Perfection in Protection, Licensing, and Security

Monetizing Industrie 4.0 with a License-based Economy

2017-09-30 08:36 | 94 calls
CodeMeter is the enabler of a new economy that provides broader and customized services, while protecting the know-how of the inventors, securing data communications, and seamlessly interfacing with digital marketplaces.

In the old days of Industrie 1.0, steam and water powered the mechanical industry.

With the advent of Industrie 2.0, a new technical cycle began fueled by electricity and labor specialization. With that, the counterfeiting of physical goods began.

The Industrial Revolution 3.0 brought technological innovation that has made us avid consumers of IT and electronics. Quality and functions of products started to be pirated with more ease and vigor.

Now, in the age of Industrie 4.0, cyber-physical systems increase connectivity between remote production plants and shift the paradigm from customized hardware to software tailored business models. However, this opens the door to new cyber-attacks, sabotage and espionage acts perpetrated from within and from the outside of vendors' facilities.

With CodeMeter, all parties are fairly rewarded and customers enjoy better service:
- The vendor protects his machines with a dongle and controls the volume and type of the barrels emptied by his clients
- The inventor encrypts his own recipes and sells them via secure licensing to a marketplace in the cloud
- The bartender pays for
o A perpetual license for the drinks included in the basic leasing contract of the machine
o A feature-based license to power up his machine for large gatherings
o A pay-per-use license for the extra recipes he downloads from the online marketplace
CodeMeter also securely identifies the bartender’s machine and encrypts the communication.
