Enabling Smarter Cities

LEGIC’s Security Platform gives developers of Smart City services the power to authenticate and manage urban infrastructure, resources, vehicles and the people that use them based on secure online or offline connectivity.

Don't just manage things

Manage how people use things.

By 2050, 70% of the world’s population will live in cities. Smart City technology implementing secure connectivity, authentication and credential management will be essential to satisfy the mobility, housing, security, infrastructure, and educational needs of the growing population.

At LEGIC, we believe designers of Smart City applications need to manage how people use infrastructure and services such as buildings, shops, transportation, schools and attractions. Properly managing users and how they interact with a city’s resources increases security, convenience, and efficiency.

As a leader in contactless smartcard and smartphone authentication and credential management, LEGIC’s Security Platform enables Smart City service providers to securely manage users while personalizing their offerings. This results in services that are more attractive and usable, with lower operational costs.

City Infrastructure

Matching parking, public transportation, infrastructure access, tourism and social inclusion services to individual requirements depends on secure asset, device and credential management. This is where we excel.


For mobility services such as car sharing, micro-mobility, fleet management or e-charging networks, the use of LEGIC technology enables secure authentication of users as well as e-payment solutions via smartcards or smartphones, both online and offline.

Smart Living

LEGIC’s ICs and software services enable secure, autonomous access control to homes and rooms, home sharing, and personalized management of environmental, lighting and security conditions based on individual credentials.


Automotive OEMs are adopting virtual key systems for vehicle entry, ignition, personalization and trunk delivery. Hardware-based security, online/offline operation and dynamic management of a user’s key configuration over-the-air is made possible by LEGIC.

Smart Retail

Smartphone-based retail services are the future of mobile shopping. Matching products and shops with mobile consumers depends on Bluetooth® communications, customer profiling and secure authentication of shoppers on the go.


Campus applications from classroom access to vending to follow-me printing and many other services become contactless and user-friendly thanks to LEGIC’s technology which offers scalable security and convenient integration of smartcards and smartphones.
