HID Global Expands Portfolio With NXP MIFARE DESFire EV3 Credential

HID’s credential based on MIFARE DESFire EV3 offers AES128 encryption, a random unique identifier (UID) for protecting user privacy and more.

AUSTIN, Texas — HID Global announces “the most feature-rich implementation” of the latest MIFARE DESFire EV3 credential. The credential is based on NXP MIFARE DESFire EV3 and is said to deliver the technology’s full range of advanced security and privacy capabilities and reinforces them with HID’s model for identity data protection.

“This latest addition to our portfolio underscores HID’s commitment to continually expand our credential offering with solutions that are easy to customize, deploy and maintain,” says Harm Radstaak, senior vice president and head of physical access control solutions with HID Global. “It helps organizations further streamline security through a simple framework that supports multiple form factors and communication protocols.”

HID’s credential based on MIFARE DESFire EV3 implements the technology’s full range of capabilities including AES128 encryption, a secure channel for protecting card data from man-in-the-middle attacks, and a random unique identifier (UID) for protecting user privacy.

The credential works with readers based on MIFARE DESFire EV1 and EV2 products and is interoperable with HID Signo, iCLASS SE and multiCLASS SE readers. In addition to choosing standard or custom security profiles to meet their specific needs, users can take advantage of HID’s Secure Identity Object (SIO) model that protects a credential’s identity data through key diversification, authentication signatures and encryption.

Users can create multitechnology cards with HID’s credential based on NXP MIFARE DESFire EV3 to provide a smooth migration path from vulnerable legacy, low-frequency 125 kHz-based systems to modern and secure credential technology.

“The MIFARE DESFire EV3, with its enhanced feature set and multi-application support, reflects NXP’s continued commitment to secure, connected and convenient contactless smart city services,” says Philippe Dubois, vice president and general manager, Secure Edge Identification, NXP. “We are happy to provide faster and secure contactless access solutions together with HID.”
