There are countless reasons for why you want to be a partner of Wibu-Systems: It might be the safety of a long-term investment, or the future-proof solutions, or the dedicated vertical focus, or the close cooperation with the team at all levels.
As if this was not enough, no other vendor has ever produced top-notch technological innovations as Wibu-System has done with unprecedented reliability.
Starting with CodeMeter 6.10 and CodeMeter License Central 2.20, software vendors can define whether and for how long their users can transfer licenses offline, leaving users free to either use the license directly on the server or borrow the license temporarily and transfer it to their local CmContainer for up to the maximum timeframe allowed.
The excellence of CmDongles with flash mass storage starts with its ingenious security design: all hardware secure elements equipped with NAND flash memory couple Infineon’s EAL5+ evaluated smart card chips with Hyperstone’s flash memory controllers, characterized by high quality and endurance standards, advanced flash memory management software, and long term component availability.
The new CmASIC is recommended for small devices and embedded boards; among its innovative technical features, CodeMeter ASIC supports both USB and SPI communications, operates in environments subject to extreme temperature fluctuations (-40°C to +105°C), and is delivered in a 5x5 mm chip size VQFN-32 package.
The ANSI C based OPC UA SDK from Unified Automation integrates CodeMeter Embedded technology and offers manufacturers in the automation industry a ready-to-use set of tools to incorporate software licensing and greater security features in OPC UA architectures. Symmetric and asymmetric encryption keys are securely stored in CmDongles, ensuring the identity of the devices and the confidentiality and integrity of data.
Trusted Platform Modules add to the already vast array of hardware secure elements CodeMeter supports. The software runs only on the designated machine, device, or embedded system where the CmDongle is mounted (incl. USB dongles, memory cards, ASICs and TPMs) and provides the functionalities associated with the secure license, safe from any sort of hacking.
