Apple iOS and Android are supported.
The platform also supports bi-directional encrypted messaging between cloud app and edge devices. This may include any binary data such as text, files, code, etc. It also supports Firmware Update Over the Air (FOTA), and secure hosting of application software in hardware secure element (in addition to encryption key storage).
Between cloud & smartphone; HTTPS over TLS 1.2. Between smartphone and IIoT edge devices (via a LEGIC Security Module); mutual authentication with AES-128 session keys. Between the Security Module and the host controller of the IIoT device, communication is encrypted via AES-128/256 or 3DES. Credential data passing over all these links are further encrypted using symmetrical encryption keys based on AES-128 that are stored in a Hardware Security Module of LEGIC’s Trusted Service.

Credentials are data uniquely associated with an individual user. Credentials include data defining a person’s unique identity, when and where and for how long a user may use a device, which applications are available to the user, e-money balance for e-payment applications, data access privileges, etc. Credentials are provisioned by an (optional) cloud management system and securely stored on a users’ smartcard or smartphone to give them managed access to devices, data and infrastructure.
9. How many applications can a single smartcard/smartphone support simultaneously with LEGIC’s platform?
127 for 4k advant smartcards, for smartphones you are only limited by the memory size of the smartphone.
10. In addition to the embedded authentication system, what multi-factor authentication is supported by LEGIC’s security platform?
Security can be scaled up with smartphones by using mobile OS security features like fingerprint/facial recognition, or with an ID solution provider defined PIN that is entered via the smartphone. For smartcard based applications, measures can be implemented on the reader terminal (biometrical sensors, PIN pad, etc.). For both solutions, any combination can be implemented.
LEGIC Connect runs in IBM cloud hosted data centers located in Switzerland and Germany. Hardware Security Modules (HSMs) are run in a secure, audited environment within Swiss borders only.
