Trusted service launched for contactless card applications

LEGIC Identisystems Ltd : 03 September, 2014  (Company News)
Legic is attending Security 2014 in Essen with its new range of products and services designed around contactless chip-card applications
Trusted service launched for contactless card applications

At the Security 2014 trade show in Essen, a new trusted service called LEGIC IDConnect is going live. Thanks to IDConnect, contactless chip-card applications can be safely and easily transferred to mobile phones. In addition to a trusted service manager hub, which guarantees the connection with the mobile network operators, IDConnect also offers a range of software components which enable the easy use of NFC and BLE in daily project business.

From 23 - 26 September 2014, Security show 2014 is taking place in Essen, Germany. The show marks the official date of the market launch of LEGIC IDConnect – a unique aggregation service for ID applications. With LEGIC IDConnect, everyone is able to use smartphones with any LEGIC advant and NXP mifare application. Mobile phones become door-openers, tickets, time-recorders and much more.

Mobile ID – when the mobile phone is transformed into an ID card

Mobile ID isn't just the start of a new trend, but a new era in the security sector. The advantages of an immediate assigning of rights on mobile phones are highly convincing: a visitor doesn't have to wait for his guest badge to get a coffee at a vending machine. Operators save costs and enhance convenience by reducing their ID-issuing processes. But Mobile ID doesn't just convince from the technical point of view. End customers also enjoy the advantage of consistently having all of their cards available on their mobile phone.

IDConnect controls everything

The idea of being able to do everything with a mobile phone that you can also do with a contactless chip card isn't new. What is new, however, is a single service assuming all activities: the authentication, data processing and communication between the back-end system and mobile network operator are all ensured by IDConnect. The advant on mobile applet from LEGIC is also stored on the secure element of the mobile device. This way, LEGIC takes on the role of a so-called service provider trusted service manager (SP TSM) which is connected with the root TSM of a mobile network operator.

Platform independence

LEGIC IDConnect convinces with its extensive openness and platform independence. Thanks to its support of LEGIC advant and NXP mifare, it can be easily integrated in existing installations. Its independence with regard to mobile network operators, SIM providers, secure elements and wallet providers means IDConnect is universally usable. It also supports NFC (Near Field Communication) and BLE (Bluetooth Low Energy) and is therefore technology-independent. With its straightforward API technology, LEGIC IDConnect can be integrated in all back-end systems, whether access control systems, hotel property management systems or biometric systems. LEGIC IDConnect is the most straightforward and lowest-cost way of securely bringing smart cards onto mobile phones.
