Key and Authorization

Full control over all your applications in a mobile environment

LEGIC Orbit is the next generation of a secure key and authorization management. It allows a random generation of
application keys and the convenient, instant and worldwide distribution of all configuration data via smartphone to readers.

  • Secure management of cryptographic keys
  • Instant and secure key distribution over the air
  • Smartphone serves as a tool for the complete reader configuration
  • Supports mobile ID with LEGIC neon

Secure key and
authorization management

for full system control

You define the required security level of your system and use as many different keys as necessary.
The right to configure readers can be freely assigned to any trusted person on site.

To avoid sacrificing security for convenience, LEGIC designed Orbit.
It combines a highly secure cryptographic solution with a very easy way of usage:

Random key generation

To prevent manipulation of customer-specific data and to maintain data integrity, only state-of-the-art encryption methods (e.g. AES) are used. Within seconds, user-specific application keys are generated randomly in a certified, financial industry grade environment (Hardware Security Module - HSM). These application keys are dedicated to you and never visible to anybody.

Secure key storage

Cryptographic keys are the central element for secure ID solutions and IoT projects and must be well protected. Security and control go along with convenience, as the HSM guarantees that keys are always stored securely and are available anytime. In addition, keys can be permanently removed if required or necessary.

Flexible distribution

The cryptographic keys are distributed over the air to all your infrastructure components. LEGIC Orbit enables the secure distribution of your custom application keys from the HSM of the LEGIC Trusted Service to the Secure Element of LEGIC reader ICs. This is end-to-end security at its best, anytime and anywhere.

Secure customer applications

LEGIC Orbit adds security to customer applications

Based on the implemented end-to-end encryption, LEGIC Orbit enables you to control any other mobile service. LEGIC Orbit secures the new credential technology LEGIC neon which is at the heart of your mobile ID solution. It also protects messaging from your microcontroller back to your management system. Starting with LEGIC neon files and messaging, a wide range of different applications are possible. All of them benefit from LEGIC Orbit, giving you peace of mind that security is taken care of.

Universal configuration tool

LEGIC Orbit enables you to turn an already used smartphone into an universal configuration tool and replaces complex and costly hand-held devices. To load custom data or keys into your reader, just use a smart device with your own mobile app based on the LEGIC Mobile SDK for easy commissioning. This means that it works with any trusted person on site. The data is always secure and cannot be read by the mobile app as everything is end-to-end encrypted.


To benefit from the LEGIC Orbit advantages, all you need is a LEGIC Connect account and compatible LEGIC reader ICs.
LEGIC Orbit is an integral part of these components.
