New CmStick/B

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.

New CmStick/BMC

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.

News & Innovations

New digital business models powered by CodeMeter
The broad universe of CodeMeter couples license entitlement management with top-of-the-breed encryption
methods to protect the integrity of digital assets from counterfeiting, reverse engineering, and tampering attacks. This unique combination fulfills the requirements of digitized business, immediately propelling even brownfield infrastructures to a high level of security and scalability. Emulating the success of consumer app stores, secure and versatile licensing is the most profitable approach to seize the potential of this industrial revolution.

Industrial sample of the embroidery machine from ZSK Stickmaschinen: CodeMeter encrypts source code, machine code, and sensitive configuration data and stores the digital keys in a preferably hardware-based secure element. The protection capabilities come alongside license lifecycle management to also boost revenues by enabling versatile sales strategies that meet all customers’ demands with modular licensing and pricing.

CmASIC – Security by-design ready for Industrie 4.0 implementations
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
for PLCs.

CodeMeter Embedded 2.2 - Augmented security and new digital business models for all processor-based devices
CodeMeter Embedded 2.2 is a unique runtime environment in the market that supports the complete array of platforms and operating systems intelligent device manufacturers rely upon, including Intel x86, PPC, ARM,
Windows, Linux, Android, VxWorks, and QNX. The modular and scalable design enables developers to integrate only the functionality they need and create a software solution with the smallest footprint possible, the highest
level of security, and the most versatile licensing, all without affecting performance. CodeMeter Embedded 2.2 licenses are fully compatible with their desktop counterpart so that even complex architectures that include
industrial computers, mobile devices, embedded systems, and microcontrollers can benefit from the same core features: software protection, license lifecycle management, and security mechanisms. Among the numerous enhancements introduced with CodeMeter Embedded 2.2 are higher performance, multi-Interface support, OPC UA support, and TPM support.
