Wibu-Systems presents in hall 4 booth 540 the software protection USB dongle based on CodeMeter® technology and featuring an extended operating temperature range. The device is equipped with a new set of components that have been carefully picked to withstand massive temperature lows and highs.
The new and more robust generation of CmStick/C, which was extensively tested in a climatic chamber to endure realistic extreme conditions, can be used in working environments subject to temperatures ranging from -40°C to +105°C; the additional Conformal Coating introduced also allows operation in conditions of condensing humidity.
The centerpiece of CmStick/C is a security microcontroller made by Infineon Technologies, whose hardened nonvolatile memory turned out to be the perfect match for the job. Since 2011, all CmStick/C have already embedded a smart card chip from the same manufacturer that is able to run in temperatures ranging from -25°C to +85°C.
Additionally the product family CmDongle combines in a single device security elements for advanced software protection with a skillful use of flash memory, partitionable in four areas, each meant for a specific purpose and individually configurable. This special architecture, together with an extreme ease of use, help manufacturers realize new products and design strategies.
Each CmDongle with flash memory includes both a CmPublic partition that allows the reading and writing of files just like a standard flash memory key and a CmSecure partition that is not detected as a separate drive and where only software authorized by CodeMeter API can read or write blocks of data.
The USB version comes with two additional partitions: the CmPrivate partition that provides AES-based data encryption and read rights issued by CodeMeter, and the CmCdRom partition where data can only be read, but not erased or overwritten.
