A new member in the CodeMeter family for software protection and monetization on microcontrollers and FPGAs
CodeMeter µEmbedded, the new lean software protection solution, launches at Embedded World 2016
Karlsruhe, Germany – Wibu-Systems is ready for business and set to launch CodeMeter µEmbedded, the highly anticipated version of its flagship technology that offers unique protection and licensing features to software developers of microcontrollers and Field Programmable Gate Arrays. The solution is ready to be demonstrated to Embedded World visitors at Wibu-Systems, booth 540 in hall 4, along with the additional components of the CodeMeter family – CodeMeter Runtime, made with personal and industrial computers in mind, and CodeMeter Embedded, meant for mobile, embedded, and PLC systems.
With an incredibly lean footprint of 60 Kbytes for the loader code, Wibu-Systems has stripped the functions down to the bare minimum without compromising on security in any way or form. Licenses are associated with the unique identification number of the system and activated during the manufacturing process itself. The encryption and activation keys are stored in a protected memory area for managing the licenses for specific device features, monitoring production volumes, securely transmitting program commands, and providing secure updates to the system.
Infineon Technologies has selected CodeMeter µEmbedded as the new plugin for their developing platform DAVETM; Wibu-Systems technology encrypts and signs the program code of the microcontroller family XMC4000 with a simple and effective graphic user interface. Infineon has set up a dedicated corner for security applications at their booth 360 in hall 5, where Embedded World visitors can go to learn more about the new technology.
Oliver Winzenried, CEO and founder of Wibu-Systems, states: “Intelligent devices manufacturers now have the means to encrypt their software, monetize it, and safeguard it from tampering attacks regardless of the size of their system. The addition of CodeMeter µEmbedded to our CodeMeter lineup and its compatibility with the existing modules of the Codemeter family have enormous value for the industrial market. Our support for the entire range of platforms in the industry is going to be a game changer that is sure to ignite engaging discussions with all the experts of the embedded world.”
