Session Description

MIFARE® is NXP’s well-known brand for a wide range of contactless IC products used in more than 40 different applications worldwide. With 150 million readers and 10 billion contactless and dual interface IC ́s sold, MIFARE products are proven and more reliable than any other interface technology on the market. This huge installed base of MIFARE products enables service providers to expand their offer while reducing the total costs and increasing user convenience.

The MIFARE® technical courses are a set of four independent training modules that address technical knowledge of the complete MIFARE® portfolio. They are a good mixture of theoretical basics and practical exercises helping you to understand how to unleash the full potential of smart cards, smart phones and wearables with MIFARE® technology.

On its online version, every module consists of two sessions. The first session is dedicated to reviewing the main concepts of the product and the second one focused on a workshop. The workshop is a 2 or 3-hour session where the trainer completes some practical exercises based on the main functionalities of every product using NXP’s RFID Discover PC application with a Pegoda reader. By the end of the workshop and after a Q&A section, a set of exercises are proposed to the attendees as homework along with a link to a video with the assessment resolution. It is recommended for the workshop attendees to have a Pegoda reader (or any other NFC reader compatible with the software used) to take the most out of the practical session.

Module 1: MIFARE Ultralight AES

  • MO1 – In this module we present the most relevant technical concepts for MIFARE Ultralight AES, the latest generation MIFARE Ultralight product, available since 2022. MIFARE Ultralight AES delivers a new level of trust for limited-use tickets and key cards by supporting AES cryptographic authentication and secure data access.
  • WO1 – This module consolidates the theoretical concepts introduced in MO1. During this module we will review how MIFARE Ultralight AES can be configured to activate AES protection for user memory and authentication as well as how to use the AES keys to authenticate the MIFARE Ultralight AES using RFID Discover.

Module 2: MIFARE Plus EV2

  • MO2 – This session presents the technical details of MIFARE® Plus EV2, the latest generation of the MIFARE Plus family, designed to be a security upgrade for legacy infrastructures and to ease the migration from MIFARE Classic installations to higher security levels with minimum effort.
  • WO2 – This session consolidates the technical concepts delivered in MO2. It shows how to upgrade MIFARE Plus EV2 to the different higher security levels, both at the sector and card level, and illustrates how to authenticate and perform common memory operations.

Module 3: MIFARE DESFire EV3

  • MO3 – This session describes the technical features of MIFARE DESFire EV3, the third evolution of the proven MIFARE DESFire family, ideally suited for scalable and secure multi-application smart card solutions in identity, access, loyalty, transport schemes, and smart city solutions.
  • WO3 – This session consolidates the technical concepts delivered in MO3. It shows how to authenticate at the card level, create applications, create files and how to personalize and configure of the key features offered by MIFARE DESFire EV3 card.

Module 4: MIFARE SAM AV3

  • MO4 – This session explains the capabilities of the MIFARE SAM secure microcontroller, specifically designed for use with contactless MIFARE ICs, including MIFARE DESFire, MIFARE Plus and MIFARE Ultralight. Now in its third generation, it is the ideal add-on for reader devices to secure keys, protect assets and establish secure communication in a wide variety of applications.
  • WO4 – This session consolidates the technical concepts delivered in MO4. It shows how to inject keys into MIFARE SAM AV3, and how to use it to personalize and validate transactions with MIFARE DESFire or MIFARE Plus cards.
