Enabling New Business Models with Industrial Grade CmCards and CodeMeter Security
Excerpt from the talk of Guenther Fischer, Wibu-Systems' Sr. Consultant, Licensing and Protection, at SD Association Global Workshop Europe 2021
This live event was designed to educate leading European technology vendors about SD frameworks and specifications, market trends in a very competitive ecosystem, and memory card security best practices.
The SD Association featured presentations from some of its members - Smile Electronics, Tuxera, Western Digital, and Wibu-Systems.
In our segment, we illustrated how hardware containers for software licenses include not just the traditional USB dongles, but also ASIC chips and memory cards in different form factors, including SD cards, microSD cards, and CFast cards. We covered their design and the security components that were added for this specific scope and showed a number of success stories; companies like Rockwell Automation / Allen Bradley, Rohde & Schwarz, Maroxx, Fritz Stephan, and Metrohm are using them in all sorts of application fields, ranging from industrial contexts, to gambling, medicine and life science.
