MIFARE Ultralight

Embedded with smaller memory capacity than the Classic and DESFire, MIFARE Ultralight cards are an ideal option for low‐cost, high volume applications such as public transport, loyalty cards and event ticketing.

In terms of industry utility, they are most suitable for disposable ticketing. Sporting events, entry to exhibitions, public transport tickets and etc. They were also being widely used by Vingcard for their hotel key cards which come with their customised encryption.


The MIFARE Plus has been developed as sort of replacement for MIFARE Classic which security has somewhat been compromised. It offers a higher level of security that incorporates AES and DES/Triple-DES encryption standards, as well as an older proprietary encryption algorithm. This is best suited for application that requires more stringent security, such as stored value payment solutions, access control.
