Perfection in Protection, Licensing, and Security

Monetizing the Industrial IoT with a Secure License-based Economy

2017-09-21 11:46 | 53 calls
The IOT Solutions World Congress, co-organized in partnership with the Industrial Internet Consortium, expanded quickly to become the largest hub for new IoT technologies that are reshaping our world. With 250+ influential speakers and 100+ expert-led sessions, the IOTSWC is attracting key decision makers from around the globe. Several hundred pre-scheduled meetings through the brokerage service, ground-breaking testbeds, and the highly celebrated award program make the IOTSWC an exceptional event full of action and opportunities.

Wibu-Systems will present a healthcare centered success story:
On October 5th, 12.40 to 13.15 pm, in room 3, Oliver Winzenried will also address how the IoT is changing the Healthcare landscape and offer his view on Price-Responsive Business Models for the Healthcare Industry. Integrating CodeMeter in Fritz Stephan’s emergency ventilator units EVE has facilitated the company’s expansion into new global markets. A scalable licensing model that enables the remote activation of features on-demand lowers upfront investments for customers and enables modular pricing. IP protection, the privacy and integrity of patient data, and secure and regular online updates of the device software safeguard the invested know-how.

While the entire congress program is absolutely extraordinary, testbeds are creating an additional practical layer and the opportunity to interact with systems and their inventors. Wibu-Systems will be involved in two main demonstrations:

Collective Security Demonstration
IIC Member Pavilion, Hall 5, booth E571, throughout the entire show
Showcasing the cooperation between members of the IIC and Plattform Industrie 4.0, such as Aicas, Belden, GlobalSign, Infineon, Intel, Kaspersky Lab, Microsoft, and Waterfall Security Solutions, this demonstration will have two main attractions, an embroidery machine from our customer ZSK and a pump jack from Schneider Electric. The goal is to hack in real time into the complex system mimicking a real-world, multi-vendor, cloud-based environment, and prove that the application of current security technologies can protect the intellectual property, production data, software, firmware, and secure communication from business and technology sabotage that may occur via tampering, counterfeiting, or reverse engineering.

License Management with TPM powered with CodeMeter
Trusted Computing Group, Hall CC5, room 5.1, on Oct. 3rd, 9.30 to 10.00 am and 11.35 am to 12.00 pm
As value in the supply chain is being transferred from hardware to software, software protection is becoming the vital backbone of any mature cybersecurity strategy. In particular, hardware secure elements (like industrial grade dongles, memory cards, TPMs, or ASICs) in the target system offer a secure repository where encrypted code keys can be safely stored. By combining endpoint security with skillfully designed licensing models integrated with back office systems, new revenue streams are created for any software-powered business. In the new economy led by Industrie 4.0, the secure upgradability and updatability of system features and functionalities open the doors for a shorter time to market, adaptive process optimization, and global competitiveness.
