March 7, 2017– Wibu-Systems has been championing cybersecurity and software license management for decades. At Embedded World, hall 4, booth 540, Nuremberg, Germany, March 14-16, Wibu-Systems will present its new generation of CmASIC, a module that Intelligent Device Manufacturers (IDMs) can directly embed into their boards to provide out-of-the box security and entitlement management.
With Wibu-Systems’ CmASIC, the symmetric and asymmetric keys (128-bit AES, SHA-256, 2048-bit RSA, or 224-bit ECC) are securely stored in the non-volatile memory of the CC EAL 5+, FIPS 140-2, and EMVCo certified Infineon chip that powers the CmASIC itself. The security controller is certified to run in a temperature range from -40° C to +105° C, making it an ideal component for industrial applications.
The module is delivered in a VQFN-32, 5x5 mm chip size package. It provides both a USB and an SPI communication interface, which allow for its integration in USB devices as well as in small energy-saving devices that only feature SPI interfaces. On the software side, CmASIC 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 for PLCs. All VxWorks 7 Security Profile users will find Wibu-Systems’ technology included in the RTOS of their choice and can upgrade to CodeMeter Security to benefit also from copy protection, license management, and hardware-based key storage.
CmASIC is part of the CodeMeter family of technology solutions that couple license entitlement management with encryption methods to protect the integrity of digital assets from counterfeiting, reverse engineering, and tampering attacks. This combination fulfills the requirements of digitized business, immediately propelling even brownfield infrastructures to a high level of security and scalability. With its multi-layer concept, CodeMeter works with software and hardware-based security elements and numerous back office solution vendors to provide license lifecycle management.
