NXP's Mifare Plus selected for Turkey's road tolling system
With Mifare Plus, released 2009, NXP serves the market for contactless smart card systems. The vendor claims the device offers superior security and privacy. Designed to offer an upgrade path from its predecessor Mifare Classic, Mifare Plus enables system integrators to add in additional security features and functionality into existing Mifare applications. According to NXP, the platform has seen significant growth in various security sensitive applications, such as public transport ticketing schemes, road tolling, loyalty cards, closed loop micro payment and access management in the public and private sector.
Launched in 2003, Turkey's contactless highway toll collection system covers 1800 kilometres of motorways and bridges, and carries in excess of 150 million vehicles annually. As longstanding users of Mifare technology, in January 2010, the highway toll operator embarked on a project to migrate the contactless smart card scheme to a Mifare Plus-based system. The systems integrator driving the project, Aselsan, will conduct a phased approach and gradually turn on the various security features enabled by the reader infrastructure upgrade plan. The respective card and prelam production as well as programming services are being provided by SMARTRAC and Plastkart.
“Mifare Plus is an important addition to the Mifare technology portfolio. Since the launch of the product, we have seen a fast adoption from the existing Mifare customer base, such as KGS, looking to upgrade existing applications,” said Henri Ardevol, general manager secure transactions, NXP Semiconductors. “
Mifare Plus technology features 128-bit Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) and supports migration from existing Mifare Classic implementations. The contactless microcontroller IC offers an upgrade path for system integrators and operators wishing to implement additional layers of security to their automatic fare collection, access management and micro-payment installations. In addition, the product has received Common Criteria EAL 4+ certification by the German Federal Office for Information Security, and has undergone thorough security and privacy assessment by the Universities of Bochum and Leuven.
