the Desfire Technology was launched by NXP in 2002 and evolved in 2008 for EV1 generation and then for EV2 generation in 2018. As the growing demand for better performance and higher security was raised, the EV3 latest generation was launched in mid 2020.

The MIFARE DESFire EV3 is Common Criteria EAL5+ security certified which is the same security certification level as demanded for smart card IC products used e.g. for banking cards or electronic passports. It fully complies with the requirements for fast and highly secure data transmission and flexible application management. This makes it the ideal product for service providers and service operators who want to offer an easy, convenient and secure access to a wide variety of different services.

MIFARE DESFire EV3 is based on global open standards for both air interface and cryptographic methods. It is compliant to all levels of ISO/IEC 14443A and supports optional ISO/IEC 7816-4 commands (APDU and file structure supported) and is fully interoperable with existing NFC reader for MIFARE infrastructure.

Featuring an on-chip backup management system and the mutual three-pass authentication, a MIFARE DESFire EV3 card can hold as many applications as the memory can accommodate. Each application can hold up to 32 files with various data configurations. The size of each file is defined at the moment of its creation, making MIFARE DESFire EV3 a truly flexible and convenient product. An automatic anti-tear mechanism is available for all file types, guaranteeing transaction-oriented data integrity.
