DESFire Light Symmetric Originality Check

Hello,

I'm working on implementing the necessary LRP algorithms to perform Symmetric Originality Checks on DESFire Light. I'm following the information available in AN12343 and AN12304. I understand the use of an AES key as an input to the precomputation functions is needed. This makes sense when authenticating with any of the internal Application Keys.

However, I don't understand how this works with the Originality Keys. These key are unique to every DESFire Light card, correct?

How do I obtain the Originality Keys?

Are they the same as the Application Keys, as in you can change them?

@Kan_Li Hi, thank you for your response. I currently have a valid NDA on my docstore account. I am unsure where and what to look for in the docstore to find this information. Do I submit a support e-mail?

Hi @wilmer_suarez ,

 

Please kindly refer to the following for details.

 

These key are unique to every DESFire Light card, correct?

- Yes, they are.

 

How do I obtain the Originality Keys?

- This kind of information should be requested from the NXP docstore with a valid NDA, so please contact your local Disty or NXP sales representatives to sign the NDA at first. You may refer to https://www.nxp.com/support/sample-and-buy/distributor-network:DISTRIBUTORS for more details.

 

Are they the same as the Application Keys, as in yoYpou can change them?

- No, they are not. According to the spec,  

• The keys are written on the IC at the production in the NXP factory.
• Keys are created in NXP factory HSM and never leave the secure environment.
• The keys can`t be changed after the IC leaves the NXP factory.

 

Hope that helps,

 

Have a great day,
Kan
