NXP’s tap-and-go MIFARE® product, which began more than 25 years
ago as a single IC for transport ticketing in South Korea, is now a leading
choice worldwide in more than 40 application classes, ranging from smart
mobility and micropayments to loyalty, identification, and, increasingly,
At just about any given moment on any given day, there’s someone, somewhere,
using a MIFARE product based solution for access management – on a smartcard,
a smartphone, a wristband, or some other wearable – by securely unlocking a
door, logging onto a computer, or using an online service.
A Secure, Flexible Solution
MIFARE® DESFire®, with its high-level security and support for multi-application
functionality, is recommended for all types of access management, especially
in enterprise and educational contexts, where large numbers of people need to
access a wide variety of buildings and services.
MIFARE DESFire offers high security and provides protection mechanisms to
prevent cloning or sharing of credentials, uses cryptography to secure
authentication, encrypt communication, and prevent sniffing, relay attacks,
and other forms of manipulation.
Also, because MIFARE DESFire supports multi-application and multi-site
solutions, employees, faculty members, and students can do more than open
doors, using their MIFARE DESFire credentials to confirm their identity, make
purchase, or ride public transport. What’s more, since MIFARE DESFire is fully
compatible with NFC, as defined by the ISO 14443-A specification, MIFARE
DESFire credentials translate seamlessly from physical smartcards to
NFC-enabled mobile devices like smartphones and wearables.

Secure mobile access enabled by MIFARE 2GO
NXP’s First MIFARE 2GO Partner for Corporate Access: WaveLynx
WaveLynx Technologies Corporation
supplies an open and secure access-control platform, complete with readers and
credentials, to nearly 50 access-control providers globally, and is the first
to offer MIFARE 2GO mobile credentials in the commercial access-control
Working out of Colorado, in the United States, WaveLynx offers decades-worth
of experience in RFID-based access, in enterprise and educational
environments. They already use MIFARE DESFire to deploy credentials and
readers at five of the top ten financial institutions in the world, and at
many of the world’s leading technology companies.
Now, through the WaveLynx and MIFARE 2GO combination, employees can use Google
and Samsung Wallets to securely access all of their facilities in a
frictionless manner. Administrators get the cybersecurity and administrative
tools they need to manage the lifecycle of the credential, while employees get
the benefits of convenience, privacy, and security.
WaveLynx is a longtime customer of our MIFARE products. As Robert Lydic,
WaveLynx president, explains it, “Back in 2014, we made the foundational
decision to base all our reader and credential technology on the MIFARE
DESFire ecosystem. It offers superior cryptography and security for a market
that demands the highest levels of protection, and it lets us grant
interoperability within an open development platform. Standardizing on MIFARE
DESFire also lets us establish our own platform for industry adoption.
The WaveLynx/MIFARE 2GO combination will create safer, more convenient
corporate environments, with mobile employee IDs and badges that can be used
with a variety of services, including access to offices, secure areas, parking
garages, and elevators, as well as cost-related activities such as printer
access or making purchases at onsite cafeterias. All access and commerce
transactions can be combined in one solution, with one ID serving for
everything employees need to do.
