LEGIC Master-Token System-Control (MTSC)

Manage your ID system

LEGIC's technology platform includes all required elements to develop
and manage an individual ID system and to be in control of security.

LEGIC Master-Token System-Control

Security and control
in your hands

The patented LEGIC Master-Token System-Control is a worldwide unique security concept.
Instead of protecting administrative rights in an ID system with unstable passwords, security is linked to a special, physical smartcard.
The owner of a Master-Token has control of an installation and is independent.

The principle of the Master-Token System-Control corresponds to an evolutionary family tree. Each Master-Token has its own genetic code which is transfered to the identification media during initialization and to the reader during configuration of the latter.

Master-Token-Zones establish boundaries between different transponder technologies, different transponder generations and the source of a Master-Token. The concept of Master-Token-Zones ensures that a Master-Token always meets the security standard of the relevant transponder technology.

The Master-Token can be kept more securely, transferred to trustworthy people and be removed again at any time. Only the Master-Token enables authorization of readers and creation of identification media or smartcards with individually defined administration rights, known as Sub-Master-Tokens.

The Master-Token System-Control as a security concept has made it possible to design the LEGIC technology platform openly and flexibly. It is therefore possible to combine applications from different providers in one system and to add new applications at any time.

entryMTSC at its best!

Do you always know where your password or key is?
Do you intend to be independent from the supply chain?

With a physical Master-Token System-Control, you always know exactly where your secrets are stored.
Furthermore, you are fully supplier independent as you have everything needed in your own hands.

LEGIC’s MTSC is the recognized and proven solution for secure and easy management of contactless smartcard applications.
The Master-Token itself is the central element in this security concept and grants full control over the system management.

Until now, the LEGIC patented security concept has only been available to all ID Network Partners.
An extension of this concept is the new entryMTSC, a project-based Master-Token that all customers can purchase, irrespective of partner status!


The entryMTSC is available through any LEGIC license partner or directly on the LEGIC "Secure Extranet". It is sent in a box containing three cards (1 GAM, 1 IAM and 1 SAM) protected against any electromagnetic field fraud.

Businesses with hundreds of cards with a specific need for security and sovereignty for their contactless applications can benefit from Master-Token System-Control. With the LEGIC entryMTSC you have the master key for the deployment of one application in your hand.  The entryMTSC is future-proof and scalable: multi-application is possible by simply adding an additional IAM/SAM. Experience the potential of LEGIC MTSC in a simple and cost-efficient way by trying the entryMTSC without becoming a LEGIC license partner. If you later intend to expand to more than one application, you can buy another entryMTSC or become a LEGIC licensee.
