentiality and integrity.
Protection Against Manipulation, Resistance to Hacker Attacks, Untraceable IDs, and More
Item-level identification, authentication, tamper protection, data privacy – in an interview with RFID & Wireless IoT Global , RFID experts Sylvia Kaiser-Kershaw, Johannes Grüll, Mahdi Mekic, and Ralf Kodritsch of NXP Semiconductors provide comprehensive insights into state-of-the-art security features of RFID ICs.
They show numerous use cases and explain why the digital transformation can bring lasting benefits for corporations, public administrations and individuals. Connectivity needs robust security to empower trusted IoT applications at scale
