Logical access and contactless credentials combined on one device.

LEGIC Identisystems Ltd : 04 March, 2008  (New Product)
Transponder technology incorporated into LEGIC contactless devices to provide logical access to resources and services.
LEGIC card-in-card solutions combine the world of cards with the one of applications. Proven LEGIC technology is integrated as virtual transponders in third party providers' smart cards. This enables for example mobile phones with ticketing applications, credit cards with member cards or logical PC access with access controls to be combined on one single medium.

Well known contactless LEGIC credentials such as cards, key fobs or wrist bands are used in business and leisure areas for typical applications such as physical access control, time & attendance or cashless payment. Separately, additional media such as USB tokens or contactless smart cards are used for logical access to PCs and Networks. Up until this point two separate worlds, which can now be combined onto one single chip with the LEGIC card-in-card solutions. The media for PC access can thus be extended to be simultaneously used for contactless access control; or an NFC (Near Field Communication) enabled mobile phone can be used as a ticket or a credit card for member access to a gym. These are but a few examples of the convergence of technology worlds.

In order to make this possible, the LEGIC transponder is now also available as a virtual transponder, which is emulated on the respective smart card. Thus resulting in countless possibilities to combine proven contactless LEGIC applications with third party products. The new prospects are endless, hence securing end-user systems for the future thanks to open smart card architecture. Combinations such as these generate huge saving potential through the use of a one-chip-solution.

At CeBIT 2008, LEGIC will present a great variety of new possibilities in concrete applications as well as the processes for a flexible appliance of the LEGIC functionality on a third party smart card. Initial products from third party providers, which combine physical access control based on contactless LEGIC technology with logical access to PCs, are already available. The German chip card manufacturer and IT access solutions provider Winter AG, a long-term licence partner of LEGIC, has already included a one-chip-solution such as Dual Interface Chip Cards and USB Tokens into its product portfolio.
