Days of Trustworthy Electronics 2024

2024-06-04 - 2024-06-05
Fraunhofer EMFT, Munich, Germany

The Velektronik Platform for trustworthy electronics invites industry experts and the tech community to the "Days of Trustworthy Electronics 2024". This event will explore the latest advancements and project results from the "Trustworty Electronics" initiative by the BMBF – Federal Ministry of Education and Research, supporting Germany's technological sovereignty.

Talk Highlight: Trusted Digital Identities

Wibu-Systems will present the groundbreaking VE-ASCOT R&D project, that the company coordinated in collaboration with Siemens AG, Infineon Technology AG, Bielefeld University, Fraunhofer Institute SIT, abd KIT. This project addresses the significant challenges in the manufacture of complex electronic systems, which are heightened by supply chain issues and increasing cyber threats. Our focus will be on creating a digital identity (DID) for electronic systems through a blockchain-based "Chain of Trust" (CoT).

Key Topics

  • Chain of Trust (CoT): A secure, blockchain-based series of data record for documenting production steps, commissioning processes, and hardware characteristics to ensure their trustworthiness and reliability.
  • Cryptographic Trust Anchor: The CoT begins with a secure, verifiable cryptographic trust anchor, stored in a secure element (SE).
  • Integration and Expansion: The CoT grows over time, integrating data records from production to maintenance, allowing for comprehensive and independent verification of system trustworthiness.
  • CodeMeter: Wibu-Systems' CodeMeter technology supports flexible data storage, signing, and validation within CmDongles, ensuring data integrity and authenticity.
  • Boot Process Security: Automatic validation of the CoT during system startup ensures secure and reliable operation.
  • Fingerprinting: Unique identification of assembly groups to detect manipulations, anomalies, and counterfeiting.

Join us to learn how these innovations contribute to the trustworthiness and security of electronic systems.
