HID Mifare DESFire EV1 Card

PACSprobe now supports HID Mifare DESFire EV1 8K SE physical access control credentials. It extracts PACS bit data and decodes raw Wiegand data to extract facility code and card number.

Note that this requires a card reader with on-board SAM (SIO processor). The following readers are supported:

  • OMNIKEY 5127CK/G2, OMNIKEY 5127CK mini
  • OMNIKEY 5023

The following screenshot shows the successful extraction of the card number = 4. We were using an OMNIKEY 5427 G2 SP2.4 reader in CCID mode for this test.

Note that the response time is pretty good. It takes only about 500ms for the card & reader system to respond. Other cards are much slower to respond while providing a lower assurance level
