The Internet of Things (IoT) is transforming production facilities into smart factories, utilities into smart grids, constructions into smart buildings. As the industrial IoT is gradually becoming all-pervasive on a global scale and tags, sensors, embedded computers, and control systems are interconnected over the Internet, the risk of hacker attacks is increasing.
Wibu-Systems has intensified its successful cooperation with Wind River® to offer a deep integration of CodeMeter® into VxWorks®, the world’s most widely deployed commercial RTOS.
The result is a fully scalable solution that features best-of-breed security for devices and data, IP protection, and additional licensing management options to expand business opportunities.
Together, Wibu-Systems and Wind River offer a comprehensive turnkey solution that encompasses the following benefits:
License and Entitlement Management
Hardware-, Software-, and Cloud-based Key Storage
The security highlights provided by CodeMeter consist mainly of:
Deep integration: The CodeMeter technology is integrated into the VxWorks Workbench for a seamless use of the encryption mechanisms. The decryption module ExEngine is integrated into the loader process of VxWorks.
Internal Certification Authority: The CA produces, signs, and manages the required certificates necessary to enable the Secure Boot process and in turn protect applications from tampering.
Secure Runtime Loader: The essential core for integrity and know-how protection from piracy and reverse engineering is built on a combination of AES decryption and digital signature verification of kernel modules and real-time processes.
An unparalleled range of form factors for secure license containers: Software licenses and software encryption keys can be stored in the complete range of CmDongles and CmActLicenses; all hardware form factors come with smart card technology embedded for top security performance.
