 NFC Record Type Definition (RTD) Technical Specification

Specifies the format and rules for building standard record types used by NFC Forum application definitions and third parties that are based on the NDEF data format. The RTD specification provides a way to efficiently define record formats for new applications and gives users the opportunity to create their own applications based on NFC Forum specifications.

NFC Text RTD Technical Specification

Provides an efficient way to store text strings in multiple languages by using the RTD mechanism and NDEF format. An example of using this specification is included in the Smart Poster RTD.

NFC URI RTD Technical Specification

Provides an efficient way to store Uniform Resource Identifiers (URI) by using the RTD mechanism and NDEF format. An example of using this specification is included in the Smart Poster RTD.

NFC Smart Poster RTD Technical Specification

Defines an NFC Forum Well Known Type to put URLs, SMSs or phone numbers on an NFC tag, or to transport them between devices. The Smart Poster RTD builds on the RTD mechanism and NDEF format and uses the URI RTD and Text RTD as building blocks.

NFC Generic Control RTD Technical Specification

NFC Forum-TS-Generic Control RTD_1.0 has been withdrawn with no replacement.

NFC Signature RTD Technical Specification

Specifies the format used when signing single or multiple NDEF records. Defines the required and optional signature RTD fields, and also provides a list of suitable signature algorithms and certificate types that can be used to create the signature. Does not define or mandate a specific PKI or certification system, or define a new algorithm for use with the Signature RTD. Specification of the certificate verification and revocation process is out of scope.

NFC Device Information RTD Technical Specification

Defines the Device Information record type which conveys fundamental model and identity identification information.
