Android NfcProvisioning Sample

This sample demonstrates how to use NFC to provision a new device with a device owner. Device owner is a specialized type of device administrator that can control device security and configuration. This sample itself is not a device owner, but it is a programming app that sends NFC message to an unprovisioned peer device and tells it to set up the specified device owner app.


NFC Provisioning app is nothing but an ordinary Android Beam app that just sends out provisioning values to the peer device. This sample uses the values below.

  • EXTRA_PROVISIONING_DEVICE_ADMIN_PACKAGE_NAME - The package name of the mobile device management application that will be set as the profile owner or device owner.
  • EXTRA_PROVISIONING_LOCALE - The Locale that the device will be set to.
  • EXTRA_PROVISIONING_TIME_ZONE - The time zone AlarmManager that the device will be set to.
  • EXTRA_PROVISIONING_WIFI_SSID - The ssid of the wifi network that should be used during nfc device owner provisioning for downloading the mobile device management application.

Store values in an instance of Properties. Get a byte array representation of the Properties using ByteArrayOutputStream. Create an NdefRecord with the MIME type of DevicePolicyManager.MIME_TYPE_PROVISIONING_NFC. Use NfcAdapter#setNdefPushMessage to set the NdefMessage as the message to be sent.
