Enabling secure and convenient mobility applications
Mobile services such as car and bike sharing, fleet management or an e-charging station network provide new mobility concepts that bring higher efficiency, eco-friendliness and flexible solutions to individual mobility.
The trend of no longer owning resources but using them as required and sharing them with others has become increasingly popular in the past few years with car, bike and scooter sharing – a market which is constantly growing
In the sharing economy, security plays an important role for providers as well as users. Vehicle access via smartcard or smartphone must also ensure that user security as well as system and data integrity are guaranteed.
Along with security, offline operation in parking garages and other shielded areas must be possible without comprising business models. User-specific configuration of vehicles based on personal preferences such as settings of navigation destinations, climate preference, seats and radio stations are playing an ever- greater role.
Private sharing, also called peer-to-peer sharing, is becoming more acceptable: while you are not using your own vehicle, you can make it available to others. A vehicle’s capacitiy is better used, owners earn money, and participating drivers have access to a fleet of different vehicles.
Benefits of LEGIC solution for sharing
With LEGIC’s technology, sharing participants receive dynamic authorizations to utilize vehicles, and are allowed to drive for a booked period. Thanks to Bluetooth Low Energy, LEGIC’s technology enables offline use and, with its flexible design, adapts to the specific application and business model of each service provider.
- Online and offline use are always guaranteed
- Sensitive information is managed by hardware-based security
- Simple extension of a customer-specific mobile app by a dynamic, secure authorization management
Corporate fleets, consisting of passenger cars, trucks or also special-purpose vehicles such as forklifts, cranes or construction machinery, are an important mobility element for companies and often the central basis of business operations.
Vehicles must be used in a flexible way and managed in a transparent manner. Alongside the traditional key, fleet vehicles also integrate an employee’s identity as an access medium and more and more frequently accept the user’s smartphone as a mobile key. Along with verifying the driver’s license or, in special-purpose vehicles, a training certificate, bookings must record time stamps, be assigned to a cost center or issued to people outside the organization. Together with smartcard access, smartphones also provide for open and flexible systems as well as second factor authentication for securely accessing fleet vehicles.
LEGIC’s technology enables the combination of smartcards with a dynamic authorization structure configured via smartphone, plus biometric authentication options such as fingerprint or facial recognition.
Benefits of LEGIC solution for fleet management
LEGIC’s technology adapts to the individual needs of each system, integrates existing user populations and enables flexible smartphone access based on the authorization structure defined by the management system.
- Support of RFID smartcards combined with mobile technologies as a secure second factor for identification or as a fallback solution
- Flexible access management
- Security remains within the company
Virtual vehicle keys
Car keys are becoming more and more practical and convenient – today, modern remote keys remain in the driver’s pocket when opening and starting the vehicle.
Transferring these functionalities onto a smartphone makes the smartphone the best car key of all times.
Multiple authorized users, the easy and secure transfer of a key, the revocation or the time restriction of driving authorizations and especially the security of the mobile vehicle key pose challenges to system manufacturers.
LEGIC implements state-of-the-art security standards with regards to individual key management. This ensures that sovereignty over the security system lies solely with the operator.
Benefits of LEGIC solution for virtual vehicle keys
The LEGIC security platform not only enables a convenient mobile car key via Bluetooth Low Energy, but also allows the integration of NFC or smartcards as alternatives for vehicle access. With LEGIC technology, a validation can be given, rights overwritten or revoked, and the underlying cryptographic key material can be dynamically and remotely managed in real time.
- Authorizations can be made available to and withdrawn from the respective users quickly and easily at any time
- Secure management and storage of key material thanks to HSM (Hardware Security Module) and SE (Secure Element)
Mobility as a service is becoming more and more popular. Standardized tickets for public transport are increasingly being replaced by personalized, digital solutions.
Users can now identify themselves with their smartphone or smartcard in every tram, bus, metro, shared bike, taxi or autonomous vehicle. Individual mobility preferences as well as flexible, customized routing are possible based on dynamic login information via smartphone.
Benefits of LEGIC solution for public transport
LEGIC technology not only improves the convenience for users and service providers in these new ecosystems, but also enables secure processing of individual credentials. This also facilitates a gradual migration and parallel operation with pre-existing mobile and/or smartcard solutions.
- Seamless integration in systems with existing credentials
- Support of migration scenarios
- Secure and flexible solution for implementing customer-specific mobile services with smart devices
Driving into a narrow car park and leaning out of the window to press a ticket button that opens a gate is time-consuming and inconvenient. Billing for parking spaces based on ticket machines or point-of-sale terminals will soon be a thing of the past
With a mobile ticket on a driver’s smartphone, the barrier opens automatically via a mobile app and you can enter and exit in a convenient and hands-free manner. Combined with a corresponding navigation app, individual parking spaces can be pre-booked, drivers guided to their space, and the mobile booking automatically redeemed at the car park. Billing occurs directly via a user’s smartphone.
A mobile ticket ensures greater efficiency for users and operators, especially for short time use of parking space, e.g. for suppliers or visitors.
Benefits of LEGIC solution for parking
Along with smart access, LEGIC technology enables the secure allocation of parking tickets, supports different billing methods and provides a flexible platform which is especially suited to public parking spaces.
- End-to-end security
- Enables the implementation of secure mobile ID and IoT solutions
- Secure user identification and seamless integration with mobile applications
Refueling or recharging
Next-generation drive systems now work with electricity. These vehicles no longer require traditional filling stations; “fueling” today means finding an unmanned power socket via an app.
Charging stations require a secure, but at the same time open technology to connect different online ecosystems with one another. Users must be able to clearly identify themselves to enable secure end-to-end authentication and payment.
An intelligent charging station and fuel pump infrastructure recognizes different users and user groups through the use of modern smartphone technology and RFID cards. Each user is free to choose whether to use a smartphone or smartcard solution to be correctly and unequivocally authenticated.
LEGIC’s platform also supports offline operation, thus enabling complete service coverage, even for stations with no network connection.
Benefits of LEGIC solution for refueling or recharging
Provisions for standardized contracts and region-specific accounting regulations are supported by LEGIC technology.
- More than 10,000 electric charging stations equipped with LEGIC reader technology
- Easy integration into various existing systems for access or authorization management
