We have been integrating OMNIKEY desktop readers and embedded chip sets since 1999. 

We have worked on many projects that require NXP Mifare product expertise. This includes anything from Mifare Classic to Mifare DESFire EV1 or EV2. 

CardWerk is deeply familiar with these card products and underlying card specifications on card edge level.

As MULTOS issuer, we can offer anything from MULTOS application development to card enablement and application loading – all signed and approved by MULTOS PKI backend.

With its extensive PKI, MULTOS is ideal for deployments that require a rock-solid, certificate based application life cycle.
