Germany based Wibu-Systems has selected Infineon Technologies as the ideal partner able to provide an EAL5+ certified security controller with integrated USB interface to secure its CodeMeter solution product line. The SLE97 based on ARM® SecurCore® SC300TM with 32 bit offers up to 1 Mbyte SOLID FLASHTM memory space. The USB interface follows the USB2.0 full speed specification.
CodeMeter is Wibu-Systems’ flagship solution for software protection, licensing and security. It is used within hardware devices, secure files as well as for cloud applications. Looking at future markets, WIBU-Systems has broadened its focus to embrace the field of industrial automation. With products, devices, customers’ data and entire plants put more and more at risk by the extensive use of remote control systems, Wibu-Systems is now also providing the industrial sector with technologies designed to protect important assets from tampering and piracy.
“The embedded system world is a niche we are more and more specializing in and where we are expressing a top global leadership”, says Oliver Winzenried, CEO and founder of Wibu-Systems. “The SLE97 security chip from Infineon Technologies will be embedded in all our tokens and memory cards will provide customers with higher encryption performance, larger capacity for license storage, long term component support, and above all, a vaster temperature range which perfectly matches the needs of the industrial field.”
“Data security and system integrity are the building blocks for connected systems such as Industry 4.0 or the Internet of Things. As a leading semiconductor supplier with deep system and market understanding, we are committed to offer the industry tailor-made solutions for secure embedded applications,“ said Carsten Loschinsky, Vice President and General Manager at Infineon’s Chip Card & Security division.
