What is it?

The MIFARE4Mobile® Industry Group consists of leading players in the Near Field Communication (NFC) ecosystem including Gemalto, Giesecke & Devrient, NXP Semiconductors, Oberthur Technologies and STMicroelectronics. The group acts as a platform to guide the evolution of MIFARE4Mobile technology.

MIFARE® has become the most widely adopted contactless technology on the market today and is an essential element in public transportation schemes, ticketing systems, loyalty programs, and access management around the world.

Initially developed by NXP Semiconductors, MIFARE4Mobile® is a technology used to manage MIFARE-based services in NFC mobile devices, from over-the-air installation to end-user interaction via the user interface of the mobile phone.

How does it work?

MIFARE4Mobile is a technology that provides mobile network operators, trusted services managers and service providers with a single, interoperable programming interface to remotely provision and manage MIFARE-based services in embedded secure elements and SIM cards of mobile NFC devices “over the air” (OTA).

The MIFARE4Mobile Interface specifications are grouped in 3 categories:

  • Wallet/User Interface APIs
  • Over The Air/Trusted Service manager APIs
  • Secure Element Platform APIs

The latest version of the MIFARE4Mobile specification, version 2.1.1, has been released by the MIFARE4Mobile Industry Group and is a minor update which aligns the specification to support certification services as announced with the launch of the M4M Test Centre.

And End-to-End Simplified Framework is also available in the Specifications section.
