February 1, 2017 – The next generation of CodeMeter Embedded will be introduced by Wibu-Systems at Embedded World, Nuremberg, hall 4, booth 540, 14-16 March. CodeMeter Embedded 2.0 is a runtime environment that supports an array of platforms and operating systems intelligent device manufacturers (IDMs) rely upon, including Intel x86, PPC, ARM, Windows, Linux, Android, VxWorks, and QNX. CodeMeter Embedded 2.0 licenses are fully compatible with their desktop counterpart, so that complex architectures that include industrial computers, mobile devices, embedded systems, and microcontrollers can benefit from the score features: software protection, license lifecycle management, and security mechanisms.
CodeMeter Embedded 2.0 will be available for commercial use at the end of the first quarter of 2017 and will include numerous enhancements:
- A use of license information caching in CodeMeter Embedded 2.0, previously available only in the desktop version of the technology, provides access to licenses even in the event of concurrent and simultaneous access from different applications.
- Battery-operated devices also require a special design for the hardware secure elements; besides the more common interfaces for USB dongles, SD, microSD, CF, and CFast cards, CodeMeter Embedded 2.0 supports SPI communications as well as custom made ASICs (CmASICs).
- CodeMeter Embedded 2.0 is fully integrated in Unified Automation ANSI-C based OPC UA SDK where it brings an additional security layer to the native protections of the OPC UA standard; cryptographic keys, trust lists, and sensitive license-based configuration files are stored in the smart card controller embedded in all CodeMeter hardware secure elements.
- CodeMeter Embedded 2.0 can also interact with software-based licenses, which can be bound to a Trusted Platform Module in the target system for a higher level of security.
