paper that discusses the evolving technology of MIFARE and its potential for replacing the existing RFID technology. Though RFID technology has several advantages there are several technical disadvantages of RFID. As RFID makes use of radio waves they are susceptible to interference and moreover memory is less and is devoid of security. Other problems that can arise include RFID reader collision and RFID tag collision. All of these problems can be solved by using MIFARE technology. MIFARE technology has a greater memory with an option of providing security. In contrast to RFID technology which has 1Mb of memory MIFARE uses 4Mb of memory and several security algorithms can be implemented.
