Gemalto integrates DESFire into NFC phone


Gemalto is enabling commuters to use their mobile phones as e- tickets in MIFARE DESFire infrastructures. Gemalto is the first to achieve the implementation of a transport application compliant with the DESFire specifications in a SIM or UICC card.

This will enable commuters to use their NFC mobile phone as an e-ticket, as simply as any other contactless travel card. A high level of security is ensured, as the tickets are stored in the SIM card and the application meets the stringent security requirements of the DESFire specifications.
