MIFARE is a technology which so fare could only be supplied by NXP. In NFC it was pushed by NXP as a so called open standard which is obvious not the case. Now NXP is just given to selected "partners" a license to make it appear an open standard. NXP refuses to discuss about a MIFARE license with our company which is Number two in RFID. So for me this is again only a protective action of NXP to further protect their propriatary "standards". MIFARE crypt algortitm has been cracked and therefore should not be used in future NFC applications. AES crypt algorithms, without propriatary commands, should be used.
