Karlsruhe, Germany – For the upcoming IoT Solutions World Congress, the leading IoT industry event taking place in Barcelona, Spain, October 16th to 18th, Wibu-Systems, a global powerhouse in secure software license management, exhibiting in hall 2 – booth D411, has created a daily program jam-packed with interactive initiatives that are sure to engage the international audience.
The strategic position of its exhibit inside the Industrial Internet Consortium pavilion underlines strong ties within the IIC ecosystem that over the past year have brought about pioneering discussions around the future of monetization in industrial systems and the foundational concept of trustworthiness in the industrial realm. These two studies show Wibu-Systems’ commitment to support comprehensive frameworks that apply modern business digital models and top-notch security mechanisms to all markets, be it manufacturing, healthcare, or connected transport.
Together with TRUMPF, a leading manufacturer of machine tools, lasers, and electronics for the industrial domain, Wibu-Systems will offer a live demonstration of a secure technology data marketplace throughout the entire event. Attendees visiting its stand won’t just be served a refreshing drink, but will also learn how a cocktail mixer is securely connected to a license management system in the cloud; this platform as well as the machine itself are powered with CodeMeter, Wibu-Systems flagship technology offering a complete license and entitlement lifecycle management, hardware and software based key storage elements, and the strongest encryption algorithms and methods. In the IoT age, the intellectual property is bound to digital assets that can be monetized once they have been adequately protected, can be personalized by melding inventors’ ideas with customers’ real-time demands, and can be distributed globally with SaaS platforms connected to the local back-office systems.
Wibu-Systems is also partnering with the Trusted Computing Group; at their exhibit D485 in hall 2, on October 16th, 10 am to 12 pm, and on October 17th, 2 pm to 4 pm, the company is going to showcase Trusted Computing-based IP Protection. While IP protection is typically associated with a hardware container in the form factor of a USB dongle, a memory card, or an ASIC, it is also possible to leverage the TPM, in this case an Infineon OPTIGATM TPM, that is often present on the target device where the software is running.
One of the top highlights of the IoT Solutions World Congress, however, remains its forum, where thought leaders share their latest breakthroughs across seven different tracks. Wibu-Systems and its partners will address the avid learning crowd during two sessions:
“We are delighted with Wibu-Systems participation in IOTSWC and in the IIC,” said Dr. Richard Soley, Executive Director, IIC. “By exhibiting with other members and speaking about IoT in several sessions, Wibu-Systems is helping to demonstrate the power of IIoT across industries to IOTSWC attendees.”
“Wibu-Systems innovative use of the TPM and strong root of trust provides strong protection of mission-critical IP,” said Thorsten Stremlau, Lenovo, TCG marketing work group co-chair.
Oliver Winzenried sees the Internet of Things, and in particular the Industrial Internet of Things, as the gateway to a real global economy without borders: “As humans push their social and personal limits with the help of technology, technology itself redefines our lives, fosters new perspectives for our future, and challenges us in new ways. Embracing the true international collaborative spirit of the IoT Solutions World Congress, Wibu-Systems is eagerly participating in the show to provide new stimulus for constructive thinking and tangible results.”
Wibu-Systems, a privately held company founded by Oliver Winzenried and Marcellus Buchheit in 1989, is an innovative security technology leader in the global software licensing market. Wibu-Systems’ comprehensive and award-winning solutions offer unique and internationally patented processes for protection, licensing and security of digital assets and know-how to software publishers and intelligent device manufacturers who distribute their applications through PC-, PLC, embedded-, mobile- and cloud-based models.
