LEGIC at SECURITY 2008 in Essen/Germany

The leading provider of contactless smart card technology presents enhanced functions of its LEGIC advant technology.

Zurich, August 2008–From 7 to 10 October, LEGIC® Identsystems Ltd, leading provider of contactless smart card technology, will be at the exhibition centre in Essen/Germany (Hall 3.0/Stand 306), presenting new possibilities in the field of contactless smart card technology for personal identification. LEGIC is extending its trusted and proven physical security system, Master-Token System Control™ (MTSC) to include advanced functions to improve safety and user flexibility.

While in many fields of access control, in e-payment and biometric applications, passwords are mostly used, LEGIC’s security concept is based on a physical Master-Token in the form of a contactless smart card. The Master-Token guarantees security thanks to a genetic code that authorises the reading and writing of data. The genetic code can only be transmitted to cards and readers with the Master-Token. At the SECURITY 2008 trade fair, LEGIC will be presenting the latest developments to this trusted and proven system, which will increase opportunities for end users.

Urs Andrin Lampe, Vice President Product Marketing and New Business at LEGIC, explains the advantages of the new functions for end users: “The extra functions of the Master-Token System Control increase control for contactless applications and thus increase security in firms. At the same time, there are new possibilities and business processes for project partners and suppliers. This development is a new step in terms of innovation for the LEGIC technology platform–and thus for our partners and users too–in view of increased security and flexibility.”
