NFC-SEC-01: NFC-SEC cryptography standard using ECDH and AES

3rd edition, June 2015

This Standard specifies the message contents and the cryptographic methods for PID 01.

This Standard specifies cryptographic mechanisms that use the Elliptic Curves Diffie-Hellman (ECDH) protocol for key agreement and the AES algorithm for data encryption and integrity.

The mechanisms are for use with the Services and Protocol specified in ECMA-385.

This Standard was originally developed by TC47. The work of TC47 has been transferred to TC51-TG1.
