16 January 2023 - People everywhere are increasingly using their smartphones to interact with the world. Tasks such as opening home or office doors, buying an eTicket for public transportation or events, sharing a vehicle, or interacting with industrial machines, it’s convenient, easy and secure to do so with your smartphone.
At the core of these new possibilities is the secure distribution of mobile credentials – digital information that is distributed to mobile devices over-the-air. Mobile credentials give end-users permission to access, use, rent, purchase or monitor things based on a user’s rights, time, place, or any other information that is relevant to each service.
LEGIC Connect: a secure and globally available credentialing service
LEGIC is proud to announce that LEGIC Connect now provides its core mobile credentialing service to over 14 million end-users in over 200 countries and territories. This is an impressive growth rate of over 50% per year! Provided as a trusted, cloud-based Software as a Service (SaaS), LEGIC Connect creates and securely deploys mobile credentials to Android and iOS smartphones anytime and anywhere in the world. Our customers include large companies, hotel chains, campuses, governments and hundreds of system integrators who leverage mobile credentials to create useful and innovative mobile-based products and services.
LEGIC Connect comprises an OWASP-ASVS audited Trusted Service hosted on AWS, a Mobile SDK plus LEGIC Security Modules which include an RF transceiver (Bluetooth, NFC, RFID) and tamper-proof Secure Element (SM-6300, SM-6310). These modules are embedded in infrastructure-devices such as electronic locks, mobility vehicles or IoT sensors. Together, these components establish a cryptographically secure, bidirectional channel from backend administration system to smartphone to infrastructure. In addition to credentials, any data needing secure distribution to end devices such as firmware, cryptographic keys, whitelists or certificates can be transported via LEGIC Connect.
