Wibu-Systems is an innovative technology leader in the global software license lifecycle management market. In its mission to monetize the business of ISVs and IDMs and enable new customer-centric business schemes, Wibu-Systems has developed CodeMeter, a suite of interoperable solutions available for computer, mobile, embedded, PLC, and microcontroller systems that protects the integrity of digital assets, technical know-how, and intellectual property against piracy, reverse engineering, tampering, sabotage, and cyberattacks.
CodeMeter encrypts software, firmware, and sensitive data with the strongest cryptographic algorithms and methods. The licenses generated are stored in secure elements, including industry-grade portable hardware, software, and cloud containers. CodeMeter seamless integration with existing back-office processes, such as ERP, CRM, and e-commerce platforms, provides an additional boost to operational performance and logistics cost savings.
CodeMeter is the universal technology that Wibu-Systems has created to provide intelligent device manufacturers with: - Protection against piracy and reverse engineering. - Secure and easy license and entitlement management, which includes the creation of flexible licensing models, the integration of their delivery, and the management of their complete lifecycle with your existing back office systems. - Security to safeguard your users against tampering
and attacks from third parties.
The highlight traits of CodeMeter are - Uniformity: one framework for multiple platforms that supports a plethora of license containers - Comprehensiveness: one gateway to CRM, ERP, and e-commerce solutions - Robustness: strong encryption that no hacking contest could break - Simplicity: simple
integration and transparent customization - Uniqueness: one dongle for standalone and network scenarios available to multiple vendors at once - Legacy: support and security updates delivered constantly since 1989.
The CmStick/B is part of the CodeMeter portfolio, has no flash memory, bases on SiP technology for the integration of the USB connector inside the metal body of the dongle, with the SLM97 controller from Infineon for secure key storage in a smart card chip, USB 3.1 interface for fast data transfer, and the U9 flash controller and hyMap® firmware from Hyperstone for safe flash handling and reliable data management.
With CmStick/BMC, Wibu-Systems steps up to meet the needs of intelligent device manufacturers and introduces new innovative hardware in a compact and elegant layout.
The USB connector no longer projects from the body of the unit, but has become an integral part of the case itself. This new engineering approach shrinks down the overall size of the dongle to become the smallest model with flash memory available in the world market, and makes it resistant to pressure, vibrations, and humidity.
Wibu-Systems has developed a password provider for the Totally Integrated Automation (TIA) Portal V14 SP1 or higher of Siemens based on their Password API. The engineering data that are stored in the TIA Portal are often very sensitive in nature. While online teamwork is highly effective, logical access controls are paramount to make sure that only entitled users can view and edit only those projects they have full rights to.
With Siemens’ Password API, Wibu-Systems created a password provider that streamlines know-how and write protection and, in turn, increases the access control and engineering data protection measures. Rather than being susceptible to disclosure, passwords can now be safely stored in Wibu-Systems’ CmDongles, hardware secure repositories that come in several form factors. Access controls by timer or unit counter govern the ability to access or edit the engineering data.
The new generation of CmASIC provides intelligent device manufacturers with out-of-the box security and entitlement management. By embedding the security module into the endpoint, the endpoint is clearly identified, sensitive data, like encryption keys, production records, and configuration schemes, are safeguarded, and the module itself is accessible only by physically and logically tampering with the endpoint. The security controller is certified to run in an extremely wide temperature range from -40° C to +105° C, making it the ideal component for industrial applications.
Integrating CmASIC is also very easy: the module is delivered in a VQFN-32, 5x5 mm chip size package, it provides both a USB and an SPI communication interface, and supports all mainstream operating systems via
CodeMeter Embedded, including Windows, Linux, and macOS for PCs, Embedded Linux and Windows
Embedded for embedded systems, Linux RT, VxWorks, and QNX for RTOS, and CODESYS, B&R, and Rockwell
