embedded world 2017: Embeddable security module from Wibu-Systems enables brownfield security, wide software support

At embedded world 2017 in Nuremburg, Germany, Wibu-Systems will launch the next-generation CmASIC module, an embeddable security and device management IC that provides cyber security and software license management to intelligent device manufacturers (IDMs). CmASIC modules can be soldered directly to embedded board solutions for Internet of Things (IoT) endpoints, protecting encryption keys, configuration keys, production records, device identity, and other sensitive information.

CmASIC modules are based on an Infineon EMVCo-certified, CC EAL 5+, FIPS 140-2-compliant chip, and leverage symmetric and asymmetric keys (128-bit AES, SHA-256, 2048-bit RSA, or 224-bit ECC) stored in non-volatile memory therein. The modules are certified to -40ºC to +105ºC operating temperatures, making them applicable in both commercial and industrial settings.

Delivered in a 5 mm x 5 mm VQFN-32 chip package, CmASIC modules can be interfaced with via USB and SPI communications. The CodeMeter Emedded modular runtime environment allows the modules to support a range of operating systems (OSs), including Linux, embedded Linux, Linux RT, Windows, Windows Embedded, mac OS, Wind River VxWorks, QNX Neutrino, CODESYS, B&R, and Rockewell for PLCs. VxWorks 7 Security Profile provisions, in particular, already include Wibu-Systems technology and are able to upgrade to CodeMeter Security to add license management and hardware-based key storage.
