Features

JIRA ticket no

Description

SDK-225

Making DESFire derivation algorithms configurable

In previous Card SDK releases, the supported derivation algorithms have been implemented in a very static and specific context in the software. With Card SDK 5.9 we are introducing the possibility to configure the supported key derivation algorithms in a more flexible and generic way in the Encoding Description files (DSC).

SDK-410

Improved JPKIEncoder download

When using the JPKIEncoder of Smart ID Identity Manager in Card SDK, old files did not get cleaned up automatically, when Identity Manager got updated. This has been improved now - Card SDK automatically removes obsolete files before downloading the new ones.

SDK-446

Update DESFire cards with activated Random ID

With this release of Card SDK it is possible to update/re-encode Mifare DESFire EV1/EV2 cards with derived keys that have "Random" ID" activated. Previously Random ID with derived keys could only be used during initial encoding on empty cards.

SDK-475

Supporting TLS 1.3

The web service framework in Card SDK has been updated in order to support TLS 1.3 in the IDProductionService.

SDK-487

Introducing Elatec TWN4 RFID encoder

With this release, Card SDK supports the Elatec TWN4 multi-technology RFID encoder. Via the TWN4 Card SDK can now encode the following technologies:

  • Mifare DESFire EV1/EV2,

  • Mifare Classic

  • reading EM serial number for EM4102 and EM4450

  • HID Prox 26bit and 35bit UID reading

See Card SDK requirements and interoperability, section "Encoders".

SDK-501

Support added for Magicard 600

With Card SDK 5.9, support for the Magicard 600 direct-to-card printer is added. Frontside/ backside printing but also RFID and crypto chip encoding via the two different encoding positions in the printer is supported.

See Card SDK requirements and interoperability, sections "Card printers without integrated encoding" and "Card printers with integrated encoding".

Corrected bugs

JIRA ticket no

Description

SDK-369

Writing with a preceding reading of fixed data with leading zeros in BCD format to a Legic chip didn't succeed. This has been fixed now.

SDK-477

Changed a log level from INFO to ERROR when a problem occurs while moving a card to the next encoding position.
