MIFARE® is the trademark of a series of chips widely used in contactless smart cards and proximity cards.

MIFARE® products comply with the international standard ISO/IEC 14443, which is used in more than 80% of all contactless smart cards today. Within the MIFARE product families, backward compatibility ensures that the existing infrastructure can be smoothly upgraded to higher security and feature levels. To further extend the reach of MIFARE® products, the MIFARE4Mobile® Industry Group brings MIFARE® applications onto NFC-enabled mobile devices.

Included in the MIFARE® product family are MIFARE Ultralight®, MIFARE Classic®, MIFARE® Plus, MIFARE DESFire® and SmartMX®.

Who needs MIFARE® certification?

Secure element vendors and smart card vendors that wish to implement MIFARE® in their products, need to go through MIFARE certification. As complexity is growing, interoperability becomes more and more important. A streamlined process for a clear certification path will ensure everyone plays by the same rules to ensure this interoperability.

What can UL do for me?

Certification of your licensed MIFARE® product implementation through the UL MIFARE® Test Center will guarantee interoperability in an increasingly global multi-vendor environment. It will certainly help to avoid the potential occurrence of interoperability issues in the field at MIFARE® installations in public transport, access management, event ticketing, loyalty, and micropayment. More importantly, certification of your products will improve the quality of your products while maintaining a fast time to market. And finally, your customers will be reassured by that your certified product behaves at it should and is interoperable.

Get your products certified by UL’s MIFARE® Test Center to ensure that your products are secure and interoperable before releasing to the market. 

UL’s MIFARE® Test Center will offer functional certification services of the current and future MIFARE family members, including MIFARE® Classic, MIFARE DESFire® EV1 and MIFARE Plus®.
