RFID

Started by Unknown January 30, 2014
Hi,
I want to write my PC application able to work with RFID devices and i'm looking for an SDK able to:
1. Write RFID card registers 
2. Compatible with MIFARE CLASSIC/ULTRALIGHT, FELICA, DESFIRE
3. Compatible with windows8 and linux
4. Good support with API and documentation

5. Compatible with open stacks (for example with openNFC)

Point 5 is not strictly necessary but preferable.
Any suggestion?
Thanks

I've just got my US passport renewed and it also has some kind of RFID chip embedded in its cover page. I wonder if there is any kind of device out there that's available for anybody that could read that smart chip. I'm just curious what is encoded in there and have nothing nefarious on my mind. I though some NFC phone app could do that, but I am not sure.

Your linux disty should have libnfc. I have a built in reader on my notebook and never got the tools to work. But I didn't spend a lot of time on it. OpenNFC has a SDK, so I don't understand your question.

Have you any suggestion?


You probably need to go onto a different usenet group or find a suitable 
forum. This is really nitty gritty stuff. I'm not even sure how much talk 
their will be in the open since people make money off such technology. 

Blackberry has this bluetooth badge holder than feeds your smartcard to 
their phone. So you wear your stinkin' badge around your neck and it 
communicates to all the paired devices that need the secondary 
authentication. Your phone is also one step in physical access to facilities 
via NFC. 

The problem I see with any of these devices is you need to check them 
regularly, kind of like a license server, and from different places in the 
executable code. A common way to get past dongles in the dark ages was to 
step through the code and watch where it jumps when the port is read, then 
change the code in assembler. That was how dedongled programs were 
distributed.

There is a public version of what is known loosely as Air Force linux. 
Technically known as lightweight portable security. It works with usb 
smartcard readers. They may be documents available regarding the coding.

http://spi.dod.mil/LPS-Public_for_DoD.htm

In government speak, you are trying to write the CAC middleware. The public 
version does have the CAC provision, so the code might be acquired via a 
FOIA request.

Cell phones do not have the right radio for the task. ?-)

Don't know what else is needed but my cell phone has NFC capability.

Interesting, but not all RFID runs on that frequency. ?-)
Thanks for your reply.
As wrote, i need an nfc reader/writer different from mobile phones/tablets/similar devices.
I know that some mobile phones are able to manage rfid cards, but i need only a reader/writer device.
