About us

Wibu-Systems is an innovative technology leader in the global software license lifecycle management market. In its mission to monetize the business of ISVs and IDMs and enable new customer-centric business schemes, Wibu-Systems has developed CodeMeter, a suite of interoperable solutions available for computer, mobile, embedded, PLC, and microcontroller systems that protects the integrity of digital assets, technical know-how, and intellectual property against piracy, reverse engineering, tampering, sabotage, and cyberattacks.

CodeMeter encrypts software, firmware, and sensitive data with the strongest cryptographic algorithms and methods. The licenses generated are stored in secure elements, including industry-grade portable hardware, software, and cloud containers. CodeMeter seamless integration with existing back-office processes, such as ERP, CRM, and e-commerce platforms, provides an additional boost to operational performance and logistics cost savings.

Products and services

CodeMeter is the universal technology that Wibu-Systems has created to provide intelligent device manufacturers with:

  • Protection against piracy and reverse engineering.
  • Secure and easy license and entitlement management, which includes the creation of flexible licensing models, the integration of their delivery, and the management of their complete lifecycle with your existing back office systems.
  • Security to safeguard your users against tampering and attacks from third parties. The highlight traits of CodeMeter are
  • Uniformity: one framework for multiple platforms that supports a plethora of license containers
  • Comprehensiveness: one gateway to CRM, ERP, and e-commerce solutions
  • Robustness: strong encryption that no hacking contest could break
  • Simplicity: simple integration and transparent customization
  • Uniqueness: one dongle for standalone and network scenarios available to multiple vendors at once
  • Legacy: support and security updates delivered constantly since 1989.

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.

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.

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.

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.
