    I know once you block sector it's impossible to unblock it without password or change B key,
    but is it also true for Classic card on SmartMX ?
    If I am a card issuer can I just reformat Classic card to rewrite some or all sectors to factory default ?

    Hi Nika,

    The MIFARE Classic has no “format command” as it exists for instance for the MIFARE DESFire. You need to know the information of the sector trailer to get access to a sector. This is also true if you try to access to a MIFARE Classic on a Virtual Card.

    If you are the card issuer you know the default keys of each sector and you can protect all sectors for unauthorized access by changing the keys.
